After 36 years of Instructing riders of all ages and levels, Gerri has retired from teaching for the public and has gone back to her first love. Raising Quality Foundation bred Paints and QH. Starting them slow from the ground up gives these young horses a Solid Foundation to lead them into a life of All Around Opportunities. We firmly believe in the teachings of the Dorrance Brothers and Ray Hunt.
In 2007 she was awarded the Instructor of the Year - Circle of Honor from the American Riding Instructor Association and Top Ten Training Tips.
It all started the day I met California Trouble. Solid foundation breeding and a personality that happily accepted any discipline I asked him to do. His foals excelled in all areas in the arenas, as well as stellar citizens out on the trails and on the working ranches.
Going back to those old bloodlines is the basis of our program.
Gerri has always been a Mom first. To her, being a parent is the Most Important Job you can have.
She believes it is important to instill Respect, Responsibility and a good work ethic in children.
But, Most important is allowing them to Think Outside the Box and be Creative.
Her youngest son Cody graduated from FSU with a degree in Literature and a minor in Economics. He has always played the Bass and is currently touring with the Morningsiders.
Rob received his degree in Web Design, Arts in Information Technology and played drums in several bands.
He now watches over us from Heaven.
