Mounted archery is the combination of excellent riding and archery. It's one of the first things humans did on horseback 3000 years ago. At Ridgeline we follow a structured curriculum to get students from never touching a bow or a horse, to galloping while shooting. Safety is our number one priority. We use only foam and blunt tip arrows while riding and shoot at gong targets. Send us a message to learn more about mounted archery!


We are happy to be creating a legacy of horsemanship. Our equestrian students learn horsemanship, behavior science, and of course riding! Our goal is to teach our students is all the skills they need to own and train their own horse and we offer leases, horse sales and training for our students.  Horse lessons for ages 7 and up in multiple western and english disciplines.
