Working Equitation

At Barron Barn, we work with riders and horses of varying levels to train in working equitation. This provides riders the opportunity to unite in tradition, sportsmanship, and animal welfare. Riders use precise horsemanship to display and test their harmony, maneuverability and cattle handling skills.
