Talented instructors, quality horses, first class facilities and a commitment to excellence makes the Vista Verde Horse Program really unique.
Ranch Trainer Terry Wegener is a NRHA Money winner and has an extensive background in reining and ranch versatility horse training, competition and judging. He brings this experience to the Vista Verde riding program and has helped our guests learn to far exceed their expectations in regards to how much they can learn in a week. From both demonstrating what he’s teaching our young horses to helping you learn how to better communicate with your own horse, you might find that you never want to leave the arena because you’re having too much fun!
There has been an extensive investment in the facilities and horses to make the Vista Verde Horse Program top notch. The full-size heated Indoor Riding Arena allows for year round riding in comfort. The Mare Barn gives our breeding stock a comfortable and quiet place to deliver and raise the foals. As a guest, you’ll enjoy the benefits of these great facilities in your riding experiences.
Various times throughout the year Horsemanship Clinics are offered at Vista Verde Ranch. These are in addition to our on-going riding program which always offers the opportunity for clinics and lessons. The Horsemanship Clinics are intensive riding experiences, focusing on either specific techniques for the competitive rider or general horsemanship skills for the rider looking to improve their overall skills. The next clinic is March 21-25, 2012.
Breeding Program and Sale Horses
Terry oversees our breeding and training program as well, helping ensure that we are bringing in the next generation of fabulous horses for our guests. We breed around six well-pedigreed mares each year to our own stallion and are enjoying the wonderful foals as they grow up at the ranch. As a guest, you can enjoy seeing these foals as they are born and begin the training process. Often times Terry and his team are working the young horses while they are teaching you to work with and train your own horse. It’s just amazing how much there is to learn about horses, and Terry and his team are here to share that with you.
