Training & Lessons

We have been in the horse business at this ranch for over 50 years.  With a heritage of fox hunting, raising sport horses, pony club and common sense we are proud of our program. Developing happy, sane horses with understanding riders for a future in whatever sport a rider wants to choose.  The Strang ranch has raised and developed upper level event horses, top quality hunters, grand Prix jumpers and some pretty good cow horses.

We take very good care of our string of very special school horses and ponies.
