We offer lessons for all ages, from beginning to advanced riders, and specialize in General Riding & Horsemanship, Reining, Cutting, and Trails.

our philosophy

We are strong believers that proper communication from understanding the psychology of the horse is the best basis of learning. 


Flight animals as intelligent as horses need to be spoken to in their language; our goal is to educate our rides to learn that language, and let the fun begin!


AGE + Experience

There are many styles of teaching but the one that works best is the one that is built on respect for the student, the horse and tradition. This is what I find at the Nojouqui Horse Ranch, a place of welcoming and respect. A great environment in which to learn.

Chris Morales

I rode horses throughout my childhood but was never taught HOW to ride. Nojoqui Ranch is a beautiful, warm and welcoming place to learn. From trail riding to competitions, Amber's smile, patience, experience and knack for teaching/ training keeps one coming back!  Supported by a wonderful staff, which is hard to find, I know I'm always in good hands.
