How much time in the saddle? I try to have
the students on the horse 50 minutes of the hour. As soon as students
arrive, I try to get them in the saddle. My goal is for each student

or it's an on and off type thing, I'll typically work through the
rain. It's best to call me on my cell phone concerning emergencies
or to talk when I'm out at the ranch on weekends. Please call me
If you are concerned as to whether lessons are cancelled or not.
My cell phone number is 214-335-6404.
