Training & Lessons
We are located in Hanford, California. We offer colt starting and performance training for reined cowhorse events, ranch versatility, ranch horse classes, and trail. We have cattle on the ranch for training. We also offer horsemanship and performance lessons. We welcome all ages and level of riders. We do not have lesson horses, but we love to help people get matched with the right horse.
Jolene supervises the cattle crew (John & Shug)
We raise and train performance horses. Our team consists of trainer Lyn Meredith, her husband John, and our ranch helpers Veronica and Jessie. Lyn has been training horses for clients for 20 years, and has always trained her own horses since she was a youth. She is a horseman first, using herd behavior to motivate horses. Her number one priority is to build a horse who is confident and who loves his or her job. She uses performance principles, a reining foundation, and dressage for optimal balance and performance in each horse's projected discipline. She currently shows in reined cow horse events, and in ranch horse versatility. She is a carded judge with the World Ranch Horse Association, and has training as a judge with the National Reined Cow Horse Association. She has shown in and judged extreme cowboy races in the past.

Sign up early for my cattle working clinic! We will working on techniques to enhance timing and feel on a cow. I adjust the techniques for every level of horse and rider. We will utilize a flag and the square pen to slow down the cattle work in order to isolate specific parts of each maneuver. This clinic is also suitable for beginners, even for people whose horses have never seen a cow. My facility and program is built to help horses and riders gain confidence in their performance goals.
