  • Katrina Goehring

    Head Wrangler

    In my life I've found that a fun and safe horse experience can provide great opportunities to learn not only about horses and God's creation, but also to see your experiences and spiritual life grow. Camp offers so many great horse opportunities - trail rides, instruction hours, arena lessons, little dudes classes, horsemanship camps, our fall & spring after school horse program, private lessons & trail rides, etc. - I hope you'll take the chance to enjoy one next time you are here.  -Katrina

    Terri's voice will be the one you hear answering the phones most days, and helping you get registered for an event.  It is nice to place a face with a voice.
