We recommend you make a vacation out of it. Bring your spouse or friends. Ride our cutting horses during the day and visit historic Petaluma, famous Napa and Sonoma wineries, and cultural San Francisco by the afternoon. The day's riding will begin at 9 am and end by 4 pm, so there's time to see the sights. View Cutting Clinic Itinerary


THANK YOU  for an amazing day.  We all left knowing  a lot more than we came. I've always wanted to learn how to cut. It was so easy with you talking me through it.   I am so addicted!  Emily is printing off pictures for her locker at school, Tom is nursing his boney city boy butt, and I am anxious to graduate my reiner into cows. Keli, you have such a gift.  Not only are you a great rider but you are able to instruct others with such enthusiasm.  I know you do this all the time, but you treated us like we were the only clients/customers you had. 
Once again, thank you for everything:  wine, lunch, hats, CD, humor, the beautiful tour, hospitality,  friendship, and a lifetime memory. 
Nancy, Tom, and Emily

Got home safely and wanted to thank you, again, for a great two days of  lessons. I had a blast and felt I learned a lot about the "feel" of a cutter.  You have such sweet and talented horses. I enjoyed every one of them and each  had something to teach me. Although I came in as a dressage trainer and felt a  bit out of my element I was thrilled to find that all my years of working on my  balance surely paid off these last two days. Thank you for the wine, and I hope to see you again in the near future.


Hi Keli,
Thx so much to you, your horses, and your friends ... for a truly wonderful weekend.  It was a weekend of personal growth for me - wrestling through my own performance anxiety and expectations ... but that's a good thing.  If everything had felt comfortable and familiar, it means I wasn't learning anything new.  In viewing the video, though, I didn't look nearly as awkward as I felt.  Sigh ... smile  Thank you for the beautiful bottle of wine. .
