Christa's new book is finally available!!!

We have developed a strong horsemanship program geared towards helping humans to better understand their equine partners physically, through an understanding of their anatomy and biomechanics, mentally, through an understanding of their psychology: how they think and learn and spiritually, through an understanding of our horse's needs, how to fulfill them and how they experience the world.  We do this through:

                                    *      Lessons     *     Clinics    *    Training Programs    *    Courses    *    Edu-Vacations    *


Lessons - One-on-one instruction in the area of your interest (groundwork, ridden work, trail experience, stockmanship, foundation development, hoof care, saddle fit, Anatomy and Bio mechanics, Conditioning and Rehabilitation...)

Clinics - Clinics/Workshops are held on a variety of topics and by master horsemen/horsewomen.  They will be listed on our Clinics page.

Courses - Rock'n Star Ranch is host site to Kheiron College of Equine Therapy and proud to offer Hoof Care, Saddle Fit and Conditioning and Handling as stand-alone courses offered through the school.  We are also happy to customize a course especially for you if you are interested in something more personalized.  Please don't hesitate to approach us with your education needs!

Our mission is to provide young horses with the best start possible, older horses with positive learning experiences and to support the serious rider in deepening their understanding through education for the purpose of strengthening their relationships with their horse: making everyday riding endeavors safer and more enjoyable for both.

Educating horse owners and horse lovers alike in:

  • Biomechanics

  • Anatomy & Movement

  • Saddle Fit

  • Hoof Care

  • Foundation Horsemanship

  • Hackamore Horsemanship

  • Stockmanship

  • Bridle Horse Development

  • Leadership Based Relationship

  • Back Country Safety and Trail Experience

  • … and much, much more!


We strive to prepare people for all aspects of horse ownership and increase people’s confidence to enjoy their horses to the fullest degree. We offer our education program to most levels of riders whose focus is the love of the horse and personal development. Although we're a non-competitive atmosphere and focused on personal development, the relationship-based style of horsemanship is a complement to almost any style of riding.


We like to use a variety of disciplines and activities to provide purpose and fun for the horses and students in our program, such as:

  • Working Equitation

  • Stockmanship

  • Hoof ball

  • Drill Team

  • Trail Skills

  • Mountain Trail

  • Garrocha
