Deseos Arabians & Miniatures began in 1996 with two horses and one instructor in Falcon, Colorado. It has grown since then both in number of horses and instructors. We also now host guest clinicians and trainers. We became an LLC in January of 2008 and are currently located in Calhan, Colorado on 35 acres.
Originally our focus was on raising and training Arabian horses and teaching basic English riding lessons. Today we own and train various breeds which include: Arabians and Arabian Crosses, Mustangs, Quarter Horses, American Miniature Horses, a Connemara Pony, a Chincoteague Pony, a Paint, and Mixed Breeds. Our program includes Recreational Riding, Classical Equitation for the English and Western Rider, Starting the Untrained Horse, and Foundation Ground Work using Classical Training methods. We do not use "gadgets" or auxiliary equipment on our horses. We teach basic balanced seat equitation, riding through the use of seat and legs with light use of rein aids. In under to our Classical Lessons and Training program we have a CHA Certified Instructor who runs both enlgish and western programs, conducting testing and certifying students in the Certified Horsemanship Program.
Our lessons focus on recreational riding and enjoyment of horses.
We teach basic horsemanship and horsekeeping skills. Many of our students are learning to ride as a hobby, for exercise, for enjoyment on the trail, or just for fun! We have students learning horse handling skills and horse care in anticipation of getting their own horses in the future. Some students have their own horses and others use our lessons horses which are avilable on a limites basis.
We conduct the majority of our training at our ranch. On occasion we will organize trail rides off-site, or go to clinics, seminars, or schooling shows at an outside location. We will travel to your location to work with you and your horse for our regular rates plus a mileage charge.
