Danielle is also very capable and enjoys the retraining an off the track thoroughbred (OTTB) or a “problem” horse.  More experienced horses are welcome as well for tune up rides or we can help with a particular issue or assist you in moving up a level.

Before any horse comes in for training we will meet with the owner and horse to make sure we set expectations and appropriate goals for the time frame the horse is with us. Other packages can be customized to meet the needs of almost any situation. For more information on our training program, please contact Danielle directly.



Boarding your horse at our private facility which rests on 24 private acres of gently rolling pastureland, you can expect a safe and comfortable environment for your horse and peace of mind for you. Our barn is professionally run by our barn manager and owner, Danielle Durette Tursky who makes sure that all of our horses are happy and healthy.

  • What makes us different from many barns is our attention to detail and our extra effort to keep your horse happy.

Rice bran and flaxseed pellets are added to provide increased essential fatty acid content and higher caloric density. Organic trace minerals, yeast culture and added amino acids support optimal muscle function.  Only the best for our horses!

  • Turn out and turn in
  • Mineral blocks in fields
  • Use of all facilities – including laundry facility!

Danielle works with riders of all ages and levels to safely develop a balanced and independent seat while maintaining a clear communication and harmony with the horse.

Emphasizing the fundamentals of good horsemanship, she helps students create a working relationship with the horse built on trust, understanding, and compassion.

“Developing positive communication and respect between horse and rider creates an atmosphere of success for both of you”


Beginner – You will learn and experience everything about horses!  As a beginner, you will first learn barn orientation.  Knowing how a barn runs is beneficial to a rider, as you will gain competency and confidence in horsemanship, allowing you to be a more independent horse person.  Each rider will learn general safety, including safe groundwork and horse handling.  Riders will learn to groom and tack their mount, becoming more familiar with the horse and its tack.  As a rider, you will learn basic riding position (seat, hands and legs, and what they do!).  Riders will learn the horse’s gaits and gain confidence to safely steer their horse through the gaits independently.  For advanced beginners, trail rides and jumping will be introduced to those who wish to learn.

Intermediate – Riders will be able to care independently for their horse and to understand the reasons for what they are doing.  There is a development to a secure and independent seat.  Jumping courses, more intricate dressage and cross country jumping are introduced at this level. 

Advanced – Rider is competent and experienced riding different mounts with confidence and control.  At this level, rider is able to work with trainer in progressing their horse’s training and is able to explain the reasoning for their methods.  Rider is able to “feel” the horse and adjust properly.
