We would like to introduce you to the Ride With Pride, Inc. Horsemanship School in Southlake. We specialize in teaching students ages 3 and older how to care for and ride a horse safely. Ride With Pride, Inc. has been in operation since 1980. Our Instructors are certified with the Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA).
-Instructor Grady Bruton (CHA & PATH Certified) grew up at the barn with his mom, Doreen Bruton (owner of Ride With Pride). He became an instructor in 2011 and graduated from Tarelton State University with a Bachelors degree in animal science. Grady continues to enjoy passing his knowledge of horsemanship to the younger generation.

-Instructor Abby Sutton started riding lessons at our barn at the age of 3 and became an employee in 2015. She has an adorable appaloosa named Jimmy who resides at the barn. Being an instructor at Ride With Pride inspired Abby to attend UNT and pursue a degree in education.

All of our instructors bring safe, fun and educational lessons to our arena.
