Inspiring the Youth

Ms. Royston,

    Thank you and Bruce so much for visiting our school.  Our students were very impressed with Bruce and his amazing horses.  They want to keep in touch with him throughout the year and learn more about his business and his animals.

We really appreciate your time, and we look forward to keeping in touch with you.


Thank you so much,
Kathryn Baca

A Unique Horsemanship Program


Our students learn basic handling of the horse, ground work, grooming, general care and even some riding.  It has been our experience that riding is not the most important part of learning to be with horses.  Our students develop working relationships with the horses on their team.


You will be happily surprised and amazed at the confidence, strength and loving attitude your child will take home from this program.  Parents of our students often remark about the new respect their children are showing to them and to others, along with a new sense of accomplishment and self-worth.


If your child is interested in learning more about horsemanship in a safe, positive and complete manner give us a call.

2010 - The United States Equestrian Federation, Inc. (USEF) invited Bruce Griffin to be a special guest speaker on their "Power Star Panel" at their Youth Convention on January 16, 2010. This convention was held during the USEF Annual meeting in Louisville, Kentucky. The USEF Youth Council invited Bruce Griffin to represent Friesians and showing horses in hand. The Star Power Panel consists of high profile equestrian athletes representing breeds/disciplines who share their backgrounds, experiences and offer insight to the attendees on what has made them so successful. Congratulations on this outstanding honor Bruce!

Bruce and Staci have a strong passion for mentoring youth. The images below are of Bruce in Sacramento California where he gave presentations at several of the local elementary schools. Bruce grew up in the area himself so he personally knows the difficulties that the children face there. Bruce spoke with them about his introduction into the horse world and presented them with photos and information about the horses and what he does. While the children enjoy the stories and photos of the horses, the true intent of his presentations are aimed at being a source of inspiration for the children. To show them that it doesn't matter where you come from, that you can do something great with your life if you work for it. He teaches them to "Be proud of who you are and what you can become".

We are available for School visits to give motivational talks and presentations.
