Professional Instruction

Curriculum 

Our Guide School focus is on Guiding. We will not waste your time and money teaching you to be a camp cook, or wrangler/packer. In fact, this is not equestrian based instruction at all. We teach Guiding by  4x4 and foot. Many Guide Schools are basically a "pack trip" type of school where they teach you how to camp. If thats the type of school you are looking for, this isn't it. Our school is geared more for the individual who wants to be a PROFESSIONAL HUNTER.
