Dressage Lessons and Training in Austin, Texas

It was an idea that began 7 years ago with the help, love and support  of her family that became a reality of today.  Sherwood Stables is a full service boarding, training and lesson facility focusing on the discipline of Dressage. It is located southwest of Austin, just 20 minutes from downtown.  Our goal is to provide a  firm foundation of understanding riding basics, for both the horse and rider,  by patiently following the training scale and improving the overall partnership with your horse.

Even with a focus on Dressage, we keep an open door policy for other riding disciplines, emphasizing the flat work with correct basics.  We offer lessons and training for ages 6 to adults.  Sherwood Stables provides 24 hour on-site care in a quaint, comfortable and relaxed environment, focusing on proper care and management for the horses.

We are also proud to announce that we are in the beginning stages of our breeding program with the recent addition of Lorelei HM in foal to Floriscount!   Thanks for taking a look!
