“Do you give the horse his might?
Do you clothe his neck with a mane?
Do you make him leap like the locust?
His majestic snorting is terrifying.
He paws in the valley and exults in his strength;
he goes out to meet the weapons.
He laughs at fear and is not dismayed;
he does not turn back from the sword.
Upon him rattle the quiver,
the flashing spear, and the javelin.
With fierceness and rage he swallows the ground;
he cannot stand still at the sound of the trumpet.
Job 39:19-24 English Standard Version (ESV)
We are a riding and boarding barn just 20 minutes south of Spokane, by Spangle Washington. We have an indoor arena, round pen, stalls, pastures, and a dry lot. The barn is run by a Christian school, geared towards high school students, and we are also open to the community who wish to take lessons, board, or use the arena.
Why to ride at The Palouse Equestrian Center?
Horses lend us the wings we lack. Pam Brown. b. 1928
We have a indoor arena so you can ride year around. We can set up jumps or a small barrel pattern. The arena is about 80×120 so best to keep it at a canter/lope. But we have plenty of outdoor space for a good run. We have instructors for those who want to learn to ride or become better riders.
Sarah Holloway has been teaching riding lessons for the last seven years. Although originally from Montana she worked her way up to Barn Manager at Hidden Hills Farm and Saddle club before taking the job as Equestrian Coordinator in 2017 at Upper Columbia Academy and started developing the Equestrian program. Holloway teaches both English and Western riding styles.
Our horses are handpicked to give our students a safe and fun ride. We have a variety of breeds, colors, and temperaments to give diversity and meet the needs of the each student.
