Owner/Trainer: Andrea Rajniak Willden
Andrea has been around horses her whole life. She was brought up and trained by a very well known trainer in Utah who ultimately taught her everything she knows about horses. She has always aspired to start a business of her own involving horses and she’s super excited about her team. She is licensed through Farmington city and the State of Utah.
Her main goal and focus is to help build confidence to create a successful relationship between horse and rider. A few members of her team are medically trained from Advanced EMT's to Registered Nurses and there is at least one on site at all times. Andrea(Owner/Trainer) is an Advanced EMT along with her husband. We want to continue to grow our team and help people achieve their goals in the equine world.
