Forever Faithful Ranch

 Erika Foster

"I started out riding English when I was about 7 years old, it helped me build a solid and structured riding foundation. But, I wanted to go fast, so my grandmother bought my first horse when I was 8, and the first day she brought her home, she threw me flat on my back. That didn’t affect my want to ride though, I put my big girl pants on and got right back on. With Forever Faithful my goals are to teach kids to be the best rider that they can be, to connect with their horse on a spiritual level and strengthen their bond through confidence and positive influence. Riding horses isn’t just something we do, it’s a lifestyle, a privilege, and a gift that has been given to man by God. I plan on continuing my walk through Faith, my training, and hopefully I am able to work hard enough to make it to the NFR one day. I am on my way to getting my equine therapy license, I plan on using that to help children and adults with disabilities. I have been truly blessed with my endeavors in barrel racing and want to help and spread my knowledge to others who truly love the sport just as I do"

Horsemanship Sessions

Forever Faithful is Closed for Lessons for the Winter months.  Reopening mid-March 2018

  • All lessons are targeted towards children and families who love horses and desire to know more about them. Our horses teach you more than just Horsemanship, they help you with life lessons.

  • Our sessions are aimed towards children that just want to get to know horses by learning about their behaviors, grooming and saddling techniques and/or want to learn Western Riding or gain confidence, leadership, or just improve themselves by touching the spirit of the horse.

  • Here at Forever Faithful, we teach you the Love of God, Natural Horsemanship, the fundamentals of western riding, the basics for “How to care for the Horse”, fundamentals of barrel racing and speed events, trail riding and centered riding and more…..

  • We have a fun atmosphere where you can learn about horsemanship through games and fellowship. We teach you how to saddle, groom, etc, as well as, how to turn your first barrel.

  • Lessons are semi-private. There are only two - four students per class. We want to make sure you get one on one time with the instructor and the horse.
