From colts to World Champions, kids to adults, everyone has goals and we're here to help achieve them! We have a varied training staff that capably handle young horses, finished horses, prepare the ama or Jr Exb horses & ponies, as well as teach the riders and drivers. We do Saddle Seat, Hunt Seat, and Western, performance and equitation as well as being known for our consistent success with harness horses and ponies. The incredible sport of showing horses is one that we hope to share with many. It is a wonderful journey that brings with it sportsmanship, competition, laughter, and hard work...    What more could one ask for?!?

Vitamins and supplements:
We have worked very hard to be sure that we are feeding a high quality, consistent feed that supplies the show horses, stallions, and broodmares with everything they need to be healthy and give their best. Therefore, unless your horse needs extra attention in an area, you will not be likely to have extra supplements on your bill. 
Horses will be evaluated on an individual basis and additional supplements will be discussed and billed on your regular statement. Some of the supplements we have had good luck using that are generally considered when a horse is in need of something are:
Platinum Performance, Cosequin, Biotin, Mare Magic, U-Gard, Fat Cat

Any horse, upon request, can be put on Continuex daily care wormer. They will then be enrolled in the ContinueCare program that provides $5,000.00 worth of coverage in case your horse colics. We charge once a year for the enrollment and filing fee and year's supply of wormer. The cost is $265.00 per horse. GRS will keep the records that the company requires should you need to collect on the insurance.


Bills are sent out prior to the first of each month and are due in full upon receipt. All bills more than 30 days overdue will be charged an 18% annual fee as a late charge. This will appear on your statement as 'Late Charge'.

**Special shows ..... some shows may be charged differently due to special circumstances. Those will be discussed and an estimate of the cost will be available at time of entry: i.e. Oklahoma, Circle J.
