A practical approach to better communication between horse and rider

At Rafter P Ranch our goal with every horse is to cultivate confidence and trust between the horse and rider in a friendly, non-competitive and non-judgmental environment. Regardless of your preferred riding discipline and experience, the basics of timing, consideration for your horse and yourself, and consistency in your requests will allow you and your horse to excel together in partnership. 

We recognize that not all horses will make it through traditional training programs, which are designed to ‘weed out’ horses that don’t fit the mold and are quick to label them ‘difficult’ or ‘untrainable’. At Rafter P Ranch we offer programs tailored to fit each horse’s and person’s individual needs.

Whether you send us a colt to start or a horse already under saddle, we will take the time to make sure we do our best to help you meet your goals.




Situated in Geneva, Florida, Rafter P Ranch sits on 35 acres of beautiful Florida grassland, with easy access to trail rides in addition to the ranch's large, lighted arena, round pen and pastures - all of which provide excellent riding opportunities as well as picturesque scenery. 

Lessons, clinics and training also take place at Everleaf Equestrian Center where there is a large covered arena and outdoor jumping arena. 

Horses aren’t the only animals you will find on the Ranch. There are numerous family dogs as well as pigs, goats and cattle roaming the property. Some of our animals enjoy their own following on social media, so check out our Facebook and Instagram pages.
