Iron Legacy Ranch Horse Riding Lessons a





  • Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind & strength

  • Love & serve others as we ourselves would like to be loved & served

  • Love and care for horses and use them to teach love and life skills

Here at Iron Legacy Ranch we use horses to connect with people where they are at. We have found in our own lives that horses are an incredible tool to connect with ourselves and others, the way God intended. There are so many life skills one can learn from and with horses.


Our passion is to provide a safe, loving, positive, encouraging, educational environment for others to make that connection with a horse.


Iron Legacy Ranch (ILR) uses Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) as a teaching base. CHA is a great organization that trains instructors to focus on safety and a solid foundation.


At ILR the crew daily challenges each other to continue personal education, growth, as well as seeking ways to show love and encourage others.
