Speak Horse offers horse training, riding lessons and Adventure Rides to horse enthusiasts of all skill levels. Whether you are a seasoned rider seeking adventure, or a curious first-timer looking to develop riding skills, Speak Horse can cater to your needs. Zia’s non-traditional training and teaching methods provide students and horses with the opportunity to learn and grow in a way that is tailored to individual strengths and needs.


With her twenty plus years of horse and riding experience, Zia has a firm understanding of teaching techniques and how they are best applied to each individual and situation. Her philosophy is to keep things fun and interesting. Rather than robotically running students through basic lesson formats, Zia urges each of her students to develop a personal relationship with the horse they are paired with. This relationship will foster an understanding of the dynamic between horse and rider and result in a more educational and fulfilling riding experience.


The Adventure Rides offer horse enthusiasts of all skill levels a unique and fun riding experience. These outings on horseback explore different trails in an exhilarating and unconventional way. Whether it's running the horses through meadows, exploring scenic mountain terrains, or enjoying the serenity of a desert ride, there's an Adventure Ride for everyone. Those interested can even go swimming with the horses when the weather allows. Camping trips are also offered during the summer months.


Join Zia and experience education, adventure and passion on a whole new level. Nowhere else will you find a business that encompasses so many different elements of horsemanship. Speak Horse offers more than a recreational activity or casual learning experience, it offers a way of life. In order to develop a profound relationship with these wonderful animals you must be able to think, breathe, live and speak horse.
