Lessons, Leases & Services

Alpenglow offers both English and Western lessons. I will help you outline goals to help you succeed in either Western or English disciplines on your horse or mine. English riders will enjoy learning basic principles up through low-level dressage and jumping. Alpenglow has horses to cater to first time English riders, through low-level hunter/jumper students. Western riders will benefit from learning the basics of western horsemanship up through advanced work including reining, ranch versatility, and gymkhana speed events. Alpenglow Equine has a wide range of western lesson horses with kind dispositions to teach beginning riders up to advanced levels for those looking to excel in their western discipline. All lessons include learning grooming, tacking up, basic groundwork principles, arena work, and out of arena work on Steamboats beautiful trails and meadow’s when available.


A great way to have a blast with fellow riders and get a taste of western speed events! It’s all fun and games!

“I love that Sam has her own string of horses to give lessons on. That is hard to find in this town. When I moved here I wanted to ride but didn’t have a horse to do it. I have ridden all my life until the last 5 years. It was great to take a few lessons with Sam on her horse and get back into it”

Elizabeth - Student

“Sam has an amazing ability to work with beginners all the way up to advanced riders. She has a great eye and always offers great tips that are easy to understand. I also think it’s impressive that she can teach both western and english disciplines and do it well!”

Kristin - Horse Trainer
