"To practice equestrian art is to establish a conversation on a
higher level with a horse; a dialogue of courtesy and finesse."
~ Nuno Oliveria
Talisman Farm is the only European classical riding center in Las Vegas
in which we educate our riders in the art of classical riding. Our program
has been designed by Will Faerber a classical riding master whose many
credentials include riding with classical Master Nuno Oliveira.
To be successful in the show ring a rider must be taught fundamentally
in Dressage in order to understand the biomechanics of the horse and how
a horse should be trained correctly (no short cuts - no gimmicks, no sedation). Horses
in our program are developed with proper top line & ridden round with
consistent training in classical dressage gymnastics pyramid to develop mentally
and physically then introduced to jumping where as the jumping round
is ridden with elegance & finesse. Programs are catered to horse's individual physical and mental well
being and also includes body work and emphasis on correct saddle fit.
On a personal note, I have loved horses since the time i could start
walking and am so very fortunate that in my riding career i've had the the opportunity to learn and ride with Olympic riders and international
coaches. I believe continuing education is important and to this day i continue to clinic as i feel that make me a well rounded trainer and riding instructor for my clients.
Call to schedule an appointment to audit our programs or clinicians we think you will find our
program unique to Las Vegas.
"Building a strong and balanced foundation
for horse and rider in dressage and over fences."
