Private Clinics (Non-lodging)
Increase Your Confidence!
Join lifelong horsewoman and rancher Elin Parker Ganschow and her crew in Westcliffe, Colorado to problem solve and build the confidence of both you and your horse with our expert guidance. In this PRIVATE clinic, you and the members of your group will work one on one with our patient and knowledgeable coaches, setting goals each day to achieve and grow. Bring your own horse, or borrow one of ours, your horsemanship will improve, guaranteed.
Learn the fundamentals of horse psychology and behavior to understand what your horse is telling you while also learning different ways to communicate what you are asking of your animal. Starting on the ground lunging our horses each day, we will work together to ensure the confidence and communication is growing between you and your horse. Once we hop on, we will complete a wonderful ride together (including lunch), practicing our new-learned skills. Come join us in this mission to create such a beautiful understanding between horses and their handlers.

PEOPLE LOVE US
" We learned so much about horsemanship, and our horses really took care of us out on the trail. Madeline and Casey were excellent guides and made us feel like family. Sherry prepared delicious meals to keep us fueled for all the adventures. The trail rides were absolutely breathtaking, and the rancher's ride was so much fun! Music Meadows is hands down our favorite place to go as a family and we will be back!".
“If you are frustrated with what to do about your horse’s behavior problems, and feel like your horse has the upper hand, you will be amazed with how Elin can help you. She has the ability, knowledge and persistence to show you and teach you step-by-step, a full-proof method of gaining full respect from your horse. She does this in a very hands-on, positive way. You will come away having a new-found confidence in working with your horse, and your horse will have a new-found respect for you.”.
"Go back 100 years in time, be a part of a ranching family. This is the real deal. Peace, privacy and a real horse training and ranching experience. The owner is one in a million. The setting is like being in a movie. Madeline, our guide, is clearly very much at home here. Watch her work: she was born for this and is so grounded and content. This is not a cushy spa experience: thank goodness! It's real. Enjoy!!! This kind of opportunity does not come around but once in a life."
