We began in 2009, and embrace all riders and breeds. We are currently

We have four active chapters that provide a wide variety of schooling shows, clinics, parties, and excursions on the calendar, as well as great volunteers who keep things going. We have a scholarship program that is available to help our members.
Does your GMO offer unique classes or activities that cater to youth, adult amateurs, or professionals?
Our Southern Chapter is introducing a virtual schooling show this year and also a lead line class for our youngest riders.

Chapters do all kinds of activities: Shows, riding clinics, ground work clinics, yoga, equine massage, trips to see shows. The list is varied and long.
We are so grateful to all of our volunteers and members who make these opportunities possible. We especially thankful for all of the organizations
that help our horse world continue learning and improving.
