Horse Training:

The methods are all resistance free focusing on strengthening the bond between the horse and owner. Our program will include owner instruction in the training process so that you can continue to work with your horse after it has left here. After all, it doesn't matter if someone other than you can manage your horse.

Hi Whitney,

I would like to take this chance to Thank you for the work you have done with Tyler and Delite. And with Terri for that matter. She was over last night and filled me in on the trailer loading session. patience , patience, patience!!!!! Not just talking Terri and the horse. ALL OF YOU!!! I am so thankful that Delite is working out with Tyler, she loves her horse and I have to remind myself she bought her with her own money she earned working for auctions, John, and selling "garden bugs" each spring for 3 years at a street sell we do in May in Hendersonville.You are so good at making your students feel challenged and at the same time more confident. I will be here Sat. and want to go with Terri and Tyler Sat. morning to the Ag. center. So tomorrow will be much to busy to convey these Thanks to you both but know I feel God blessed us when you came into our lives.


"Training young equestrians has been a joy for me over 20 years now. I love to take the kids to their first show and make it a fun and memorable experience for the horse, the rider and their parents. Fun shows are hosted at Lazy K Ranch so that everyone can feel the joy of winning a ribbon." Whitney Mulloy

I can teach you to ride the horse you own and work with any problems you have as a team. This is Raksha and even though she only has one eye she still is a versatile working horse. She can give lessons, win ribbons at local horse shows, and she is a steady mount on the trails and in parades.




Molly & Natcho


This is Molly and her horse Natcho. Natcho is retired from a dressage career. He is from Knee Deep Again Farms in Michigan. Molly is working to make Natcho a great kids horse.

While working for veterinarians they noticed how I was able to administer med's and do procedures with horses that most people had a difficult time handling and they started requesting that their clients work with me to make their horses safe to handle.

I started my own business called Misfit Acre working with problem horses while I was a Critical Care Technician in West Palm Beach, Florida. I worked as a critical care technician for Dr. Byron Reid in South Florida. http://www.reidequine.com

Dora The Explorer


When I first got Dora from Alabama she was very difficult to catch and halter. Dora and I worked with resistance free horsemanship training on getting her to trust people and let them do things with her.

She is now doing beginner english riding lessons and trail rides. You should see her jump! She is jumping 18" cross rails with ease.

Dora is my birthday / festival pony party pony giving many young children their first pony ride ever. Dora is offered for sale. Check her out on our news page.
