Take the Lead Horsemanship’s students compete throughout Central Ohio at 4-H, open show circuits, and YEDA. With over 20 years of show experience, judging, advising a 4-H club, and attendance at a variety of clinics, we compete in several all-around classes in both western and english events.

Whether you are new to showing or a seasoned rider, Take the Lead helps you extend your skills, learn to stay calm, and have the best ride possible during your show. We focus on all the small details needed to build confidence and win that coveted ribbon.

Hands-on coaching is available during shows or we are available to show your horse for you. We’ve coached several exhibitors to become their own champion!

Virtual Coaching also available! Please visit our Virtual Lesson page for more info.


Show day and non-show day coaching fees vary. Ask for details.

Show grooming, banding, and braiding also available
