CARA Philosophy

We are a family friendly barn teaching children and adults of all ages and abilities. The mission of CARA is to provide quality equestrian experience by assuring the highest professional training, positive motivation and reinforcement in a friendly safe environment. We believe that a quality sports program can enrich a person’s life experience and is an excellent means of building strength, flexibility, coordination and confidence.

CARA Facility

Located on 10 acres with stabling for 29 horses, CARA is devoted primarily to dressage, eventing, and basic riding. The facility’s two all weather footing arenas can each accommodate regulation size dressage arenas and are equipped with automatic sprinklers. The covered dressage arena is also lighted. Cara also offers
VITAFLOOR Whole Body Vibration Training. CARA is owned and operated under the direction of Ulrich and Dorie Schmitz. Rounds are made each night after closing and someone is on the property at all times to ensure the safety of the horses.
