About Monarch StablesA fresh approach to hunter jumper training and instruction for all levels of riders

Monarch Stables offers a fresh approach to hunter jumper training and instruction for all levels of riders, and full service boarding for our equine partners. We have high-quality ponies and horses available for lease, for riders that are looking for a horse ownership experience without a purchase commitment.

Monarch’s facility is a 56 acres equine oasis located only 13 miles from downtown Austin and 12 miles from Westlake, South Austin. Grassy rolling hills slope to tree-lined Onion Creek affording opportunities to trail ride, stroll with a friend, or even catch a fish on a quiet afternoon. Horses enjoy daily turnout, a customized training program, memory foam stall mattresses, and regular rides in the large outdoor arena and riding field. Monarch Stables invites your family to come and enjoy the amenities.

Monarch Stables trainers Kalli Smith, Amy Gangstad and Karolina Vieserwork together to provide a coordinated hunter jumper training program for each horse and rider. Our trainers emphasize the importance of correct flatwork in developing finished show horses and skillful child and adult riders. Each brings years of experience and her own style to teaching horsemanship and hunt seat equitation skills to all levels and ages of riders.

Monarch Stables offers hunter jumper lessons to riders of all ages and skill levels on our experienced ponies and horses. Our after school riding program and summer camps are the perfect intro for the aspiring little equestrians in your family with convenient shuttle service from Westlake. Group, private and semi-private lessons are provided to riders ages 5 and up. For pony riders under 5 years, we can arrange for private lessons. Our group lessons are limited in size to 3-5 riders. We group riders according to their ability and offer several different lesson horse or pony options.
