Monarch Stables offers a fresh approach to hunter jumper training and instruction for all levels of riders, and full-service training and 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. 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 and Amy Gangstad work together to provide a coordinated hunter jumper training program for each horse, pony and rider. Our trainers emphasize the importance of correct flat work 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. 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.
