We board a small number of horses at Lane's End. Our boarders are dedicated to progressing with their horses in a way that supports their physical as well as mental/emotional health, riders who are excited by dressage and/or enjoy other avenues of enrichment as well.

Please use our contact form to connect with us if you're interested in more information.


Lane’s End owner/ teacher/ trainer Nancy Thacher is an effective, versatile teacher with a broad knowledge and experience base. She tailors her interactive approach to each horse/rider combination.

Currently Gerd Heuschmann (author of Tug of War and Balancing Act) and natural horseman Michael Sparling come to Lane’s End about twice a year to do training days. If you are interested in riding with Dr. Heuschmann, e-mail Jana Steffen at If you are interested in participating in the natural horsemanship clinics, contact Anne Arnoldy at
