Training, Leases + Board

Our Training Barn and Show Team are for the rider who owns or leases their horse. We customize your riding program to meet your personal needs and goals. Many of our riders ride on our Show Team, while other riders choose to only show occasionally or not at all.


Advantages of training at Sweetwater Farms

  • Whether you show or not, your program can be as challenging or casual as you desire it to be.
  • We host five county level GSDHJA shows each year. Our students are able to compete right here at the Sweetwater Farms grounds. By participating in our shows, you are able to accrue points towards year-end awards for GSDHJA. Shows offer classes at the Walk to Trot level to advance classes such as 3′ 6’’ Jumpers. In addition to showing at home, our Show Team attends GSDHJA county level shows.
  • Join us for a great time at the Championship Show with the Sweetwater Farms Team!
