We Can Help Improve Your Ride.

No Oil Change Required.

Kali Groves is a riding instructor with several year's experience teaching equine enthusiasts around the Des Moines metro. Spending the last three years studying the methods of Ray Hunt and Buck Brannaman, and having had the unique opportunity of being a working student of Kip Fladland, Kali is passionate about developing healthy horse-human partnerships. Although she is well-versed in several riding disciplines, her passion for barrel racing is matched only by her devotion to good horsemanship. Kali has spent time on the rodeo road, so she knows what it takes to make the dream work. If you're a beginner who wants to start out on the right hoof, or a seasoned vet looking to improve your communication under saddle, give Kali a call!

Lesson Options

  • 7/6 Introductory Package

For our first time students (beginner or advanced!) we offer a discounted package of lessons. The "7-6" gives you seven private lessons for the price of six! Your first lesson will double as an assessment, so rider and instructor can sync up to help create a plan to work towards your horsemanship goals! All riders new to our program are required to start out with the 7-6 package before moving into group lessons. Plan on arriving 10 minutes before the start time of your first lesson so paperwork and scheduling can be finalized.​
$ 270 (One FREE Lesson)


  • 6 Private Lessons

Private lessons are great for the horseowner boarding at Copper Moon Ranch who wants to work on specialized skills or discipline specific goals. This service is not available to those who ride our program horses after completing the 7-6 package.
