We are a full service boarding facility that offers lessons, leasing, training and camps.
We do things differently at GKM Equestrian, you don't just come get on a horse. You'll learn how to properly groom your horse with all the necessary steps to keep them and you looking your best. Next you will learn how to correctly and safely tack up your horse or pony. You will also get to experience many different types of saddles and bridles used in other riding disciplines. Our students are competent and knowledgeable about horse care and safety which allows their learning and riding to blossom with confidence. We are a small, dedicated professional equine facility, so we go for quality not quantity and don't crank out a lot of lessons each day. This ensures the horses' good health and a slow pace that riders can actually enjoy their lessons and get to know and love our equine athletes.
Most of our students are schooling lower level dressage and beginning the foundation for jumping. Many of our boarders have competitively shown in mid to upper level Eventing and Dressage. We also have some Hunt Seat riders with impressive show histories.
We are conveniently located to Birmingham, Mountain Brook, Homewood, Irondale, Trussville, Leeds and Moody. We are a 20 minute drive from downtown Birmingham. You don’t have to drive 280 to get to GKM Equestrian and there is very little traffic on the quick drive out. Come on out for a visit and see our farm established in 1922.
