We have a few stalls open - give us a call!

Jesse Sommerville will be back for another clinic on Saturday, April 22nd.

We need help! We're looking for a couple of people to join our awesome team that takes care of our great clients and their excellent horses! See our Jobs Page for more information, and contact Jessica at to apply.

At Traumhof, we're passionate about caring for horses and take great pride in providing them with the best living environment we possibly can. They have big stalls in an airy barn, get daily turn-out in clean hog-fuel paddocks, are fed at least 7 times a day, get warm water throughout the winter months, and are generally treated with care and respect from everyone. Visitors often remark how happy all the horses seem. You won't see any hiding at the back of their stalls - they'll be up front, wanting attention and begging for treats. Come visit and see for yourself!

Our resident trainer, Nicki Grandia, has ridden and trained extensively with Shannon and Steffen Peters, among many other excellent trainers. Her main focus as a trainer is to empower the student to be able to train and ride their own horse and to attain whatever goals they may have, be it in the show ring or at home. She offers a safe supportive environment to methodically work through any challenges that may come up step by step, and have fun along the way! Nicki is also extremely experienced with young horses as well as horses of all breeds, levels, and even disciplines.

In addition, we have hosted clinics with Shannon Peters, Steffen Peters, Debbie McDonald, and David Blake, and regularly host clinics with Lientje Scheuler and Jesse Sommerville. This gives our clients the opportunity to learn from some of the best trainers in the world, with their own perspectives and strengths, while maintaining the same overall philosophy.
