About

Based in Six Mile, South Carolina, CBR Horses is owned and operated by Carl and Brenda Rathz. CBR Horses offers lessons and instruction for both adults and children, as well as a variety of services for owners and their horses. CBR Horses operates out of the CBR Horses Boarding and Riding Center.

Carl and Brenda believe that the relationship between horse and rider is very important. And many times they focus on developing horsemanship skills before advanced riding can be addressed. Once understanding is met, the progression can start through hands-on activities, such as care, seatwork, flatwork (i.e. hunt seat, western riding, dressage), and fast-tracking into barrel racing, jumping, hunters, and eventing.

We also believe that we can help individuals who already own horses understand them better through communication and general horsemanship skills. We have students ranging in age from 3 years (which depends upon development skills) well into adulthood.

CBR Horses certifications include ARIA (American Riding Instructors Association) and EAGALA (Equine Assisted Growth & Learning Association). Brenda and Carl have a combined 49 years of experience in riding, training, teaching about, and caring for horses.
