Shannon McKenzie (that's me) - is our riding instructor. I offer over 20 years of riding experience in and out of the show ring. I am fully insured and CHA Certified Level 2 Western, English and Jumping Instructor. I have attended over 60 clinics with various instructors and disciplines. I am always lessoning with my own coaches and improving my overall skills and knowledge by attending clinics, events and courses. I have shown hunter/jumper, dressage, gymkanna, entry level cowhorse and smaller western shows. I have a basic working knowledge of most equestrian disciplines, but my focus is on basic western riding, including ranch work, trail riding and gymkanna. If you are looking to get started riding horses, improve your skills, or just get out and have some fun riding with other people, that's what we're all about at Shallko. If you are looking to excel in the show ring - I am probably not your coach, I can get you started, but you will likely want to move on to someone more competitive...and I am happy to recommend other local coaches! We all have the same goals of wanting to help you succeed in your equestrian dreams!

I have students of all ages (3 and up), and we are a relaxed, fun loving bunch. I really enjoy helping people work through any issues they may be having with their horses, from over-coming fear and building confidence to trailer loading. We have several schooling horses and ponies available as well if you do not have your own horse. I work with you at your pace. There is no rush or pressure. My goal is to help you accomplish your goals in a safe, relaxed, fun way that's good for you and your horse.
