Paul DuBray Performance Horses

Light Hands.  Soft Feel.  Connection with Your Horse. 

Light hands.  Soft Feel.  Connection.  These are the concepts that best express the approach that Paul uses in helping horses and riders develop partnerships.  Paul's extensive background in horsemanship, which includes the classical foundation of dressage, hunter-jumper, and multiple western-disciplines, enables him to develop a training program personalized to help you and your equine partner reach your maximum potential.   

Cowboy Dressage
We are excited to participate in the burgeoning community and discipline of Cowboy Dressage.  We offer training for the student and horse, with a focus on developing a "dialogue"  between the horse and rider, rather than a monologue.  Through individual instruction and clinics, riders learn to communicate effectively through body posture, alignment, and a "soft feel" of the reins. 

Located at North Peak Equestrian Center in Walnut Creek, with three areas (two of which are covered), two round-pens, and direct access to miles trails, we offer  year-round training opportunities to help you meet your goals, whether you are interested in basic horsemanship, showing, or trail-riding. 

Lessons in Horsemanship
We offer a lesson program for students looking to build their confidence and skills.  You may ride on your own horse, or one of ours.  We offer group and individual lessons.  Our riders include western and English riders, and we are able to offer a range of opportunities, including fun sessions with barrels and other obstacles

Trail Obstacles and Outdoor Trail Riding
We have direct access to the Mt. Diablo Trail System and the East Bay Regional Parks for enjoyment or competition.  We also offer Cowboy Trail Obstacle clinics to help you build confidence with your horse and sharpen up your skills.
