The Petschenigs, Peter, and Nathalie, have recently relocated to Texas from California, where they had a loyal clientele.   As a testament to their program, several of their clients have stayed with them, commuting to Texas in order to continue with their training.  

Nathalie Petschenig explains, “Our mission is to help our clients reach their cherished goals.

I think what makes us unique is that we make a personalized plan for each client.   We cater to the individual so that we can work closely to produce results.” The Petschenigs are sought for their expertise in hunters, jumpers, and equitation.  Nathalie works with riders of all ages and all levels, from short stirrups to Grand Prix. She says, “I have a passion for teaching; it’s been so rewarding to help kids and adults improve and find success at the top levels.”

“We love it here in Texas,” says Nathalie, “because we are able to create the ideal training atmosphere.  In California, we were in a shared facility, whereas here we have a spacious ranch, and we live on the property.   We are committed to giving our clients one-on-one attention, and this setting supports that. It’s great for the horses too.  They stay sound and are really happy because they get personalized care and turnout in safe, quality pastures.”

The Petschenigs 17-month-old son Owen is already an equestrian.   One of their clients bought a miniature horse, and whenever Owen is able to get a pony ride, he expresses his delight with giggles and laughter.
