All About You Horsemanship

Trish Beres and her partner and fiancé’ Jerry Zaabel have 60+ years combined experience in horsemanship, training of horses, working with people at all walks of life instructing teaching and coaching horsemanship skills in literally every discipline.

Several years ago Trish and Jerry designed a program that evolved into a business.  All-About-Horsemanship is a philosophy, a mission and a passion that is specifically designed for the individual.  Typical “Riding Lessons” teach the student to sit a horse, make it move and take a ride.  The All-About-U-Philosophy is that the experience between the horse and rider is much more than “just taking a ride”.  It is an experience between the horse and rider that should be mutually beneficial.

Many riding instructors have a program that they fit the student into.  All-About-U-Horsemanship designs each and every training/coaching session directly to benefit the student’s goals.  Each student is matched with an equestrian partner that has similar personality character as the student.  The student works with the instructor at the students speed (not the instructors).  Each new student starts by explaining their level of experience, then their goals in horsemanship.  Do you simply wish to trail ride? Would you like to eventually show horses?  Would you like to jump or show Dressage?  Are you recovering from a bad experience?  Is there a confidence issue?

Unlike many other programs All-About-U-Horsemanship understands there are many people who have always wanted to ride the range or show horses in the big shows, but have been held back by a bad experience.  We specialize in helping people re-gain their confidence so that this great sport of horsemanship can be part of their lives.

Our goal at All-About U-Horsemanship is “Competent riders, Confident Horses”.  This is the secret or key to a successful partnership between horse and rider.  As the rider becomes Competent the horse becomes Confident in his response to the riders requests.  Anyone can learn to successfully ride a horse.  We have worked with everyone from young children to senior citizens, physically handicapped, emotionally challenged students and experts who have already accomplished second level dressage horsemanship.

We design training/coaching sessions that are All-About-U and your goals!  Horses are the most wonderful animals ever created and when you are fortunate enough to partner with them it is an experience beyond words.


 “I always wanted to have a horse of my own!”

When it is time for you to own your own horse, All-About-U-Horsemanship in partnership with Wooden Bridge Ranch will help you connect with a perfect match.  We evaluate horses physically and emotionally for students/clients to insure the proper match is made for the long term relationship horse ownership brings.


   “Can you help me with a problem I am experiencing with my horse?”


All-About-U-Horsemanship is equipped to deal with any issue between horse and rider.  Trish Beres is a John Lyons Certified horse trainer with 20 years experience dealing with issues in equine behavior.  Trish is also a certified riding instructor.  With a unique eye for identifying communication errors, physical disabilities and simple behavior problems, Trish can quickly spot opportunities for improvement between horses and riders and design a plan to fine tune and correct any issue.

"Trish is a great person, with a strong and reliable work ethic.  I have all the confidence in the world that no matter the discipline you ride or how large the problem is, she will be able to help you achieve your goals."

 “Please don’t “Cow boy” my horse”

All-About-U-Horsemanship does not use harsh training methods!  “Natural Horsemanship” is the method of ALL training conducted here.  We believe a horse’s confidence is somewhat of a fragile emotion.  There are no quick fixes (aside from medical issues that can quickly change behavior) here.  All-About-U-Horsemanship and Wooden Bridge Ranch believe for a mutually rewarding experience the equine must be involved directly and understand what the expectations are.  The old saying – “Tell me, I’ll forget, Show me and I might remember, but involve me and I understand” is the key to successful horsemanship.

It’s fairly easy to see when an equine is learning.  It is also easy to see when they are fearful or frustrated.  Understanding how to deal with those emotions for a successful training experience is not always so easy.  We know how to make it work!

If I buy a horse, where can I keep him?

With the association of All-About-U-Horsemanship and Wooden Bridge Ranch, training and boarding are made easy!  They are located together in Queen Creek Arizona.  Wooden Bridge Ranch is an expert horse boarding facility fully equipped to accommodate your horse.

In the summer of 2010 Wooden Bridge Ranch will open its new facility in the beautiful White Mountains of North Eastern Arizona.  At an elevation of 6,700 feet the summers are beautiful.  The temperatures seldom exceed 85 degrees.   With a fully functional 40 acre ranch complete with horse facilities including a large round pen, fenced riding arena, turn outs and thousands of trails to explore this ranch, near Show Low Arizona is the perfect retreat for you and your equine partner.  There are several reasonable hotels within 20 minutes of the ranch, and camp sites available on the ranch itself.

Ride in the Painted Desert, along the Salt River, or within the beautiful Sitrgaves National Forest.  Wooden Bridge Ranch North 40 has it all waiting for you to explore
