Welcome to Allison Acres ~ Galt, CA ~ (209) 224-4304
Hello! Allison Acres is a small ranch where we live and raise horses (and sometimes cattle). We've got 20 acres, a nice covered arena, a 20 stall barn, some round pens and pasture. We are in Galt, CA, which is in the Central Valley, about 25 miles south of Sacramento.
My name is Cindi, and you can learn more about me, if you so desire, on my page. I'm the owner of Allison Acres and the horsemanship instructor. This is my fulltime job, and I'm usually around for whatever my clients might need.
Primarily we do lessons and boarding and training with an emphasis on the horse's emotional control and being a safe and willing partner.

Yes, we do have exotic breeds! Just look at this one on the hot walker:
Here's an aerial view of
our place. It looks a bit different now -
My daughter is the main rider in the family. She has taken lessons in barrel racing, cutting, reining, western pleasure, working cowhorse, and has studied Parelli groundwork extensively and has also been on a drill team. She has brought along the training on several horses here and I could not do this job without her.
As for me, the other rider in the family, I used to ride much more, but I was born with hip dysplasia, and over the years it's gotten really bad, and I'm going to have to have a double hip replacement at some point. If I don't ride, I don't have nearly as much pain, so I mostly don't ride anymore. I spend most of my time caring for the horses, working on their groundwork, and teaching. I do love to teach. We have a lot of horses of all ages so we have a great place to learn about horsemanship.
We used to have cattle and that was very fun!
Now we have goats, chickens, ducks, a mini donkey, and a whole bunch of barn cats!
