Ally Helmer and Springmill Souvenir, Owned by David Pochatko
About Us We are a private farm, offering Riding Lessons and Horse Training in Saddle Seat, Hunt, Dressage, Western, Driving, and Showmanship. We are one of the few Morgan Training facilities in the area and we strive to be the best. Despite specializing in the Saddle Seat Show Horse, we tend to all breeds and disciplines and have experience with Arabians, National Show Horses, Quarter Horses, Paints, Appaloosas, and Warmbloods. If you are looking to be a top competitor in the Equitation, Juvenile, or amateur divisions on the "A" circuit is the place for you! We can be found at several rated horse shows throughout the year, and we also travel to many local open horse shows throughout the summer months for those that would like to show on a budget and just have fun.
