Cedar Falls Equestrian Center is an owner operated facility.We treat every horse like it is our own.
Lessons and training are based on classical methods and are adapted to work with each individual personality.
Emphasis is on correct position and proper aids according to your interest and need.
CFEC believes that consistently correct riding results in a horse with the life long physical conditioning and mental attitude to meet the rider's goals.
