"Educating the heart without educating the mind,
is no education at all." -Aristotle
Located above the sparkling blue waters of Colvos passage, NHEC is a premier equestrian facility and educational resource. We have recently joined the Gig Harbor Community and we offer a unique and exciting paradigm that facilitates the overall wellness of both horse and rider.
NHEC is under the direction and management of Sabrina Duncan, and home to her AQHA stallion, Tejon Please. Sabrina's 20-year career in the equine industry has proven successful as an AQHA, APHA and NRHA Competitor, Equine Trainer & Behaviorist, Riding Coach, Equine Welfare Advocate, and AQHA Breeder.
A unique component of NHEC Lesson Program is the caliber of our school horses. Each one is raised from our breeding program, educated in our training program, and has show ring experience. Our lesson horses are permanent family members, which allows students the opportunity to become deeply attached, knowing the horse will always be here at NHEC. Through inner work and understanding your horse as your partner, our lesson program provides an experience unlike most stables. Whether working with NHEC horses or privately owned client horses, Sabrina motivates her students to become more aware, more relaxed, and more confident in their horsemanship journey.
