Crystal's Equine Etiquette is held at Buck Lake Stables in Watertown, just outside of St Bonifacius on 80 sprawling acres! Escape the hustle and bustle of the world and reset while you enjoy these magical creatures.

Whether you're new to horses, wanting to improve your riding, or need help with your own horse, Crystal can help. She brings her vast knowledge of both horses and Reiki to each lesson and training session to create a well rounded approach to horses. 

Lessons incorporate Dressage, jumping, equitation and trail riding along with mindfulness and horsemanship. Her goal is to create a well balanced rider with a strong foundation that can take the horse and rider anywhere. Lessons are great for riders ages 4 - 99! (We currently have a max weight of 175 for the comfort of our horses at this time)

Aside from lessons, classes are also taught out of the barn. Homeschool classes are available as well as many horse ownership classes, equine fundamental classes, horse camp and more. Private classes are also available for booking for Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Birthday Parties and more. 


Interested in training, lessons or Reiki for your horse at home? Crystal travels nearby to work with you to help problem solve behavioral issues, work with foals, tune-ups and more. Reiki can help with behavioral issues, loss of a horse, change of home, and injury.

At the risk of sounding incredibly mushy gushy, I just wanted to share that I truly loved every single thing about yesterday, and I am eternally grateful that I chose you.. You have such a kind manner, an incredible patience with the littles, and a true love for and dedication to what you’re teaching, which is evident at every turn! You completely captivated both Adaline and Ashton yesterday, and I was constantly in awe with the way you made sure they felt heard and understood, just by answering  each and every question, commenting on each and every remark, and saving space for them to speak up. Plus, I love how your teaching method includes mindfulness and other alternative healing modalities, which completely aligns with our philosophy of living.


Thank you so much for your time yesterday! It far exceeded my expectations, and we can’t wait to continue working with you.
