Codie Smith is the owner, trainer, and manager at Rocking S Ranch.
It is a family-run business with both her kids, Ethan and Emma, both playing major roles in running the day-to-day on the Ranch.

Our Services


We are devoted to the love of riding. Our expertise is in starting a new rider and getting a scared rider to feel comfortable.


We run weekly summer day camps here on the ranch for people with or without any riding experience.


Come and join us while we make your horse part of our family. Enjoy all the activities at our upstate stable while your horse makes it their home.


We help bring out the best in each horse with specific exercising and training protocols along with modern-day technologies to achieve optimum results.

Our happy clients

Codie is absolutely amazing with horses and people. She does and fantastic job training them. She trained several horses for me over the past 15 years and every one of them became excellent trail horses.

My daughter has been riding with Codie for a handful of years now and we couldn't be happier with the experience she has gotten! Codie is all about teaching the process and letting the kids learn!
