Elegant (el·e·gant) ~ gracefully refined and dignified, graceful in form or movement, excellent, fine & superior.
Dance ~ to move rhythmically.
Horsemanship ~ the art, ability, skill, or manner of a horseman.
Isi Seiyr is the very highest form of all horsemanship and discipline. Encompassing the truth behind how horses learn. Overcoming the mental and physical demands of challenging ourselves to be the best. Exploring the strongest bond of trust between horse and master. Gaining the ability to better observe and interact in the world around us. Our school incorporates many disciplines and styles of riding including English & Western. We accept beginners through advanced students. All are welcome.
Throughout our lives we each decide our personal beliefs and values. Whether based on our own knowledge or our culture, we have lines that define us. Isi Seiyr is based on the principle that life, like a dance, is an ever changing and redefining process. Through our interaction with horses we believe it is possible to start on the path of becoming more aware of ourselves, our values, our horses and the world we live in. To drop all assumptions and see what truly is.

The Lone Star Swordplay Guild (LSG)
We are extremely excited and pleased to announce our partnership with the LSG! "The LSG offers organized instruction in the serious study and practice of historical European swordplay and close quarter combat of the 14th – 17th centuries. Founded in 2014, the Guild is a modern school of Italian swordsmanship and martial arts that seeks to be consistent with the methodology of the ancient European fencing schools by combining scholarship and research into the teachings of the historical Masters at Arms with the practical knowledge gained through solo drills, partnered exercises, fencing with specially-designed, blunt weapons and wrestling.
We do not train in a modern sport or theatrical display; techniques are taught in reference to how they were used in real combat. Therefore, the Guild practices with an absolute emphasis on safety, control, competence, and skill at arms."

Renee Ciampi , With instructor Kyli Jordan Ring ~ "I have been riding for nearly 20 years, and was taught different styles of riding in my previous equestrian experiences. I mostly work in the discipline of dressage and natural horsemanship. When I moved to Houston, I explored and tried out several stables and trainers in the area. I have found this experience to be the most positive. As a working professional, I primarily ride for enjoyment and physical fitness, and no longer have the time or energy to become involved with highly competitive trainers and stables. A month of trial rides with Kyli successfully turned into nearly a year's worth of lessons (with no intent of discontinuing my patronage, might I add). In that time frame I was able to achieve my lifelong goal of purchasing and training my first horse, (courtesy of their expertise). I feel the training methods they use are safe for both horse and rider, comfortable, and fun. The previous stable I attended required a dress code for the sake of appearances, but I shortly found myself suffering the effects of the heat in the summer due to this standard (on top of feeling self conscious when I should really be focused on the fun of going horseback riding). The atmosphere dramatically changed when I started training with Kyli. I no longer felt the pressure to conform to a superficial environmental standard, nor live up to the expectation of competitive performance. The cost of the lessons are very fair, and the training is quality. It is good to finally come to a place where riding is accessible. Both Kyli and Arien go out of their way to provide a high degree of service for their clientele. I definitely recommend them both, and I hope you will take advantage of what they have to offer through their horse training program."
