We specialize in a personalized training program for you and your horse in a private, relaxed atmosphere.


Coraggio Equestrian is the premier Hunter/Jumper barn choice whether you are looking for a place to enjoy your horse or to excel in the show ring. Our goal is to provide a complete, personalized training and care program for you and your horse in a private, relaxed atmosphere. We are situated in the beautiful hill country of Southwest Austin, just a short drive from downtown. 


Owner/trainer Paige Barnett and trainers Cathy Coleman and Amy Gangstad bring a wide variety of experience and teaching styles to their horseback riding lessons. As your needs and skills change, our customized training plan will change with you, ensuring that you and your horse are always advancing. Whether you are looking to be competitive on the A show circuit or better enjoy your time in the saddle, Coraggio Equestrian will help you achieve your horseback riding goals. We understand that choosing a home for your horse is not a decision made lightly, and invite you to explore our facilities in person—please contact Paige to set up a tour.

Coraggio features two boarding options, ensuring a perfect fit for you and your horse's needs. With a lighted 250x150 arena, a 60 foot covered round pen, and over 100 acres of shaded trails, your horse will receive the best care in a well-maintained and safe environment where the caregiver lives on site.


At Coraggio, we believe that a training program must be created to fit each individual horse and rider, not the other way around. You and your horse will always receive personalized attention in your horseback riding lessons from our instructors with over 50 years of combined experience.
