We have two full-size dressage arenas: one lighted, all-weather outdoor and another lighted, covered arena. While our focus is dressage, we also offer amenities for the serious eventer, including a 130 x 200 ft. lighted, all-weather outdoor jump arena, a one-acre grass cross-country jump school, and a gallop track. Nowhere in West Houston can you find all these amenities in one place. To top it off, a full-time manager and experienced staff live on site to ensure your horse’s well-being.

Twinwood has two resident dressage trainers, both capable of taking you and your horse from green to Grand Prix. Both trainers have competition and training experience in Europe and the U.S., and both have an active and supportive group of riders showing with them.
