Private Training

Riffle Hitch, LLC is a boutique show jumping business that works with a limited and very selective number of clients.

Nicole Shahinian Simpson is hands-on with every aspect of both the riders and horses she chooses to work with. If you are interested in working with Nicki and the Riffle Hitch team, please send them a message via the contact page.
