Claudia Peters (aka "Rolli")

I was a horse crazy kid. I loved being around horses, stables and rode whenever I could. Growing up in a midwest urban area, my parents drove me to the country whenever possible to be around horses. I participate in Gymkhanas, barrel racing, herding cattle and penning.

I just move to the Lazy J Ranch in Cave Creek, AZ

I became a foster parent for Star - a 8-month old bay filly


In addition, I’m an RN with 20+ years experience in orthopedic, medical surgical nursing and work with our equine veterinarian on calls. Also, I am member of American Paint Horse Association and Pinto Horse Association of America.

I received my CHA certification in Western Horsemanship and Trail Guide. I offer beginner riding lessons from ages five to fifty plus!

Learn to approach and catch your horse safely in a herd or out of a stall. Learn to groom, saddle and bridle the horse with confidence. Once in the saddle, you will learn basic riding skills that will teach you how to communicate with your horse using cues with your body.

My cowgirl name is "Rolli', it was coined by my students as a combination of my horses names, Dollar & Rudi.
