Right Lead Equestrian is located in the Shreveport / Bossier are of Louisiana. We offer beginner to advanced lessons for riders in Eventing, Dressage, Jumping, and Sidesaddle. We also offer exceptional boarding services for the pleasure or competitive horse.

Whether you ride for pleasure or to compete, Right Lead offers quality technical instruction, providing an excellent base of knowledge and skill for the novice rider, and experienced coaching and lessons for the veteran competitor.


Trainer, Michelle Barr, has more than 30 years experience riding, teaching, and showing. In addition to teaching and training, Michelle also offers judging and clinic services.

With a long and successful history training horses and riders in Baton Rouge, a wonderful opportunity to return to our roots means we have once again made the Shreveport area our home. We hope you will stop by to see a lesson in action, or come and talk with Michelle about your riding goals. All of our instruction and training methods follows our philosophy of providing the greatest care of the horse through knowledge, compassion, and sportsmanship.

In fact, it is the intention of the program to increase physical, mental, and social development of our students through a well-rounded base of knowledge and interaction with our horses or yours.
