Sharing the art and beauty of classical horsemanship

providing opportunities for excellence through horses

Our mission is to teach and share the art of classical horsemanship through performances, training programs, and tours to all, with special opportunities for at-risk populations such as veterans, under-resourced teens, and victims of human trafficking.

Tempus Renatus School of Classical Horsemanship (formerly Wright Tempo School of Equestrian Arts) is a small 501(c)(3) non-profit riding school currently located in Raeford, NC near the Carolina Horse Park but now expanding to a new location in Black Mountain, NC.

Exciting News!

We are in the process of expanding to Black Mountain, NC! Our new location is 10 minutes away from Lake Lure and Chimney Rock, 35 minutes from downtown Asheville, and 20 minutes from downtown Black Mountain. We are excited about what this expanded location will bring us. We are in need of support now more than ever, as we will be building new facilities. We have exciting new plans for a “green” facility that will have more room for audiences at our performances, training retreats, corporate retreats, and more. Please consider supporting us by adding us as a designated nonprofit while you shop on Amazon Smile, donating Hilton Honors points through PointWorthy, or sponsoring one of our new developments. Keep an eye on our social media pages as we post updates on this new development! Sign up below for our newsletter to learn about all of our latest updates first!

Project: Tenacious Acres

Tenacious Acres Restorative Agriculture is our land management project geared toward education in gardening, hydroponics, livestock management, and incorporating all these together in a holistic package that benefits the environment. We’ll be offering workshops and internships in the near future! In the meantime, come learn more at one of our farm tours!

Program: Pheonix Riders

The Phoenix Riders program is a unique program providing a chance for veterans, under-resourced teenagers, victims of human trafficking, and more to start their journey in riding horses. It is a “next step” to bridge the gap between equine-assisted therapy in the first stage and actually starting to ride and learn more about horse management.
