Equine Training

Learn your horses language and have a more satisfying experience

90 days training

Includes: Halter, leading, and lunging training. I start horses for all disciplines, and they learn to stand quietly for the farrier and the vet. De-sensitizing to different environments and riding equipment is a key technique. They are trained to cooperatively trailer load, we take trailer field trips with a buddy and eventually alone. They are acclimated to crowds of people, activity, other horses and so forth by spending some mornings at local schooling shows – we start in the warm up ring and sometimes show. We spend time on the trail with dogs, cattle, large groups of horses, opening and closing gates, crossing water and bridges. We cover walk, trot and canter under saddle, with training up to second level dressage. We work on free jumping through a chute, training your horse think for him/herself and to jump an obstacle. Photographs and video will be taken of your horse’s progress. Of course, the program is customizable and variable according to the owner’s requirements, the horse’s age, needs and personality.
