Teaching the horse TRUST and CONFIDENCE, increasing COMMUNICATION and gaining control of the horses' FEET and encouraging SOFTNESS and LIGHTNESS is for all hobbies and disciplines!
Our mission is to create happy, easy-going, well-rounded and SAFE horses! All sale and training horses will gain experience in many different areas. We find that the more horses are exposed to, the more relaxed and confident they become. Horses that are cloistered, "bubble wrapped" and never get a chance to see the world or have an opportunity to really learn and be challenged, can be spooky, unreliable, unhappy and even dangerous. Pair that horse with a timid or inexperienced rider and you can imagine the potential for disaster. Horses are prey animals and are hard-wired to flee. We spend a lot of time training the horses to let go of their prey instinct and trust us as their leader. Over protecting a horse and avoiding situations that are scary or uncomfortable to him is not the way to make a safe horse. Teaching him how to THINK, LEARN and TRUST is how he will grow into a superb athlete, partner, and friend!
Some Things We Like To Accomplish:
This diverse training and experience makes for a well-rounded solid horse that will be ready to learn and excel in whatever discipline you choose. Trail rides and working cattle can only improve a dressage horse, just like basic dressage will make a trail mount more of a pleasure to ride.
Training Board $1350/month
This includes regular board plus 15-20 hours of training sessions per month, on the ground, in the saddle and trailering off the property to the trails at Fair Hill. The owner is encouraged to come out and watch and learn as I want you to be able to get on your horse so you can continue the journey when my training ends.
