Riding horses is a wonderful
thing. Not every horse is suitable for any rider though. Lots
people don't understand that and end up with issues that can put them in
very unsafe situations.
We specialize in helping make sure that the horse and rider are suited for
each other. We will
help with specific issues or help with the all around horse.
It is hard to determine how long it will take for each horse without first
knowing what the problems
are and what the riders level of confidence is. Therefore, we like
to do an evaluation with the
horse and the rider and discuss the options from there. Many times
it is an easy fix and can be
done within 30 or 60 days. Other times it takes much longer.
Either way, we take each situation
individually by coming up with specific goals and a "game plan". Our
goal is not to keep your
horse here any longer than necessary.
We can take horses that have never been worked with or we can take the
ones that are older and
have issues. No horse is considered a lost cause - so don't worry.
In some cases it may turn out
that the horse and the rider aren't suited for the one another. That
doesn't mean that the horse is
bad or the rider is bad - it only means that it will either take lots of
work and dedication or it might
be best to find another horse more evenly "yolked" for the rider. We
can help you out in either
Our basic fee is $675/ month.
This includes 30 hours of training and all the feed, hay and care.
Before we get started in a training program we will also want to make sure
that the horse has had
recent dental floating and that their hooves are in good shape. The
horse must also be in good
"physical" shape as well. (No underweight horses will be accepted
into the training program). If
you aren't sure about all of that - we can have our dentist and farrier
look at them to make sure
there are no issues.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to call us! We are
always open to answering
