We have seen everything and know how horses tick, inexperienced or troublesome horses thrive in our busy yard and always come to enjoy their work in the open, laid back enviroment of the working station in between well structured schooling sessions.
Our general philosophy is back to basics, nothing fancy just repetition of those six little no-brainers that make up the training scale Relaxation, Rhythm, Contact, Impulsion, Straightness and collection. The first three Relaxation, Rhythm and Contact are the first we focus on, creating a horse in a good frame of mind who is working softly and evenly into the contact. Once he is and only when he is comfortable in this state we build on it with the development of Impulsion and Straightness, Straightness comes from impulsion and both are achieved by making the horse use his hind quarters properly. It can take time for the horse to come on in this phase of his training especially if he is young and weak, however patience and consistency always pays of. Lastly collection, This is essentially the establishment of the carrying power of the horses hind leg, bringing him up in front and working from behind.
Rates vary depending on how much and what kind of work your horse requires.
Flat Fee for general schooling- $200 per week
Grazing is $50 per week
Problem horses or horses requiring conditioning- $300 per week
