Training is offered for all clients. Each training program is specifically tailored to you and your horse. All training rides are done by head trainer Nicole.
Each riding session is approached with a specific goal in mind. Whether it is to achieve a quiet and relaxed trot for the greener horse or tackling a more complex gymnastic combination for the seasoned competitor all horses are trained in a relaxed, yet demanding fashion that will accomplish the best results. Horses are never "roughed up" or "man-handled" to achieve goals. They are taught to be mindful of their human counterparts with a firm yet forgiving hand that result in a respectful, pleasant horse.
Experience with young and unbroken horses, stallions (at your property only), hunter/jumpers, lower level dressage, and western pleasure.
