Our horse training programs specializes in highly individualized care programs designed for each horse's needs. No horse is pushed through a program just to get the job done. Horses leaving our training program are confident, fit, healthy, and relaxed about the work.
John utilizes a pressure and release method of training to achieve conditioned muscle memory of the horse. From the unbroke, to the finished horse ready for events, let John help you get your horse there! Due to scheduling, your horse will come into training for one week at a time. Further training will be scheduled after the end of the week.
