Horse Training

 
  trail ridingIn our training program, our emphasis is about producing horses that are very well-rounded, that can excel in any discipline, and will enter new situations willingly.  All horses, regardless of training level, go through a refresher ground manners session and a ground working session to ensure the harse has satisfactory basic skills.  We believe horses should have excellent ground manners, which show respect for the handler, in all situations.  We start all horses in a western saddle, but we do work with most breeds and disciplines.

Our facility allows us to introduce the horses to a wide variety of situations.  In the arena we perform basic starting under saddle and desensitization to common objects, such as flapping raincoats and plastic bags.

Introduction to things such as poles, tarp crossing, bridge crossing, gate opening and closing, mailboxes, and much more typically also occur in the arena. 

 

 

 

We also have over 43 acres with two creeks, timber, scrub brush, and hay fields that contain an abundance of deer, wild turkeys, pheasant, quail, and other wildlife.  We utilize all of this area for more intensive training along with the over 15 miles of horse trails at Moraine View State Park located, only one-half mile from our property.
