customize training programs to suit both the owner and the horse’s needs,
along with the owner's budget. We offer training packages from one week to
months. We ask that horses are current on shots, vaccinations, worming
and hoof care. Horses do not need to be shod because we have mostly sandy
footing. Included in the training package is training and either grass or
alfalfa hay. Horses are kept with a maximum of three other training horses
of the same sex in wooded pastures ranging from one to two acres. They are
fed twice a day and have access to an automatic water system at the top of a
slight hill- this helps with self-conditioning every time they go to get a
drink of water and burning off any excess energy.

owners in any

a raised level of awareness to create a respectful and rewarding partnership
with each other.
