In addition - we always have quality horses available for purchase, through our elite breeding and training programs. We offer assistance in selling current mounts, purchasing new prospects or seasoned horses, and after sale service including tune ups, lessons, and training. For clients in our program, we offer special discounts on horses purchased through our barn that remain in our training and show program.
The lesson program is tailored specifically to a horse and riders needs, and is designed to help achieve their personal horsemanship and show goals. We focus on horse and rider as a pair, to develop a better relationship between them as a team. We do offer a select number of lessons on our horses, to be arranged on an individual basis. The lesson structure incorporates many different maneuvers, and exercises that build communication and strengthen the bond between horse and rider.
Beyond learning the basics and developing skills needed for safe, correct handling/riding of a horse, we also coach on a world show level. We offer "Show Coaching" to all clients with horses in training, as well as outside riders competing with their own horses (arranged on an individual basis). Over the years, we have coached numerous National and World Champion exhibitors in every event available. Having successfully judged as well as shown in these events for years, we are able to provide insight into what the judges are looking for and how to go about presenting your horse at its best. "Presentation is everything!" - we also provide guidance and advice in outfitting yourself and horse suitable to the show or competition level you would like to compete at.
