Balloons, bull whips, and guns. We will get your horse accustomed to noises and help prepare them for the unexpected. This type of exposure is a great way to get your horse prepared for parades, hunting, and performance events.
The most important part of your horse’s life is getting the “right” start. A strong foundation will last a lifetime and we believe that setting your green and inexperienced horse up for success begins here. They will learn the basics of becoming well-mannered and accepting the saddle and bridle and being started under saddle. As they progress, they will become handier in their movements and a more supple and willing partner for you. Your horse must be at least 2 years old and a minimum of 14hh before riding will begin. Colt starting will require a 3 month (75 hour) minimum.
Do you have a younger horse that isn’t quite ready for riding? We will help them learn ground manners and riding preparation. Extensive exposure to leading, tying, trailer loading, feet handling, and more will prepare your young horse for a successful future. To enroll your young horse in this development program, they must be at least 6 months old.
