General Training Policy
Using Pirelli and natural horsemanship as part of daily handling, we are careful to go at the individual horses pace. They tell us when they are ready to move on to the next level, by adopting this method, your horse will be confident, brave and trusting. With a full obsticle course, barrel arena, round pen and miles of trails. The horses will have plenty of exposure throughout thier training.
Western riding plays a big part in our everyday work, all of our horses, jumpers and trail horses alike, are all given a break and trail ridden a couple of times a week. What a wonderful reward to walk down a shady trail and cool off in the water, We always trail ride all the horses western style, and we find that that all the horses are refreshed and ready to train the next day.
We have several good western trainers and riders.
We can teach a horse to neck rein and rope, expose them to cows and start them on the barrel pattern. We assign horses to team members according to the horses personality and needs. As the horses progress in their training, we watch them interact with other riders, making them obedient and willing, whoever is riding. All our riders and trainers have the same aim, to let the horse enjoy and look forward to its training session and produce a sensible, level headed and happy horse.
Training is charged per week, this works out to be more cost effective if your horse does not need the usual 30 days. Perhaps just a tune up or work on a specific problem which would not require a full 30 days. Cost of Training is $125 per week. This includes board, hay, training and care .Owners are required to bring the horses usual feed.

Riding in large groups and having a day out is also an important part of the horses education

We teach horses to rope safely as well as work cows
Our team often take the horses in training for a day out to the local Western show center. This is an invaluable session, going out in a trailer, working (and having fun!) then coming home. This teaches them not to get stressed by travel and also exposes them to yet more enviroments.
