Training Your Horse

Our Approach

Horses are magical creatures and deserve a great start to their careers or partnerships, whether pleasure, competing, or therapy animals. We specialize in training the well-rounded equine in all disciplines from the ground up.

Our training program includes round pen lessons and basics for the young horse in a safe and violence-free method both  on ground and in the saddle. Then we move on to strength work and trust. We ask the equine to understand balance in seat work, jumping, cross country, dressage, pleasure, hunting, and trail riding, as appropriate.

Our goals are to:

  • Train your horse so you and others can ride it safely, effectively, and confidently.
  • To ready your horse for competitions.

Training Levels

Trail Riding - Recreation
Hunter - Local
Dressage - Beginner to Prix St. Georges
Eventing - Up to training
Jumping - Up to 3'6"

Rates

We custom tailor the training of each horse to fit the horse’s needs, your needs, and your budget. Therefore, rates vary, so please contact us for more information.

Success Story

In 2013 Terri started training Idonis VZ, who was less than 6 months old. She began with ground training, and when Idonis was old enough to be ridden, she expanded his training. When he was ready, Terri and Idonis’s owner Amy Schull began taking him to competitions, where he excelled. In 2016, he placed #1 in the USDF Materiale and DSHB (Dressage Horse Sport Breeding) for KWPN-NA 3 year old Dutch colts and geldings, and was 7th in the nation for all colts and geldings. Congratulations, Terri and Amy!
