I believe that a good training foundation can be used in ANY discipline. If a horse is soft and supple in both body and mind, he can be trained to do just about anything.
My training method is not event, breed, or discipline specific. My goals are to create safe, willing horses as well as educate people on proper horsemanship. I would love to help you and your horse accomplish even the tallest of dreams. So whether your goal are to show at the highest levels of competition or have a bombproof trail horse, my method is tried and tested to help you and your horse succeed.Techniques are chosen for safety, low stress, and efficiency. Every horse is different and learns a different way, different amount of time, and no two horses are the same. The key is to have the patience and persistence to help the horse understand and learn what your asking them to do.
Finding each horse's natural talent is one of the most important factor's in success. Using a horse's natural way of moving, thinking, and learning, I can teach a horse what I am asking without fear. The first step is to create a solid foundation using fundamental groundwork. Groundwork will include "desensitizing" in which the horse gains confidence and learns to relax in stressful situations; as well as "sensitizing" where they learn to become soft and flexible, move their feet ,and follow a light feel from the halter and lead. Everything the horse learns on the ground will properly prepare them to be safe and respectful under saddle.
Once in the saddle I use refinement of basic groundwork to teach the horse to be responsive to seat, leg and rein cues while maintaining the horses own balance. The horse will learn to softly bend and move different parts of their body separate from the rest; including the poll, front and hind quarters, ribcage and feet. These are all very important in teaching the horse to perform any maneuver desired whether basic or advanced.
Riding Draft Horse Training & Trail Horse Training
I have been training and showing horses professionally since 1996 in multiple disciplines; Western - English - Hunter - Halter. I now Specialize in Finishing the Ultimate Trail Horse, Riding Draft Horse, or Draft Cross. I train mostly out on the trails, as we have 130 acres of our own land to train on. Your draft will be exposed to bridges, creeks, go around brush piles, over fallen trees and through the mud, cross RR Tracks, atvs, tractors, cars, trucks, motorcycles, trains, fireworks, balloons, air horns, gun fire, roadway etc.. I will start/break a draft horse to ride but mostly only horses that are at least well-started under saddle will be accepted. I'd rather fix a problem and polish them in an area where you, their owner; may not have the skills, the confidence, the time, or the land to do so. To insure each horse gets the proper care, attention-to-detail, and quality training, availability is limited to a few horses per month due to the time it takes me daily to properly train the horse.
