I am located in Stony Plain, Alberta. I put time into horses that they need, start horses in the direction the need to go, and help horses that have "issues" and just need taming and handling done. My price range is reasonable and workable, from $225 to $500. GST is included and board is $175/month additional.
Each horse works/responds at different paces, meaning 30 days might only be 10 rides for one horse, but may be 25 rides for another horse. I recommend a minimum of 60 days to put a decent start on your horse. How much training you would like to have put on your horse depends on your horse, budget, & how much maintenance training you're willing to do with your horse.
Stallions are also welcome if they are good with geldings & aren't aggressive, soon they will all be welcome, just penned separate from geldings.
Pasture Board - $175/month
Several small work pens, outdoor arena, gender based groups, trailer storage, minutes away from Chickakoo, top quality hay, friendly environment, tack storage, emergency stalls, high quality fencing. Owners have their own horses & live on site. Contract must be signed.
Miles/Refreshers/Rescues - $450/month
Horses MUST catch as we may have to cross a yard where other people might be, leading & tying can be worked on. Rescue horses require proof, such as:
EID (Equine ID) from auction
Signed auction or adoption papers
All known issues of the rescue horse must be disclosed before I agree to train, for my safety, and all others on the premises. During the first week, I will assess the horse, & if I strongly believe that the safety risk to myself or others is too high, I will let the owners know, & will refund their money.
Total including board - $625 including GST
Colt Starting - $500/month
Horse must somewhat catch. Leading & tying can be worked on though.
Total including board - $675 including GST
Groundwork - $225/month

All horses are exposed to many things, from traffic, dogs and kids, to trucks, sleighs, wagons, and tractors. I also do activities with the horse so they need to pay attention to what is going on around them and under their hooves, and still listen to what I am asking.
