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 $200 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 raining 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. English or Western training available!
Stallions are also welcome if they are good with geldings & aren't aggressive.
Pasture Board - $175month
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 - $400/month
It is preferred that the horse(s) catch somewhat, but it is not a necessity. Leading & tying can be worked on as well. 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. During the first week, I will assess the horse, & if I strongly believe that the safety risk to myself is too high, I will let the owners know, & will refund their money.
Total including board - $550 including GST

Training Overview --
Refresher/Miles - groundwork is gone over to go over manners. I would like to see the owner/rider to ride the horses quickly so I can see where the horse is at & to discuss what you would like done.
Colt Starting - Horses start off in the round pen to be assessed, & they will be worked at the pace that they can handle. Horses will be sacked out (tarps, gym balls etc.), lunged, long-lined, saddled, bridled, & mounted. Horses will be worked at a walk/trot/canter under saddle, once they are ready, I refuse to rush this because I've seen it cause man issues later. Work will be done in an outdoor arena, and once I feel they are ready, moved out to the trails.
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.
