Ground Work: The beginning steps for training your horse!

• Halter Training
We all have to start somewhere! We take horses with little to no human interaction and teach them to move alongside you on the ground. Basic ground skills include: catching the horse in the pasture, tieing / ground tieing, and having an understanding of direction: both forward and backward. By the end of this training, your horse will be relaxed and able to be worked with.

• Lunging
In this training, your horse will learn: rhythm, relaxation, balance, suppleness, straightness, and will work up to a collected frame. Beginner riders can take lessons and will be attached to the lunge line to teach balance, coordination and can begin the application of aids before riding free.

• Training to Stand for a Farrier
Your horse will learn to balance while maintaining relaxation. Because of our experience, we use the proper training simulation of a farrier.

• Trailer Loading
Loading and unloading of your horse on a trailer is a vital skill for your equine friend to have. Safety for you and your horse are the key goal with this type of training. Whether your horse is new to this or re-learning to enter and stand in a trailer, by the end of this training, your horse will be relaxed and ready to relocate.
