Average Joe Horse Training
-includes board, feed, and one body work session.
-Farrier and vet services are not included
-90 day minimum
1st 30 days: Basic ground work; Establish a relationship with the horse, build trust and pecking order, begin riding (the time and forward progress varies with each individual).
2nd 30 days: Continue riding, building trust and willingness. Work on refining gaits and maneuverability. I am a stickler for full body riding. Using leg, seat and hands are a must.
3rd 30 days: Continue gate refinement; take outside on trails and/or to strange places, so horse can experience a different environment with me and then with their person. This helps get them ready for travel to different places and handle the situations calmly and with thought.
I also like to give at least 4 lessons (included in fee) with the horse and rider so they can learn how to communicate with each other on a functional level.
Basic Horsemanship Lessons: $40
*I also offer Body work for the horses, using the VOM, and Samota Visceral Release.
