Partial Training

Partial training includes 3 training rides per week with the option to substitute a training ride with a lesson. We believe it’s important that owners are active in the training process, so they understand how their horses are taught and how to use their new knowledge. Partial training with full care board is $550 per month.

About Susan Hammond

Our Training Philosophy

Our training philosophy is simple – to create relaxed and willing horses that are happy to work and perform in whatever discipline, competition or activity you choose to do. Our goal is to ensure that the owner and the horse have a connection to ensure confidence and trust. It doesn’t do a rider any good to have a horse with “buttons” that they don’t know how to use. We want our clients to be active participants in the training process.
