Its not JUST a trail horse! Getting a horse safe for trail riding takes many hours and lots of exposure to different 'scary' horse eating objects. A lot of people are afraid to do this type of training for they don't understand or know how to start or read their horses body language, this is where I help. I have been doing extreme trail riding/training for 6 years now and have helped many horses become safe trail mounts, the first few being my own horses. So if your looking for a horse to be not only a great trail mount, but soft and supple in the bridle as well, then give my training a gander!
I do take in any breeds for training. The type of training I do is mainly 'beach' trails, putting miles on a horse and exposing them to all things 'scary' that may be encountered while on a trail ride. Horses are started out with basic ground work with Clinton Anderson methods so I can establish my relationship with each individual horse. The ultimate goal is to have a surefooted, safe, and confident trail mount. While on the trail we do work a lot on lateral flexion, side passing, and leg cues. So if you would like a well rounded confident trail partner that you would like started or finished, just give me a call.
**Due to the rising cost of hay and fuel costs, I have had to raise my cost of training as I do trailer the horses I have in training to the riverbed and beach to get the training they need. Thank you for understanding** Cost is $1000/mo and that includes feed. (Unless you have a large draft horse the cost will be $1200 to accommodate the cost of feed or you can bring your own extra hay here for the reg. cost of $1000) If you would like to see a copy of my training contract, please email me and I will send an attachment. ***I do accept Paypal as a method of payment monthly with a 3% paypal fee***

Raven came to me sept. 2012 as a 7yr old unbroke broodmare. She is the first friesian I've had the honor of working with and is a joy! Taller than what I am used to, she has been a great mare to work with and is a pleasure to ride! Goes to show any age horse can be trained to ride with the gentle touch of natural horsemanship and willingness to learn from their trainer!
Fin is a haflinger gelding brought to me with only a couple rides. He has become a great safe and savvy trail horse and his owner is very pleased with his progress of 60 days training with me.
Working Fin with the tarp and desensitizing him. The beach is where I do a lot of my training as there is lots of stimulous and it is safe and fun.
Scooter was a blast of a horse to work with, grade QH gelding. Needed miles and confidence building. Was not one to do well riding alone and a nervous boy, after 2 months with me he became a confidence leader of a horse and could ride with a group, alone, in the front, middle or back of a group.
Woden, haflinger gelding out on trail after 90 days of riding/ Trail training with me. My sister Crystal is riding him this day for the video. We had a pack of 6 dogs with us this day too!! And Woden could care less about them. Woden was harness broke but not saddle broke when he arrived here, and after 90 days he is a confident trail horse now. I'm going to miss hm when he leaves.
Coco was brought to me to be 'beach broke'. Her owner wanted her to be safe and fun to ride on the beach and in the ocean, as you can see....she is now after 2 months with me, a fantastic fun to ride 'beach broke horse'
This is a video of a few horses I have had for training in their first few visits to the beach. You can see the different reactions of each horse to the water.
Norman is a great little solid Haflinger gelding. He's been a joy to work with and did well with his beach training sessions.

Contact me if interested in this adorable gelding!
