Barb's Training Statement
I work individually with each horse and rider combination to help them understand each other better. My desire is to teach people how to build a relationship with their horse where they learn from each other and grow together. It is possible to communicate and successfully train the horse in a way they understand; without fear or intimidation but instead through a common sense, patient, and consistent program.
We build a trusting relationship where your horse learns to look to you for guidance; it is from there he will really "learn" what we want and not just be "reacting" to us.
We then incorporate the basic handling program adopted from Pat Wyse. This is the essential training foundation that we build on to train our horses to be willing partners for any type of riding we desire. It is a perfect program for creating an all-around horse capable of competing in multiple disciplines successfully. Our horses learn to be quiet, dependable, and capable in any situation. We can trust our horse will always listen to us fully and perform to his or her best ability.
