Horse Training/Horse Care

Overview

Horse Training
For people with young or un-started horses, horses with behavioral or physical issues, novice riders or for horses that are for sale, horse training can be a short-cut to success. Leave your horse with me for concentrated training

Horse training is a bridge between the owner and horse when safety issues or time become restrictive to progress. This type of training is an avenue for helping the horse understand its role in the partnership, break negative patterns or begin new, positive patterns in both mind and body.

Putting a horse in training does require some owner involvement for the training to have long-term success. Horse training only “bridges the gap” between a horse and owner or “over-prepares” a horse for a rider that is still learning. Long-term success requires the owner to reinforce the training received by the horse

Horse training fees are based on the horse being stabled in Palm City, Florida. The facilitites include a covered arena and more. If the horse cannot travel, then please refer to Clinics/Seminars, Camps or Video Coaching to gain personal help in your area. Check the Clinic Schedule to find out if any events are currently scheduled close to your location or visit Host a Clinic to arrange an event in your area.


Horse Care
Let us take care of your horse, whether you are simply vacationing or your horse requires temporary special-care. farm2Care includes from as basic as feeding, grooming and providing supplements, to handling, hand walking, essential exercise, rehabilitation and more. Care is available locally in Palm City, Florida only. If the horse is not local, then temporary board can be arranged in the Palm City area. Training in groundwork or riding can be added to the schedule of horse care if appropriate, but training is not necessary. The boarding facilitites include lush pastures, covered arena and more. All care is either performed by and/or supervised by me personally.


Student Assistance
Horse training or horse care time can be exclusive to Kirsten doing the hands on work or it can be combined with work done by an advanced student under Kirsten’s supervision. To accommodate people financially, both horse training and horse care are available with student assistance. With student assistance, the student acts as the owner by proxy doing the work that an owner would normally do between check-up lessons. Student assistance allows a maximum of change at a minimal expense without owner involvement. Discount rates for long-term training are also available if the horse is eligible as a lesson horse during its stay.

Quote Of The Day

In our highly competitive horse world today, we are too often prone to believe that ‘more is better.’ This has led to excesses and unsound and harmful practices that are not based on good movement and body-use principles
