"Helping People Understand Horses"
We are now able to take in training horses in our new facility in Grafton, WI. From starting a horse under saddle to preparing them for competition,we have packages to suit your needs.
For the Private Owner
We offer monthly training rates that include weekly lessons for the owner. We feel that it is essential to the horses future to teach the owner as well as the horse. If you are from out of state we can still train your horse and then once you bring him home we can do a clinic at your farm and instruct you in the finer points of your horses handling. We may also be able to video tape a training session for you to watch, to help you gain a better understanding of what we do.
For the Breeder
We offer monthly training rates that will prepare and condition your horse for competition, or breed inspections. We are available for an additional fee to; sell your horse, compete on your horse, or present your horse for inspection. Contact us for details.
For the Competitor
We offer monthly training programs that will fine tune your performance horse for its up coming competitions. We require the competitor to take instruction from us during the training process. This ensures that they gain the understanding required for success.
