Equine Proper Beginnings
Educated. Responsive. Curious. Thoughtful. Willing. Soft. Engaged.
Here's the truth... we just want to have fun on horse-back. It's really that simple. We don't want to ride horses that rob the joy out of riding. Well, the only way to get there (in our opinion), is to teach them how to control their emotions and what their response should be to what we are asking. That said, we take training very seriously... because we want to have fun and we don't want to get hurt! So, from the smallest detail of standing quietly tied, to superb performance under saddle, to maintaining a calm, thoughtful mindset in stressful situations or environments, every aspect of horse-training is addressed. Our mission statement... no horse training holes! From the ground-up, our horses are encouraged to investigate, problem solve and engage. Through thoroughness of training and broad exposure to LOTS of stimuli and activities, our horses THINK and participate with the rider, becoming a true partner. On one of our finished horses, you can attend a show one day, trail ride the next, then sort out some cows! What fun and joy we can have on open minded, willing, educated horses!
Lots of pictures and videos below to showcase the true range of training and exposure our horses receive... enjoy!
