Fees are paid in advance at the beginning of each month or on the date you brought your horse.
Most horses requiring ground and under saddle training will require 90-120 days,  provided they are not suffering from any deep or extreme behavioral issues. It always takes less time to shape rather than modify a behavior.
Each week you'll receive a call about your horse's progress and at the end of each month you are provided with a video tape of your horse in training. This can be used as a refresher and a how-to for you.

Hourly lessons are available at $60 per hour for private lessons. Group lessons at $40. Or 14 lessons at $30. Per hour paid in advance for $420.

A 30 day notice is required on all boarding and training. All advance payments to reserve a stall/board or training spot are non-refundable since we save a spot for you and any last minut cancellation creates an opening which we may not be able to fill in time. Thank you for your understanding.
