The Training Process
Every horse you see on our website has received a comprehensive and unique schooling which we call ‘Foundation Training’.
Most horses no longer benefit from a proper start in their ridden life, partly because we live in a time-starved society which seeks a readymade solution and instant results. There are no short cuts to producing horses; they simply need old-fashioned nagging. Please refer to Horse and Hound 16th November 2006, entitled “Where have all the young horse trainers gone”?
We have dedicated our lives to gain the knowledge and experience needed to work closely and thoroughly with a wide range of horses of differing abilities.
After many years competing and teaching we have chosen to work with cobs because we feel they have been overlooked and undervalued for their wonderful temperaments and all round versatility for a variety of disciplines.
Horses do not always achieve their full potential, but each and every one can take part in what we term “Foundation Training” and all our horses do. Only then can they become a Safe Cob.
We believe many of you are interested in knowing more about this specialised method of teaching horses. We would like to outline the process for you below. We hope you enjoy reading it and learn more about what we do.
Firstly we select the raw material. We try to identify those horses that haven’t been spoiled by human error. We reject those who have established behavioural problems either in the box or under saddle.
All horses are different and are individuals, so their training is geared to their particular needs and it starts in the stable.
