Horses in Training

I resive horses in training for shorter or longer periods.

Considering the need, the focus of the training can be:

  • Groundwork
  • Longing
  • Breaking in – & the education of the horse under rider
  • Reschooling
  • Retraining of ‘problemhorses’
  • Rehabilitation of horses after injurys

Before a horse arrives in training, it is important that expactations and goals for the training periode is reconciled between the owner I, so that you as the owner and I as the trainer, agrees on the training course.
We will go through the horses background (physically and mentally), the reason why the horse is send in training, the owners expectations for the training, and for how long the horse will be in training.

A contract will be made.

When the horse comes.                  

When the horse arrives at the stable, I use the first week on getting to know the horse, and the horse me. I find out what kind of personallity the horse has, and from there I find out what structure the training is best for this horse. I go through the different aids, and find out what the horse understands and how well he learns new things.

In this week i also find out what the needs of the horse is, and if the owner and I need to make some changes in the presupposed training course. If the owners expectations exseed the horses abillities for the training period, the owner can take back the horse in this week.

How i train:

It is important to me, when i train the horses, that i make sure that the horses has calm and pleasant surroundings and that I have a pleasant and adapted approach to the individual horse.

Horses (and everyone) can learn and understand new things best, when introdused in structured, calm and positive surroundings.

 

The way i approach and traing the individual horses can be very different, depending on the horses needs.

I structure every training depending on what physical abillities the horse has, and what mental capacity he has. I will never ask the horse to do something that he does not have the abillities to do. And in every lesson, I make sure that the horse gets success in the exercises I will ask.

The conditions on the farm.

(For mares and geldings)

As owner, you can choose if you want your horse stand singel in his own paddock or if you want your horse to be in the field with the other horses on the farm (only if the horse is barefoot).

The owner can also choose if you want to have your horse housed in ore open stable with the other horses there (only if the horse is barefoot).

You can also choose to have your horse in a box (at night) and on the big field at day, with the other horses (only if barefoot).

All our boxes has their own paddocks, so the horses can move arround.

If you want your horse to stand alone, your horse will get his own paddock.

The horses are fed as naturally as posible. that means that the majority is hay, haylage and straw. The crip feed they get is Nordic Horse products, thereof also vitamins and minerals.

*Stallions in training*: I also have stallions in training provided that the horse functions in an environment with dayli activity (dosen’t get stressed), as well can be handled when the mares in the stable is in heat.
– The stallions in training stand alone in the paddock.
