I offer basic starting for young horses, and schooling rides for horses of any level.
For young/ green horses, I always start with ground work to establish a strong connection with the horse. My training moves at a fluid pace and the horse develops a strong, positive association with work. After a sufficient number of sessions on the ground (depending on the horse's experience), I will teach the horse under saddle until (s)he achieves the level of desired experience per the owner.
With seasoned horses, I offer schooling rides to keep the horse in shape and to provide a professional reminder of appropriate movement and behavior under saddle, and on the ground.
