Young Horse Education/Pre Saddle Training
The earlier a horse learns how to behave and deal with the human world, the happier and safer he or she will be and the more you will be able to enjoy your young horse. In our Pre-school youngsters can learn essential skills like leading, giving their feet, and the right balance of confidence and respect around humans and the human environment.
Young horses are just like kids: full of energy, full of ideas, they are curious and super learners. There are a lot of valuable skills they can learn before the age of 3 and before they are ridden. However, because they are super learners they can easily pick up bad habits which can quickly become dangerous if not addressed. We can help your youngster to become a confident horse around people and learn all the essential skills a horse needs to know to be your partner. We can also help you to establish clear rules and manners when you are with your horse for a happy and safe future together. Young horses can come to us for training for just a few weeks from the age of 18 months onwards.
These are our three Education Packages for your youngster:
Education Package 1
Haltering, leading, standing still for grooming, yielding to pressure, being touched everywhere, giving hooves, deworming
Education Package 2
Basic ground skills (Seven Games), tying, shower, vet prep, trailer loading
Education Package 3
Pre-saddle training, discovering the world: the forest, cars, obstacles
With Gabi your horse will learn these skills through play, enabling trust, confidence and respect to grow in your horse. Preserving your horse's curiosity and dignity throughout the training process is very important to her.
Getting things right from the beginning is better for the horse than trying to fix bad habits later. The earlier a horse learns how to behave and deal with the human world, the happier and safer he will be and the more you will be able to enjoy being with him
You will get support in making a program for your horse so that you can practice at home.
