Ponyboy Curtis doing great holding his line
Horses are introduced to various obstacles in order to produce a horse who can think for itself and react appropriately. Learning to move forward from leg contact, maintaining straightness to the fence and keeping the lines of communication clear and direct will build a horse’s confidence. It’s all about building a safe and dependable teammate.

Schooling trips are part of the training package. So much responsibility is put on young horses to cope with the pressures of competition. Taking them off the farm and placing them in a show atmosphere as ‘non-compete’ horses, allows them to soak it all in. Loading up on the rig, traveling to strange places with new sights, sounds and smells can be overwhelming. But in time with steady positive progress, when the time comes to compete, the transition into the show ring will be a positive experience.

The ‘basics’ that horses are taught, are to move forward from the leg aids and understand obstacle questions from small ditches, water, banks up and banks down and how to gallop on uneven terrain. Eventually, as the questions grow bigger for the horse, it’s going to be the former correct training that the horse will rely on to successfully get through the finish.

The goal in placing horses in training, is to give them and owners the best opportunity to succeed. It can be a wise investment that will last a lifetime, because it really is about the ‘horse’, isn’t it?
