Training Apprenticeship Program

Training Apprenticeship Program

This program is designed for anyone who wants to learn to train, ride and show/compete horses. We use a blend of Natural and Traditional training methods. We start with the basic groundwork and go through to a finished competition horse. Under the guidance of a professional trainer you learn to train train, ride and show/compete horses. 

The program is broken down into Class Segments. In each class segment you specialize in learning one discipline of training. You will meet once a week with a professional trainer and learn step by step training methods.  Then between lessons you practice with the training and schooling horses. Segments are self-paced to match your ability and schedule.  A segment is completed when you have competed successfully in your chosen discipline. 

Students who have successfully completed a class segment are then given priority when we hire for trainers and instructors.


Available class segments are:

  • Western Pleasure
  • Western Reining
  • Hunter Seat Flat
  • Hunter/Jumper
  • Dressage Training Level
  • Dressage 1st Level
  • Dressage 2nd Level
  • Dressage 3rd Level
