Our Philosophy

A trainer is someone who can train ten horses out of ten. When horses are correcly trained from the time they are are weanlings, difficulties are very rare. For horses that have not benefited from a regular disciplined approach from the beginning it is always best to carefully and methodically fill in the missing pieces than to train "tricks". Short cuts and gimmics are not an option.

Buying or selling a horse can be a stressful and difficult experience, but there are concrete steps that can be taken to minimize the financial and emotional toll on both buyer and seller. We believe all conditions of a sale should be completely understood by buyer and seller, and these conditions disclosed in a carefully worded contract. This means in particular that buyer and seller know all of the details of a sale including the commissions that are paid to agents.
