One of the most important stages of a horse’s life is when they are being broken in. It is important to get the horse understanding what they are being asked to do and educating them by teaching them in the right way from day one. Starting with lunging and long reining it is important that your horse gets a good mouth and trust in their rider from the start. Moving along to getting them ready to progress to starting faster work and cantering upsides on a gallop and ready to move forward to their trainer.
Each horse is an individual and as such can take a varying amount of time to get ready, some may be returning after injury and trainers might not have the space in their yard until the horse has progressed to a certain level of fitness. We tailor each horses programme to suit their needs. Event rider and showjumper Sue Shortt works with horses at varying levels of flat work to get them moving well and giving them a strong topline. We also include hill work, schooling and getting them cantering steady on the gallop. Ready to progress to faster work.
