Starting, Breaking In and Training
Giving your horse the right start under saddle is the most important aspect of his entire riding career. Blair uses gentle methods to introduce your horse to saddle, bridle and rider in a no stress, fear free environment. Owners are encouraged to visit and be involved in the process and are given a number of lessons prior to taking their horse home. Of course, the service does not finish there. Blair is readily contactable at any time to assist with any ongoing advice required, and lessons are available at a discounted rate for our starting and training clients. Most horses spend between 6-8 weeks being started under saddle. However as all horses are individuals in experience, personality and temperament, this can vary depending on horse and rider. Blair uses good, common sense horsemanship approach in all his work and you can read more about his horsemanship influences in his About and FAQ pages.
