Our project program involves intentionally procuring or shopping for horses or ponies within a certain budget, age range, and with specific conformational and personality characteristics. Most of the projects come from loving homes but are unsuited for their current jobs or for their current owners due to behavioral issues.
After obtaining a new project horse or pony, we spend time figuring out its strengths and weaknesses before mapping out a plan and schedule for their retraining and future sale. Most projects are in training for about 9-12 months before being sold. During that time period, they're exposed to as many things as possible, including trail riding, jumping, showing, riding in groups, performing in lessons, lunging, and learning proper groundwork. If necessary, they're also brought up-to-date on all of their veterinary, dental, chiro, and farrier work. We usually aim to have 2-3 projects in our program at any given time.
Projects are both ridden and shown by the students in our lesson and training program, giving unique opportunities to students outside of their own personal horses. In addition, we aim to provide our projects with the skills and experience that will help guarantee a good home for life.
Opportunities for investment and ownership are also available to bring on additional projects for interested parties!
