Horse Training

Our Training Philosophy

At Black Horse Run, we realize that every horse is unique. By carefully learning your horse’s individual personality and abilities, we tailor each training session to meet your horse’s specific needs and help him reach his full potential.

In order to better communicate with your horse, we use natural training methods advocated by recognized horse trainers such as Lyons, Anderson, Roberts, and Parelli. Our goal is not to “break” your horse, but rather to channel his energy into an effective partnership with his rider. We emphasize a safe, comfortable training experience to create a better working relationship between you and your horse.

Areas of Training

We cover all aspects of basic, intermediate and advanced training, from starting young horses to refining experienced ones. Areas of training include:

  • Starting under saddle.
  • Basic ground work, including handling, commands, and manners.
  • Safe exposure to the challenges of trail riding, with its sights, sounds, obstacles, and surprises.
  • Basic to intermediate Western riding techniques.
  • Refining gaits (for gaited horses).
