Seven Hills Training offers full-service horse training, including remedial training and young horse development.
We offer free consultations and evaluations before training begins, so that we can gather information, evaluate the horse's needs, and establish training goals. Contact us for an appointment.
Young horse development
Whether you are starting a dressage prospect, a jumper, or a trail horse, the goals do not change. All horses need to be calm, thinking, responsive, and happy in their work. And they all need to become relaxed, balanced and strong in their bodies, so that they have many years of health and soundness ahead.
Young horses are given a solid foundation, building skills such as forward movement, straightness, responsiveness, and strong, supple muscle development. We produce young horses that are relaxed, confident, and ready to excel in any discipline.
Remedial or 'problem' horses
Seven Hills Training has extensive experience in remedial training and restarting, including the rehabilitation of many 'problem' horses who did not fair well in other training programs.
When restarting the remedial horse, we pay special attention to addressing any emotional tension, communication issues, and physical discomfort. A very high percentage of 'problem horses' are in physical pain of some sort, and we have a wonderful network of equine and veterinary professionals who can provide various therapies such as chiropractics, massage, and acupuncture, to rebalance these horses physically and emotionally.
