Naturally Gaited Horse Training

Need your horse tuned up for an upcoming horse show, trail riding or to add further saddle training. You may desire to improve the horse's consistency, balance or speed in it's gaits. A basic foundation of ground training is built upon with further under saddle training to be sure the "trained" horse didn't have skipped initial foundation training.

Paso Fino Recreational Pleasure Training

Recreational trail riding is a favorite activity for relaxation and enjoyment for many naturally gaited horse owners today. Our SmoothRide4u training is structured towards recreational pleasure riding with a main emphasis on safety for the rider and ultimate owner enjoyment. Foundation training involves a horse to be properly introduced to sacking out techniques to avoid spookiness on the trail. Building trust with the horse involves gentle skills and consistent training cues is most important in training any horse.

Advanced training can involve teaching neck reining, side passing and cantering. Also, bridleless riding training may be available in the future for horses who would adapt well for this.
