Horse starting - is done over 6 weeks. This timeframe may vary depending on your horse. If further time is required it will be discuss with the owner before going ahead
What to expect - Your horse is started under saddle and will flow through the transitions of walk, trot and canter. A back up will be introduced and will respond well to stopping.
Young horses need direction by the ridder so if you have not had a young green horse before we encourage you to book extra lessons with Pete once the starting process has been finalised. Pete will do a handover with the owner when you pickup your horse which is part of the process.
We dont like to push young horses with too much in there first 6 weeks of riding so your horses capabilities will be put first before the riders over egar expectations.
REMEMBER we have them for 6 weeks but they are ridden an average of an hour each day x 5 days a week = 30 hrs total in 6 weeks. (Consider: We send our children to school for 12 years so make sure your expectations are not unrealistic for your horse and trainer.)
Young horses are ridden 5 days a week. There maybe occassional factors like bad weather that may prevent some days.
Your horse will be started in a small roundpen progressing up to a larger round pen and if able onto the arena. Numbers and time do not allow us to ride every horse out. If this is something you are wanting you will need to speak with us to see if this option is available.
Photos and videos will be taken and posted on our Facebook page "Horses with Pete Webber" but please note this is an add on offered by Steph Webber and there is no particuler time or amount that she does.
Your fees include 2 feeds a day plus hay.
Please DO NOT send any feed or gear with your horse. They will have everything that they need.
If your horse requires a hoof trim you will be adivsed and charged seperately for the trim.
In the event of injury or illness vets fees are charged directly to the owner. Owners will need to liase with our local vet to ensure procedures can be done. Owners are the first call we make in the event of illness or injury (where possible).
Cost: $4200 + gst for 6 weeks
A $300 NONREFUNDABLE booking fee is required at the time you book your horse in. This is to hold your horses spot and will come off your balance which is due before we start your horse.
Re-educating timeframes depend on your horses problems and issues you are having. Ecah horse is different and respond differently.
Things to remember when consideering re-education:
- Even though your horse has been re-educated the problems may still occur if the owner hasn't learnt new ways to apporach things with thier horse.
- Re-educated horses can be costly to re-educate so we will have a discussion with you about your ability to sustain the new training and if the horse will be suitable to the owners level of savvy. We will also discuss how committed you the owner is to the process.
Re-educating problem horses can be very challenging for both the trainer and horse so being honest about the proplems you are having is the best approach.
The first 6 weeks is $4200 + gst. Costs and timeframes are discussed if further education is needed.
A $300 NONREUNDABLE deposit is required to secure your horses booking. Balance is due before we commence your horse.
Horse training fees will depend on the lenght of time your horse is with us for training.
