Training/Starting Under Saddle (Breaking In),
$2,800 + GST.
(As from the 1st November 2015 CJ Park no longer offer this service to outside clients)
Includes your horse being mouthed and long reined extensively before the riding process. Time will vary up with each individual... your horse is encouraged/rewarded in a harmonious way. Our techniques are based on common horse sense, a horse is never ‘broken’ as such or put in a demeaning situation. Our techniques use modern equipment and saddlery to teach the horse and encourage a natural forward gate with cadence and freedom to express themselves learning balance under a riders weight resulting in a happy, willing horse that ‘can’t wait’ for the next ride. The horse will be balanced and perform three basic gates, with correct canter leads, stopping and turning, with the use of seat aids ready for them to commence their saddle careers.
