Our training philosophy is rooted in intrinsic motivation of the horse, requiring openness from the student to listen to the horse and instructor, paired with fundamentals for better biomechanics. We teach techniques of how to build a relationship with the horse based on trust, energetic connection and communication. In addition to riding, we utilize groundwork, in-hand, and liberty.
At Shannon Trails Equestrian Facility, our training program offers a positive horse-centered approach, that is patiently progressive while the horse learns, in a calm environment that allows for building a valuable foundation and connection, that will benefit your horse for a lifetime of learning and problem-solving skills!
For pro-rides and classes, choose from our staff of six adult team trainers, each with decades of experience, extensive resumes, and top character.
Full Training: 5x/week
