Lessons

          Lessons at OCF - Our lessons are not just riding. For the less experienced rider they include learning how to properly groom your horse before and after your ride. Tacking up and untacking your horse. How to catch, halter, and lead your horse. You learn all of these things in addition to your time in the saddle. We do this to give every student the full horsemanship experience. There are also opportunities to help with barn chores, training and show prep for students who are interested. We want every student to become a well-rounded horse person. 
(Lesson fees are based on actual saddle time.)

Training Board:  

        Jen uses a tried and true approach to starting young horses. She spent many years learning the techniques used by Joe and Patty Forest of Horton's farm. She starts all horses with long lining. This teaches them to accept the bit and rein pressure. It also allows them time to become comfortable with their tack. During this process horses become familiar with voice commands, which helps as training progresses. Long lining also helps to establish a bit of stamina and work ethic. When the horse has accepted their tack and long lining Jen moves on to slowly backing them. This is done with the horse's comfort in mind. Jen never rushes these steps and lets the horse tell her when it is time to move forward. Once the horse has been successfully backed Jen slowly begins walking and trotting and moves forward from there.

        Jen believes that every horse has something to teach every rider, including her. As a trainer, she approaches each horse individually, learning what methods best achieve the mental and physical progression needed to help that horse attain his top level of athleticism.

         Jen has many years of experience with starting babies, continuing training that was previously started, showing and conditioning horses of all levels. If you are interested in getting your horse on the right track, give us a call.
