Your partner in Training

At Equinest, our philosophy of training centers around creating a harmonious partnership between horse and rider, built on trust, respect, and clear communication. We believe in a balanced approach that encompasses the horse's physical and mental well-being, promoting a positive and progressive training experience. Our philosophy guides our trainers in developing the horse's skills while prioritizing their overall welfare.
We recognize that trust is the foundation of any successful training journey. Our trainers focus on establishing a trusting relationship with the horse, emphasizing patience, empathy, and understanding. By taking the time to build trust, we create a safe and supportive environment where the horse can confidently express themselves and engage in the training process.

The process

1. Intake
The training process begins with the intake stage, where our trainers take the time to understand the horse's background, temperament, and any previous training they may have had. We conduct a thorough assessment, considering factors such as the horse's age, breed, physical condition,
2. Training
Once the horse is assessed, a customized training plan is created. With patient guidance and consistent effort, the horse's strengths improve, and weaknesses diminish, revealing its true potential under the skilled trainer's expertise.
3. Connecting
Once the training program is established, the horse's unique strengths and accomplishments are showcased in competitions. This helps to create exposure for the rider and the horse.
