Stage 2 – The Backing Process (non-ridden)

To develop a physically and emotionally well-balanced horse for any discipline we believe it starts with the groundwork. We will take your baby and educate him or her through our initial stages of (if necessary) general ground manners, such as recommended in our weanling to 2 year old process. Once these traits are confident, we would move into our 4 non-ridden stages of training

  • Cavesson work
  • Lunging including cavelletti
  • Education of the Mouth
  • In Hand work

By setting the horses up this way at a young age we commence the development of their symmetry, strength, co-ordination and confidence.
