Training Board: How it Works
Together with the owner, we identify a list of "problem areas" to address during training.  Common reasons to consult a professional include:

  • Starting under saddle
  • Routine training for the young or novice horse
  • Tune-ups for mature horses who haven't been ridden recently
  • Problem Behavior:  refusal to load, pushy or aggressive behavior, difficulty standing for routine farrier or vet work, hyperactive personality, etc
  • Summer school for ponies:  Sometimes a month of disciplined riding is all your family pony needs to be an excellent and safe mount for your child.

 Through a combination of at-liberty round pen work, in-hand lunging, and riding in our outdoor arena and across miles of private trails, your horse will have the opportunity to become a willing, respectful partner both in-hand and under-saddle. 

While in residence at Butterfield Farm, your horse will have the choice of run-in shed, turnout on pasture with my horses, or a private stall and dry-lot paddock with full board care.

This private training program is currently only available to Liselle's active farrier clients. The minimum training duration is one month.
