It depends upon the individual horse and what point they are at in their training. We usually have horses in training for 3 to 9 months. The point at which a horse can be tried will depend upon the experience level of the applicant. In general, the horses that join our program are either un-started or are still green under saddle. We try to make sure a horse can walk/trot/canter in the ring and has some experience on the trail before advertising them for adoption. Most will still be considered ‘green broke’ and will need an experienced rider or rider working closely with a trainer. It is unusual that we have rescues suitable for beginner riders. Our goal is to provide a thorough evaluation and training foundation for each horse, with the understanding that most will need continued training to progress in their careers.
