When it's time to back a horse, there are several factors to be taken into consideration. This usually takes around 6 weeks, depending on your horse.
Backing a horse of any age takes more work than people like to think. When we back a horse we want to make sure that he is safe enough for your riding ability, that he is desensitised to the things he may encounter in his life, that he is responsive so that he can do the job he is asked to do, and that he enjoys his work. Your horse has plenty of potential to learn and understand commands, and our techniques will lay the foundation for you to build upon. We combine your needs and wants with the natural attributes of your horse. We can usually do the backing process at your own yard or home. The only facilities we require are a stable and a lunge pen or schooling area.
