Training Center Horses
Whether you’re looking for a horse for trail riding or competitive show jumping, you need to consider what type of horse you’re looking for. Horses that were bred and raised for the purpose of working with other horses will be more likely to have the temperament you’re looking for.
No matter which discipline you ride, your training center should have some horses that are versatile enough to be ridden in multiple ways.
The best way to find a versatile horse is to first narrow down your search to horses that are sound, calm, and willing. Make a list of horses that fit that description and then start researching each horse to see what type of rider they’re best suited for.
A hunter or jumper that can also be ridden in dressage or eventing is always a great asset.
Not just for the competition ring, but for the hunter/jumper ring as well, a horse that’s been trained at a local college or commercial center can be a fantastic addition to your barn. Whether it’s a former show or performance horse, or one trained for another purpose, these horses have had a lot of experience with humans, and can often be very willing to help out other horses that are new to the barn.
A cross-country or trail riding horse is often a good fit for riders who want to ride in the field and also compete in gymkhana events.
One of the main reasons people choose trail riding or cross-country riding is because they want to train their horse to do particular skills. While some riders choose to train their horse on the trail, others train their horse at a local training center. Regardless of where you train, one of the biggest challenges is getting your horse to do what you want without being aggressive towards other horses.
If you are a western rider, be sure to check out your training center’s western-style horses.
If you like the idea of a western riding horse but don’t want to deal with the responsibilities and costs of owning a horse, you might consider a horse at a training center. These horses are usually gentle and good-natured and well-trained and are great for beginners. You’ll learn to ride on a western saddle and, when you’re ready, you can purchase your own horse.
You might also want to look for a retired racehorse or a homebred horse that is talented in the show ring.
For a really affordable option, look for a retired racehorse at a training center. These horses have already been proven to have good bloodlines and are a good fit for a rider. Their trainers are experienced horsemen who can help you learn the basics of riding and caring for your new horse. You can find a training center near you at the American Horse Council website.
If you are a jumper rider, make sure to find a training center that has a variety of horses that can be ridden in flatwork and steeplechase.
You can get a good idea of how your horse will handle different types of jumps by riding horses at a training center. Different breeds of horses have different personalities, and you don’t want to jump a horse that isn’t well-suited to your goals.
Whatever your riding goals, your training center should be able to help you achieve them.
Whether you plan to compete in show jumping or dressage, your coach will tell you that you need to start working with a horse before you can really train. If you’re not ready to purchase a horse, a local training center can help you learn how to ride, care for, and work with a horse.
