Training & Services
Woodland Farms provides an array of training programs that are suitable for our clients needs, as we are dedicated to finding a program that works best for each rider and horse.
Our full-training program is provided five days a week. It includes daily care, lessons, and professional rides. This typically entails three to four instructed lessons and one to two professional schooling rides each week. This program includes turnouts and lunges, maintenance grooming (i.e. mane pulling and show clipping), and standing for vet, chiropractic, and masseuse calls and visits.
The half-training program is a service that includes three days of any combination of lessons and/or professional rides. Turnouts, lunges, and maintenance grooming are not included in this program.
We offer a lay-up training service for horses that are recovering from injuries and/or are coming back into work. This service is provided five days a week and includes hand walking or walking under saddle (up to twenty minutes each day). Additionally, wrapping and icing of legs, distribution of any medication or special feeding needed for the horse at that time, standing for vet calls as necessary, and providing any other care indicated by the veterinarian are also provided under lay-up training. The owner will provide necessary wraps and medications.
**Lay-up training is offered to horses that cannot be ridden for more than three weeks due to an injury. Once the horse is able to walk-trot under saddle, full training rates will apply; this is due to the amount of time being spent riding while trying to get the horse into working condition.
Additional Services: (Some prices may vary, please see Chrissy for more details)
