The Stables at South Molton - Horse Training

We believe training should be fun for both the trainer and the horse. Using principles of natural horsemanship, our own experiences, and creativity we incorporate many tools and methods of communication into our everyday training.  We strongly believe there are no good shortcuts to training a safe, reliable horse.

We begin training each horse committed to the time it will take to achieve our goals.  We focus a great deal of time and energy in all phases of our training program on developing the horse's mind. For we believe that no matter what the rider's goals are in owning a horse, the rider's experience is always enhanced when the horse is able to maintain a positive attitude in the company of humans.Horse Training Methodolog

There are three key elements in our training methodology at South Molton:

  • Gentling the horses and developing trust
  • Teaching tangible skills essential for their use as a pleasure horse
  • Developing desirable habits and transferable training exercises

  • Keys to success with horses

    What you really need to know about equine prospects

    When I was first introduced to the horse business, one of the most perplexing elements of the business was this term banded about so freely: "prospect". The best way to define what a legitimate prospect is: a horse with the right conformation, breeding and temperament for the targeted discipline or desired use by the owner, sadly it is too often used to categorize every foal that is born alive; legitimate or not. Developing a sound strategy when looking to purchase a prospect will help guard against making serious errors in judgment.
