Stone Creek Ranch offers a well-rounded training program for horses of any discipline. We teach horses to respect their handlers by giving the horses clearly defined boundaries that they can understand. We work to identify and eliminate causes of fear, anxiety, confusion, and pain which are the most common causes of misbehavior in horses. We put them on a physical fitness regimen meant to strengthen and balance their body which reduces the chance of lameness in their future. This includes proper diet, hoof and dental care, and exercise program to strengthen weak areas.
Things your horse will learn include:
Respect for people’s space
To move easily off rider’s seat and legs
Consistent, balanced gaits
We tailor the training program to individual’s needs.
We also work with the owner/handler to:
Achieve a correct and balanced seat
Gain confidence in riding
Identify unclear communication to the horse, which cause confusion and unwanted behavior
Learn common bad habits caused in horses and how to avoid them.
At Stone Creek Ranch the horse’s well being is always our first priority. We have a knowledgeable staff who recognize the importance of a horse’s physical, as well as mental well being. Whether you are a beginner wanting to own your first horse, or someone who has owned horses for many years, we can offer you a relaxed and supportive atmosphere in which to expand your horsemanship skills. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for our boarders to learn more about their horses and themselves, and to make the horse ownership experience more rewarding for both the owner and their horse.
We offer full service board which includes: daily turnout in large pastures with nightly stalling; a balanced diet which takes into account the individual needs of the horse; daily monitoring for health and wellness; use of the facilities which include an 80×160 indoor arena, 100×200 outdoor arena, round pens, 98 acres with trails along fields and in woods, a heated bathroom, and a wash rack with warm water.
