Professional horse starting and training
Specialising in sensitive and challenging horses
Troubleshooting and resolving training issues
Centaur Connection provides a professional horse starting and training service for clients who want to achieve optimal balance and a relationship of trust.
Our speciality is in working with sensitive and challenging horses and assisting horses who have training issues. We also address biomechanical, tension and behavioural issues with bodywork and behaviour training.
"We combine our horse training service with rider lessons on school horses so the horse and rider training is optimised. For horses that we retrain and sell, we ensure the rider demonstrates has developed competence with riding, care and training of the horse and will refuse sale of a horse if we are not confident in the horse and rider suitability."
The foundation of our training draws from classical dressage training methods combined with animal training psychology.
The training period is dependent on the horse's physical and learning capacity. The longer we have time to work with the horse the more physical conditioning we can achieve and instil more training foundations. Bear in mind that horses, like us, can only perform as well as its fitness will allow and horses also lose fitness and conditioning when not in work so this factor needs to be allowed for when booking your horse in for training with us. We commence training of horses no sooner than 3yo, preferably starting them after 4yo.
We offer a training package that includes agistment, feed and horse training.
