EDUCATION

$78 + GST –  $85 + GST per day

4 – 6 weeks (breaking in)

4 weeks + (re-education)

Whether you want your horse started under saddle or a few issues ironed out, we can provide your horse with a well round education.

 

We take our horses out hacking, ride them in the arena and usually take them to either the Matamata or Cambridge training tracks before they go into work with their trainers/riders. This way they have been on and off the truck a number of times and have seen a lot before they leave.

 

Having previously been a jockey also has its advantages, as Chad knows how to best educate young horses in the gates, to ensure they jump out correctly. He is also able to ride them at the trials if need be which is a real asset.

 

SALES PREPARATION

In-training leading up to the breeze-ups $76 + GST per day

Sales preparation post the breeze-ups $72 + GST per day + 2.5% of the sale price achieved

Chad has selected and prepared horses for the Ready to Run Sales for a number of years and has achieved great results.

 

He utilises his eye for selection and skills as a trainer and jockey to prepare the horses and ensure they perform the best they are capable of. Being able to also ride the horses during their preparations and at the breeze-ups is a real advantage, as it means your horse will have the best chance of breezing up impressively to achieve the best price in the ring.

 

PRE-TRAINING

 $76 + GST per day

If you want your horse to be brought back into work or have a change of scenery for a freshen up during a campaign, we have all of the facilities to deliver just this for you. 

 

We take into account your needs and pride ourselves on providing a professional service that ensures your horse returns to you well conditioned, at the fitness level required.
