Lessons & Training
Lesson and Training programs are customized for each individual horse and rider, as no two have the same needs. Please feel free to reach out to Anni and discuss your needs and goals to help her customize a program for maximum benefit.
Your Own Horse
Lessons on your personal horse are all scheduled on an individual basis, to get the most benefit. Lessons are structured around the horse and rider needs and goals based off the training pyramid and the USPC rating criteria as building blocks. Anni teaches with patience, passion and persistence- not by the clock. Lessons take as long as the they take till the goals are accomplished. Anni has very successfully helped many students develop their own horses to the preliminary level, and most of those have been primarily in her lesson program.
Grand Farms has 4 wonderful school horses and ponies that are used in the schooling program to teach riders from the ground up. Each lesson is structured for the riders to learn grooming, handling, tacking up, horse care, untacking, tack care as well as riding. As students become more independent, they are welcome to come early and groom and tack up ahead of time, to allow for more time in the saddle. We believe that in order to be a great rider, one must first become a great horseman, and all our teaching and lessons are structured after the USPC system, which has a large emphasis on safety.
With more then 20 years’ experience under her belt, Anni is very good at customizing a training program for each horse and rider. Whether your horse needs a tune up after some time off, needs show miles to spring board to the next level, get sold to a perfect home or you simply want to continue there education, Anni is happy to discuss a training program with you.
Not only do they get education under saddle, but we hold horse care in the highest regard and all of the horses are handled daily, even on there day off. We have much experience in injury rehab, restarting horses off the track, starting babies from the ground up, re schooling problem horses as well as continuing horses education and developing them up the levels. Our horses get daily turnout, lots of miles both in and out of the arena, and ground manner education as needed. The opportunity for horses to experience schooling shows, XC schooling trips and recognized events grows every season as the team grows.
Whether it is a 30 day tune up or a long term training project, your horse will get the education they need in our program.
Coaching & Shows
Every season Anni lay’s out a show schedule for the team and is available to coach at those events and schooling shows. This includes help in preparation and packing, schooling beforehand, course walks, warm-ups and debriefing about your rides. Not everyone does every show, but it is still impossible for Anni to be everywhere, as much as she tries, so on occasion coaching may be assisted by one of the more experienced riders.
Anni is available for clinics off the property (single day or multi day) Day fee is $500 plus travel and accommodations, if needed.
