Horse Training

Equitate offers a full-service training schedule for American Saddlebreds of any age or training level. We specialize in teaching both juvenile and amateur riders how to ride and show their Saddlebred horses. Equitate can assist with a training program that works for your horse and your goals for that horse. Each  horse  has  its  own  customized  daily  training  routine,   which  is  planned  according  to  each  horse  and  their  own  individualized  needs. Staff  lives  on  the  farm  so  horses  are  looked  after  all  day,  every  day.      Clients   trust  the  care  of  their  horses  with  the  quality  and  experienced  staff  at   Equitate.    Equitate LLC also offers the service of finding and matching a rider with the right horse in all aspects of suitability, including the level of both horse and rider.Equitate goes to the greatest lengths to care and training of its horses. We train American Saddlebreds for all divisions, even western and driving.

Under the direction and expertise of Equitate’s trainers, show riders and their horses have bought home, regional, national, and world reserve and grand champion titles. Let them bring you some show ring success.
