SERVICES

For the horse

• Colt starting: Colt starting follows the ATH method, with a solid groundwork that lasts about one month, followed by at least one more month of basic exercises on saddlework and another month in order to reinforce those foundation. The timing is indicative and should be valued on the colt, his skills and the customer’s goals. This colt starting is universal, regardless the destination of the colt, both recreational and competitive, both english or western. Attendance and partecipation of the owner is required as far as possibile after a first time, so as to be able to give him the necessary skills to understand and continue the job once the training is done.
• Training: A training of a horse yet started follows the ATH method, reinforcing lacking points and informing the owner about any needs of the horse. The training, depending on the request, can move to a competitive (in the case of western disciplines) or ricreational future. The timing will be assesses with the owner on the basis of the goals set. The price includes the lessons for the rider that will ride the horse, in order to make him learn the cues the horse has learned.
• Problematic horses: The ATH method will be used on problematic horses too, in order to find the origin of the problem and to study a resolution training program. ATH may discourage to carry on the training, because of the unsuitable conditions (dangerous horse, timeline too short, goals not suitable for the horse). The constant presence of the owner is strongly recommended during the training period.
