At Sekanic Show Stables, training sessions and rides are offered to any age or skill level; basic groundwork, basic dressage flatwork and jumping are to be taught to each horse by experienced trainer, Brittany Lowe. Training sessions are to be challenging and educational for the horse, but will also be a positive and patient experience. Brittany prides herself on her patient teaching style; she knows that not every horse or person learn and develop from the same teaching style, so she tries to teach based off of each person’s or horse’s individual learning style. She believes that positive reinforcement helps with the communication between horse and rider. The horse should learn to carry itself through any task asked of it and should not need to be forced to do its job correctly. A typical week at Sekanic Show Stables for a horse, is a week that builds upon itself. Early in the week you will see lunging, side rein work, pessoa rig work and light flatwork. As the week progresses there will be more advanced flatwork and jumping exercises and as the week finishes you will see coursework and higher jumps. Our horses only jump 3 times a week; we believe there is a lot to learn on the flat and over small poles, cavaletti and jump exercises which allows our horses to stay fit but not overused.
Sekanic Show Stables takes on any horse; whether it has problems that need to be sorted through, needs to be broke to ride, is green or experienced in it's discipline. We love a challenge, but also enjoy seeing a horse progress through the levels correctly. We find that a horse's progression upward towards being a soft and supple well trained horse is one of the most rewarding prizes of being a horse trainer, not necessarily the ribbons won or money earned, even though it's a plus! We love showing off what we produce, so we go to both local shows and USEF shows nationally. We can campaign your show horse, whether its a young hunter just getting started, a derby horse or a jumper. Brittany has a long and successful USEF record with 20 years of show experience and has a ton of success on the local NTHJC circuit as well.
We do allow for haul-ins at an individual rate of $100 per ride; a haul-in fee does apply. Click on our Paperwork tab for more on specific pricing.
Young Horse Training
Our young horse training package is geared for horses ages 0-3years old. Our farm is the ideal place for a young horse to live and learn how to grow up. We have large peaceful pastures, knowledgeable staff and diversity in training locations on the property. From foaling out, to halter breaking, to groundwork, to jump chutes, to breaking, to trailer loading, to clipping, to standing for the farrier, to basic flatwork, our young horse trainer, Emma Fowler has you covered. She is experienced with setting up youngsters for success as future hunters, jumpers, equitation or dressage horses. Brittany follows their journeys with Emma closely and lends a helping hand when necessary and gets to know them through the young stages as well. Once they have been sent through Emma’s young horse program and are going walk, trot and canter under saddle, they are sent over to Brittany to start learning to jump and fine tune their flatwork for the desired discipline. Both Emma and Brittany have a history of developing great young horses that have seen a lot of success in the show ring over the years. Our property allows for us to work our horses in a variety of ways including round pen work, lunging, ground driving, side reins work, pessoa system work, hill work, jump chutes, cavaletti and pole work, trail rides through trees, over ridges and around ponds, as well as hacking and jumping in an arena setting and derby field setting. In addition to training; we set these youngsters up for their show lives. We can take youngsters along for the ride to horse shows and can show them in the breeding and young horse classes if desired and properly market them to sell. Los Arboles has been breeding and selling young warmbloods for over 10 years. If you want a youngster started slow and correct, shown or sold, Sekanic Show Stables can do that for you.
