We provide gentle foundational Natural Horsemanship training on-site at our central New Jersey stable located in Flemington, New Jersey.   We are conveniently located just off local major roads.

We bring 35+ years experience working with horses of all ages and all disciplines to our Natural Horsemanship based training program.

We know that every horse is an individual, and as such, we create a custom training program for each horse in our program allowing them to progress at a pace that is challenging yet achievable, regardless of the riding discipline. 

Our approach is based on understanding the nature of individual horses and horses in general, then using that understanding to create effective communications.  We also seek to help you use the horse's natural instinct to bond and seek leadership to form an effective and lasting partnership with your horse based on mutual respect, balance and harmony.

Our natural horsemanship foundational training specialty includes:

  • Starting and Restarting Horses
  • Behavioral Issues
  • De-Sensitizing

11 YO TWH Racking horse mare for experienced riders.  She is gentle, loves attention, has been shown in model and racking classes and has done very well.

Interested persons only please contact MARY ANN besthoof@comcast.net

Gaited Horse & Rider Training Program
:  We train the rider to help their horse put their "Best Hoof Forward, " find the horses' natural gait, gait their horse correctly, and distinguish between the gaits. With the horse, we work to refine the natural gait of the Tennessee Walking Horse.

Natural Horsemanship is a foundation for good manners and especially safety that starts on the ground, but goes with you into the saddle. This foundational training technique is for ALL types of riding, in ALL types of places, whether it be in the exercise ring, on the trail, or in the show ring.

Contact Mary Ann today to discuss availability and rates.
