Shane will travel to your farm to work with you and your horse. He has a great track record for training and showing young hunters and jumpers both under saddle and over fences. Shane’s style combines a balanced seat with a strong leg and soft hands that bodes well for keeping a young horse on track. His methods are kind, consider the horse first and consistently produce winning results.
When your horse is in training with Shane, you can expect a healthy mix of flat work, gymnastics and cross country conditioning work. Shane believes a horse needs variety and is a stickler for conditioning. There is no “cookie-cutter” routine – every horse is treated individually from their feeding program to their work schedule.
Breaking and Starting
Shane can break and start your horse for any discipline. You can expect that your horse will be treated with kindness and that she will be given a thorough, solid foundation to go on to your discipline of choice. Sometimes owners want to be involved with this critical part of their horse’s life. You can either send the horse to Shane, or he can come to you to help you bring your horse along.

Shane is also known for fixing problems in pleasure horses and show horses. If you have a horse that has performance issues such as refusing fences, missing a lead change, or simply having trouble maintaining pace, Shane has a patient and deliberate way to fix these types of problems.
