Training

Hunter Over Fences horse trainingTraining is provided on a monthly basis. All training is done at our facility on the Mission/Maple Ridge border. Training has an emphasis on simplifying the aids so the horse completely understands and retains the information, providing a good base of basics and then moving forward at the horses pace.

Horses can come in at anytime in their riding career, whether that’s the start or if they might just need a tune up or maybe its a step in a new direction. Alicia Harper and Hylee Training specialize in Hunters and do the occasional jumper if it best suits the horse.  Horses in training can head out in the show string when the time is right for them and can be campaigned for owners or when the horse is ready, owners can jump in and head out to the shows with their horse.

Alicia’s approach to training, is a very old school approach. Much like you would have seen from Fox Hunters in the 60s. Which includes a number more hours in the saddle then those of the current day trainer.  As well as many more experiences for the horse. Alicia believes exposing the horse to cross training and setting them up with the tools to make them Amateur friendly.

Horses in Alicia’s training program regularly attend local schooling shows during the Winter and A circuit shows in the Summer.

Current rate for training is $1000 per month. + GST which includes all training and board fees.  Class fees at shows are not included.
