TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT CURRICULUM

Phase I:
THE FOUNDATION
(For All Horse Owners)

This is a 90 Day Program where your horse will learn the fundamental skills mentally, physically & emotionally to navigate their lives with trust in their human leader. They will develop control of their own body & mind and deep understanding, willingness and confidence in what is asked of them. Their education will be developed in and out of the arena ensuring diverse experiences for a deeply rooted education.

Phase II:
INTERMEDIATE
(By Invitation Only)

By invitation only, the second level of our Training and Development Curriculum focuses on the Intermediate groundwork and ridden exercises as well as classical in-hand work. More emphasis is put on softening and suppling the horse’s five body parts: head and neck, poll, shoulders, ribcage and hindquarters. The training session is approximately 90 days in length.

Phase III:
ADVANCED
(Selected by Colton)

After completing the Intermediate training, horses are selected by Colton to continue their training and will be taught the Advanced level exercises. This third level is all about finessing the control you have of your horse on the ground and under saddle. Your horse will spend approximately 90 days in the Advanced Training and Development Program.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

"My 3.5 year old Gypsy, Kit, was started under saddle by Colton Woods Horsemanship. Colton put 70 days of training on my young mare and we are so happy with her progress! Kit has an incredible foundation on the ground and under saddle now. Kit's supple, responsive, and respectful. I can not believe how far Kit progressed in only 70 days. I LOVE that Colton took the time to give us lessons with Kit almost weekly and truly wanted to help us learn how to continue Kit's training once she returned home. Colton has a wonderful ability to teach! Colton is an amazing trainer who wants to connect horses and their owners!"
