  • Our optional Young Horse Program
    Starting horses under saddle requires generally a 3 month commitment. Ideally, your horse should be able to graduate after three months as a good citizen with a good understanding of the rider's aids in all 3 gaits. Owner involvement is highly encouraged, especially if your horse leaves after the initial training commitment. Of course you can extend the training contract at your discretion if desired and continue in our program!


  • Lay-up
    Individual rehabilitation of injured horses at all stages of recovery. Hand walking, wrapping, bandaging, wound treatment, ultrasound treatment, etc. Cost of medical supplies and therapeutic devices not included.

Our optional therapeutic treatments and routines include TheraPlates, cold laser therapy, and regular visits by several practitioners for equine massage, chiropractic, and electromagnetic pulse therapy (PEMF/Bemer).

Make sure to contact us for lessons and individually tailored services or training programs!

"I started dressage training with Marion in early 2007. I had been a hard working dressage rider for almost a decade. I was showing at first level but wasn’t able to progress any further. Marion immediately diagnosed my problem…I was too tense!! I was clamping with my knees and my body was giving the horse the message to stop not to go. Marion spent a lot of time working with me to relax. Once I relaxed, the horse would move willingly forward. She had me ride horses that were schooled in the upper level movements, which helped me to understand the aids. I never thought I could do canter pirouettes, passage and piaffe.

Marion assisted me in importing a young talented Andalusian from Mexico. Many trainers don’t allow the owner to ride a young horse until he is educated. Marion had me ride my horse right from the beginning. She did this in a safe controlled environment that allowed me to be part of the process. This has been a wonderful experience and a great confidence builder."
