HORSE TRAINING

When you send your horse for training at Gascon Horsemanship, you’re guaranteed a hard-working team around your horse. I (Michael Gascon) and our entire team at the ranch will make sure your horse gets the best possible care and treatment.

As the head trainer, I will be responsible for the training of your horse throughout the entire period he or she is here.

I’LL SET UP A PROGRAM FOR YOUR HORSE AND FOLLOW-UP REGULARLY TO MAKE SURE YOUR HORSE MAKES THE PROGRESS NEEDED TO ACHIEVE YOUR EQUINE GOALS.

As part of that program, your horse will also be ridden and worked by other members of the team such as hired trainers and/or my Horsemanship Academy students to make your horse as forgiving as possible and used to a change of hands.

Whether it’s me riding your horse or one of my team members, all training follows our Gascon Horsemanship methods and is supervised by me to ensure top quality.

What Will My Horse Learn During Training?

Every horse is different and will advance on varied levels. However, the following is our typical basic standard for a horse that leaves here after 30 days as a colt starting horse.

Of course, this will vary for horses that come here with no human exposure and have to be unloaded off the trailer with no handling experience. Please have realistic expectations for horses that have to learn how to trust humans, being handled, and pressure and release system.

WORLD-CLASS HORSE CARE

Your horse will get the best possible care at Gascon Horsemanship. We have a full-time nutritionist on staff that will make sure your horse gets all the supplements and the right amount of grain. Breakfast is served at 7 a.m. and dinner at 4 p.m. daily.

Your horse will have free-choice grass hay available 24/7 and his stalls will be cleaned 6 days a week and re-bedded daily to ensure comfort.

YOUR HORSES’S SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY, SO ALL TRAINING HORSES ENJOY REGULAR TURNOUT BY THEMSELVES WITH NO DIRECT CONTACT WITH OTHER HORSES

Turn-out paddocks are rubber fencing with an electric fence barrier and used on rotation for play, rolling, playing in the water tub, and sun time. Each horse receives proper fly spray and sunscreen (if needed) before being turned out and then receives a full bath before coming back inside.

We believe horses need a day to rest and recover just like humans, so all training horses are worked 6 days per week and Sunday is a rest day.

In addition to the full-time nutritionist, we also have a farrier, equine chiropractor, and equine dentist at our ranch regularly. If your horse would need any of these services, feel free to let us know! Our farrier charges $50 for a trim and $100 for a full set of shoes.

Horse training services are normally $4,997/month and are all-inclusive.

Gascon Horsemanship is the Best!

I will continue to take my horses to Michael for training. He is so sound, and logical. He is all about safety, enjoyment, and the horse understanding what you want from them.

Thank you for your kind words! We're so glad you've found our training program helpful and informative. We hope to see you again soon!

Training for two

We are so happy with the weekly reports we are getting on Bishop and Patrick. So happy that we decided to take the plunge and haul them over 10 hours to get the best training possible for them. Miss them lots but sure they are learning to be the best horse/mule they can be.

Thank you for your kind words! We are so happy to hear that our training is providing such great results - we feel lucky to have been able to provide the best possible care for Bishop and Patrick.
