Our Training ...

Building a solid foundation begins from birth.

Relaxation is the first step in building a solid foundation. Without relaxation, there is no constructive learning. Training a horse is a life-long journey. "Take the time it takes" is probably the most accurate way to describe how we do things at Aartila Arabians. Building a bond of trust, mutual respect & a healthy mind is accomplished well before any work under saddle ensues. It may take longer to get from ground to saddle, but I find that transferring lessons from the ground to the saddle is easier for the horse, and makes our work together actually go more smoothly. The horses are readily adaptable & trainable & prepared to move on in their training.
