Young horse training

Young horse training
Our young endurance horses start the training at 4 years old, after a short basic education of dressage in the arena, they get used to the walker-machine and the treadmill, but only at walk to respect their body developpement and muscular condition. Finally, we ride theim on long and slow rides on hilly tracks, to build their endurance capacity and body condition. During this firt year, they participate to rides dedicated to young horses from 20 to 40 km (SHF).Then, at 5 and 6 years old, we keep on working the same way, until the final goal : the national final dedicated to young horses at Uzes on 60 and 90 km. During all this period of time, we feed our horses with the best quality food and supplements, 3 main companies support us since many years : Equideos, Dodson & Horell, Olitys with Life Force Formula (Alltech).

However, every winter from october to february, they are back to the big pastures, living in group of horses, take a rest for a few months. we beleive it is important to start training the horses early at 4 years old, but it is also a good thing to give theim rest in the winter, to grow and improve their condition year after year.
