breaking in horses, schooling, reschooling  Starting (Breaking In), Schooling and Bringing On of Young Horses - Problem Horses Reschooled

We offer starting, schooling and bringing on of young and "problem" horses.
We specialise in horses that other people have given up on.
Where others might see a "problem" horse we see a challenge!

Our methods involve patience, understanding and knowing the psychology of the individual horse. Every horse is different and our experience over the years of dealing with a wide range of horses and ponies has given us a wealth of knowledge about the best way to deal with each animal.

long reining young horse as part of the schooling process

We take horses and ponies at all stages of their schooling, from the unbacked youngster to the horse that has had a period without work.

In addition, if your horse has a specific problem eg. difficulty loading or problems catching we can help you discover the best way to deal with such problems.

lunging pony at Underhill stables during rechooling of problem horse Horses and ponies come to us from all over the country for starting and schooling. We offer stabling, feed and grazing whilst your horse is with us. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

We prefer to use the word STARTING rather than BREAKING IN as the latter implies a fight with the horse and this is definitely NOT our approach!

WE ARE OPEN ALL YEAR - Tuesday to Sunday

Visitors to the yard are very welcome to watch us starting and schooling horses. There is always something to learn from these exercises in equine psychology!

A Partnership in the Making
The image on the left shows Jess from Underhill Stables with a client who brought her horse for reschooling.

We are happy to spend time with owners as well as their horses as part of the schooling process.

Alternatively, if you prefer to drop your horse off with us, forget about him and pick him up later, schooled and "made", we are can oblige.

Clients' Comments
I brought my 6 year old Irish Cob gelding, Boston to Underhill Stables as he was a serious and persistent "napper" both in the school and out on a hack. After 3 weeks at Underhill he was much more manageable and could be ridden in the school quite happily without suddenly veering off or stopping dead as he used to do. Out on a hack, he actually went first and I even got him to turn round and move away from the group of horses he was with on the way back to the stables - this would have been unthinkable before!
The staff at Underhill also gave me lessons on Boston and showed me how to handle him which was very helpful. "

- Ruth Jones, Llanidloes

In addition to starting and schooling we offer riding lessons, pony trekking, hacking and NVQ courses, all in the beautiful and unspoilt Mid Wales countryside.

We are prepared to consider purchasing horses/ponies when it is clear that the owner and horse's "chemistry" is not compatible.
Matching the horse to the person is all important to the well being of both and is not necessarily a failure if things do not work out.
It is better to admit it and move on.
