Our Philosophy

At Balmoral the priority is the horse. Understanding the unique needs of each individual is one of the cornerstones of our success.

Through patience and experience we can zero in on what makes each horse tick; tailoring a comprehensive training plan to bring out the best in every one.

Confident horses become winning horses. The same goes for each rider in our program – we work to understand their individual needs, goals and learning style.
