First Hoofprints℠ specializes in training methods developed by our trainer Lyz, fusing hand/leg cues & body language with vocal cues [taking the best aspects from both English & Western riding styles]. This combination of techniques allows the rider to improve communication with their horse while using gentle training methods. This will in turn encourage the most effective response & achieve the most natural & fluent movement from the horse under saddle. This training style also allows the horse to be ridden in any tack preferred while still maintaining a strong connection with the horse.
