Training at Cocklebur Farms
We train a small select number of gaited flat shod pleasure horses and mules for the public.  We start colts, finish horses, problem solve, and work on gait improvement.  Prices start at $450 a month plus any farrier and/or vet bills.   
All horses must have a current coggins and up to date on shots and vaccines.
We do not accept studs due to mares at the farm.  

Do not expect a "rush job" from us.  Our number one philosophy is GROUND WORK to estabish respect for us and reponse to our commands!  Our goal is to develop a relaxed, responsive, and well gaited horse.  We have a firm but gentle approach with LOTS of PATIENCE!

Please call or email for availability or any questions about our training methods.
