Hello everyone. With the acceptance of my new position as program director for Brickhouse Equestrian Center on Johns Island I will no longer be taking training horses, or teaching lessons in Aiken SC. If you’d like to continue your education, Chan at The Riding School ‭(406-855-9125‬) has openings, amazing school ponies/horses, and always has fun events at her barn!!

I will still be clipping/mane pulling, so please feel free to contact me when you need some hair removed!

09/28/2018

Big changes happening next week!!

Also! I am looking for part time help at a barn in Cedar Meadows. Pay is 15 an hour for experienced, horse knowledgeable people. Duties include: stalls (if they were brought it, it is minimal), grooming, applying ointment to and and bathing 2-4 horses a day and cleaning water tanks (3). Its a pretty straightforward job, the horses are easy And the people pay on time and in full.

Riding opportunities also available for competent riders, this is not a show barn, it is fitting-up foxhunters. But, more riding may become available to the right person.

Please PM or text or call 8034398664 and have a reference available. Starts immediately.

Thank you!

With the hurricane on the way, we’re going to maintain as normal of a schedule as possible. I am going to open my lesson schedule up (as school is closed) for anyone that is interested!!

I believe our barn is full, but if you need a place to go, I can find room (people or ponies)! Please don’t hesitate to ask! As always, call 803-439-8664 for any information.

Camp continues!! The weather was perfect, and the horses and kids (and me!) were grateful for the break in the heat! Today we practiced teamwork and steering, as well as reading horses body language 🙂 Diggy was wore out by arts and crafts time, and the kids included him in their artwork ☺️😂. Our next camp is July 9th- 14th in the evening (530-8pm), call 8034398664 to sign up!

Parents, let your daughters grow up to be horse girls, because they will learn quickly and repeatedly that life isn’t fair, that hard work is often trumped by Lady Luck, and that every defeat, no matter how terrible, is temporary. Let them dream big and kick on. Let them learn confidence, grace and grit. Let them build big muscles and strong backs, and learn that a little blood and a little sweat are good things, because they show you you’re living.

Parents - Come bring your daughters out for an introductory lesson and learn the joy these animals bring to all those they come in contact with! Reach out to Therese 803-439-8664 to set up a lesson

Finally able to get the horses going in decent weather! After riding thru the snow on Wednesday, today with Alyssa, Holly and Isabel we worked on communication and rhythm between the fences, so both horse and rider have a good round. Loving this weather, and can’t wait to get to an Apple Tree South Show!! Call or message if you’re interested in a tune up lesson (flat or fences) 803-439-8664 fitness and tune up rides also available 🙂

Back at it on this lovely Tuesday morning! Matchbox and Patrick went on a nice long walk around the property and even blazed some of their own trails through the woods after doing a nice stretchy flat session to get them ready for the week.

Clipping day at Valhalla! Ketchup and comet (client horses), and matchbox all finally got their hair issues under control this afternoon.
Our lessons today featured *drum roll* more ground poles to work on sanity and straightness for thoroughbred brains. We're getting busier and busier as the days go by- be sure and schedule clipping, braiding, lessons, etc.

On this dreary day, matchbox would like to remind everyone that clipping season is upon us! Matchbox is obviously in dire need of a good clip, and we are taking care of him as soon as this rain lets up- but how many of you have ponies needing to lose some fluff?
Schedule a clipping with us today! Message here or contact Therese Grittner directly for pricing.

Now that it has been chilly outside for a whopping 2 days, it feels right to advertise for our Halloween fun show/clinic on the 29th!
We will be having horse/rider costume contests, some fun classes, coached jumping rounds, guided rides through our wonderful trails, and of course, tasty snacks!

We Will be setting up a more official Facebook event with prices and detailed info later today. Stay tuned!

Today was cross country schooling day! Baby desi and Alyssa thoroughly enjoyed their first schooling and matchbox and Kristy had a blast remembering what it's like to school xc.
Here's a video of Alyssa and desi!
We love the The Vista Schooling and Event Center :)

Hack day adventures around Valhalla! We took an extra long walk since this week was a tough work week. It's so important for horse and rider brains to spend plenty of time trail riding as well as in the ring. No horse can he fully fit without days spent exploring. Plus, look at the pretty stuff we find!

Also, the dogs around here take part in horse care, too. Here we have froggy learning from Rorschach to lead matchbox up to the top barn. :)

Have a good Monday tomorrow, everyone!

10/13/2017

Our big flat lesson of the week incorporated a circle made with poles on the ground to create a 10, 15, and 20 meter space to keep the horses in. Focussing on steering and keeping the horses collected enough to walk, trot, and canter consistently, all of the teams learned how much core strength (and rear end strength for the horses) is needed to really look good and not ooze out of the designated ring space. All of the horses, from the greenies to old timers, benefit from these types of exercises.
Here you can see matchbox/Kristy, tully/mark, desi/Alyssa, cece/alyssa, and latte/Kristy- and if you look very closely, you can see Therese demonstrating to desi how his body needs to learn to move. :)

Sale bio time-
This is cece!
Cece is a 12 year old 15'2 hand breeding stock paint mare who is skilled in eventing and is looking for a new person to build confidence in. She has three very easy to ride, fancy, adjustable gaits, and is soft in the bridle. She happily hacks out alone or in a group with confidence and has no vices. She is an easy keeper and is not mareish at all. She's sound, quiet, and will pass a pre-purchase exam with flying colors. She's currently in training at Valhalla Equestrian Center and doing phenomenally! We all will be sad to see her go, but know this girl deserves to find the perfect human to go on adventures with.
Feel free to contact us with any questions about this lovely lady, and be sure to check out the short video clip in the comments :)

Today was flat work day. We mixed it up by adding some cavaletis. Latte and Lucy were great for their first day at work in our program!
Pictured here is cute little Lucy's face (ft diggy photobombing), Alyssa and desi, Kristy and matchbox (and Lexi spectating), and Hugo peeking from around the run in shed. The weather is beautiful and the horses are doing great. Tomorrow is jump day, featuring a guest instructor so Therese can actually get yelled at for once 😃

Hope everyone had a nice weekend! Today was our back to work hack day. We welcomed our new sales projects, Lucy and latte, with a nice long walk around the property, then met the dentist so matchbox could get his teeth done, followed by a nice long hack (featuring Glenn, the dentist riding tom- he's for sale and very trail safe) with our other set of horses. Now everyone is warmed up and ready for the work week 😎

The first part of today's lesson focussed on seat-guided steering. With as little rein as possible, we worked on using our seats to keep the horses going, steering, and stretching into the bit as much as possible. Want an ab work out? Practice this! Overall fitness is definitely a necessity for proper communication with our horses.

After our relaxing Monday off, we kicked off the week with a nice, long hack on the trails surrounding our farm. The ponies and dogs are now successfully woken up for their work week.
added bonus- no horse leaves this farm with dog issues! Today we only had 5 with us, but we have been known to have 10-12.
