Schedule Information Application

This course is an introduction for youth and young adults to the sport horse breeding farm, its purpose, operation, and overall goals. The participants will have two full days at one of the largest dressage sport horse breeding farms in the country. Included in their time at the farm will be sessions specific to both mare and stallion management, the handling of foals and young horses and their training – from first haltering to under saddle as an FEI horse; and ideal conformation and movement of the dressage sport horse will be introduced. Participants will also have the opportunity to gain experience evaluating the gaits of young horses under saddle. Unique for 2019 will be the opportunity for attendees to observe an Oldenburg Breeders' Society North American Division of GOV inspection, which will be part of this educational opportunity, and held at Maplewod Warmbloods. This inspection will include stallion licensing and mare performance testing.
