REVIEW DETAIL – “DESPITE HAVING SICK CHILDREN AND LACK OF SLEEP, WE HAD A BEAUIFUL THANKSGIVING AND THOROUGHLY ENJOYED ALL OF THE UNIQUENESS OF THE POTATO HOUSE. THE LITTLE BOYS ESPECIALLY LOVED THE HORSES! I LOVED THE DECOR AND ANTIQUITIES…SO BEAUTIFUL AND UNUSUAL. PLACING THE LARGE ANTIQUE JARS ON THE BALCONIES IS BRILLIANT.

2016 Azzuro by Hollsteiner stallion Alliano our 2019-2020 Young Horse in Training

Welcome to Brek-n-Ridge Farm Bleu! We welcome Debbie and Charlie and Team Bleu into the Brek-n-Ridge Farm Young Horse Training Program. A 2016 colt, this kind gelding was first started last year, ridden lightly and will be trained at Brek-n-Ridge by Karin Reid Offield and BnR Manager and Trainer/Instructor Andrew Figures.

Andrew’s love for ground training, and his soft and correct riding style for a young horse will suit Bleu and his personality. Bleu’s owner/rider,  Debbie,  plans to take Bleu as far as the two can go together, once this youngster begins to develop the muscle and confidence from a riding program designed at Brek-n-Ridge Farm. Watch these posts for our photographic updates.

Young horse in Training 2018-2019

Brek-n-Ridge Farm is available to clients who wish to board, train or rehabilitate a horse. We are a small private stable with excellent staff and a caring and careful management style. We were thrilled to receive a young mare to train for a local family. Working together,  Karin and Andrew devised a training program for Andrew to follow over the months of work. Reina left Brek-n-Ridge as a sound prospect, ready for further training and the owners goals with the mare. Here is a video of Andrew and Reina prior to their departure.

We love working with the youngsters and are enthusiastic and willing to sit down and discuss your horses future, at your convenience.
