During the summer of 2010, we built out our first wash and grooming stall with cross ties and an escape door. This is in addition to the two sets of cross ties we have in the barn aisle.

Breaking / Free-Jumping / Small Arena

During the summer of 2010, we built a small arena for breaking and free-jumping our ponies in training. This is a specialized arena that can accomplish the following advantages:

"If you have a young horse that is destined to a life of jumping, or if you are looking to sell a young, unstarted horse, free jumping is an excellent way not only to evaluate your horse's potential over fences, but also to give him a head start into the world of jumping. Free jumping is the process in which you ask your horse to jump over one or more jumps when working free in the arena. ...[T]his can be done with nothing more than a single jump along the side of the arena.

There are many benefits to free jumping your horse. For young horses, it is a great way to build their confidence over fences before you even try to jump under saddle. By gradually building the fences, you can teach him that he is capable of jumping bigger jumps and more difficult combinations tha[n] he would normally have tried. With the side of the chute preventing him from running out, he is forced to face the jumps ahead of him. The trainer insists that the horse goes forward, so that refusal is not an option; in this way he becomes an honest jumper even before you get on his back.

You can also use free jumping to evaluate your horse's natural talent over fences. Because there is no rider to mess up his concentration or adjust his jump, your horse has the chance to jump naturally. While at first, he may not show a lot of ability, with practice many horses greatly improve their jump and become quite efficient .... Once you progress to jumping under saddle, your horse already ha[s] the confidence to jump small fences. In fact, since you will be starting with smaller fences under saddle than you used in the chute, you rarely have problems with refusals or other confidence issues that green horses generally show when jumping under saddle for the first time."

All horses and ponies at our farm are professionally evaluated and trained in this manner on their way to becoming future Dreams and Champions.

Champion Hunter Ponies' Field of Dreams

This is the front field on our pony farm, where we intend to build our future Champion Hunter Ponies' Field of Dreams - a place where we hope to build a cross-country course, have built a bank, two water ditch jumps, and eventer pond jump, and hope to create a pony driving and galloping conditioning track around the outside, where every pony can become a Champion under a Rainbow.
