Sensory and Obstacle Training
Whether you want your horse to be less concerned about things while riding
the trails or around your farm, or for it to remain calm and safe in traffic or in an urban
environment, let the professionals at Suncoast Equine help. Utilizing many
of the same methods used to prepare police horses for law enforcement service,
our staff will work with you and your horse to achieve your goal.
Unfortunately many horses are set back in their training and their confidence
diminished when obstacles are presented to them improperly. The trainers
at Suncoast Equine, however, use a gradual approach and proven techniques that
help ensure positive confidence building for both the horse and rider. The
methods, techniques and duration of training is tailored to your specific needs.
In order for your horse to retain its training, we will instruct you on the
proper methods to keep your horse at the desired level of desensitization.
Mounted Police and Posse Training
Suncoast Equine offers various levels of training for both full-time and part-time sworn law enforcement officers, as well as
non-sworn members of a law enforcement agency's civilian equestrian support
organization, commonly referred to as a mounted reserve or posse. Each course provides students with the knowledge and skills
needed to competently perform his or her responsibilities. All of our
training is insured. Classes are regularly conducted at our facility
at the Emerald Oaks Ranch in Webster, Florida. If you would like for us to
conduct a class closer to you, please contact us for arrangements.
Self Defense on Horseback
Unfortunately in the world we live in today, it is just as possible to be
accosted or attacked while riding horseback on a trail than you walking to your
car in a parking lot. The instructors at Suncoast Equine will prepare you
with self defense techniques that you can use to ward off an attacker while you
are on horseback.
Formation Riding training is an ideal means for improving rider and horse coordination, as well as developing discipline, control and flexibility, both in the rider and in the horse. Although Formation Riding training has become an integral part of a mounted law enforcement officer’s training regiment, it is equally beneficial to non-law enforcement riders. Correctly learned and executed, the skills developed in this training will make you, your horse and your entire group an eye-catching presentation in parades and other events.
Because Formation Riding is taught in groups, check our
calendar for the next Formation Riding clinic, or
contact us to arrange a clinic for your group on your schedule.
