Our approach to horse training is natural, gentle and individualized to each horse.  We start and re-start horses for riding or for the track, or re-training race horses as hunter-jumpers or event horses.  Reading each horse as we go, watching and listening to how they react to new challenges, we can customize the pace of training to the particular horse, ensuring continued forward progress. At JohnMel Stables we utilize the principles of classical training.

We value positivity and provide a supportive and encouraging environment.  At JohnMel Stables, it’s important to us to integrate the owner into the horse’s training process for a smoother transition.  We remain available for consultation on an ongoing basis.
