Training

Trainer/Rider, Tammy Prevo, provides dressage training, introduction to cavaletti, long reining, in-hand work, introduction to hacking out, conditioning for sport and exercise therapy for rehabilitation.

With over 30 years working with all types of horses, Tammy specializes in training horses in a relaxing and confidence building fashion. Tammy’s sport of choice is Dressage, and training up the levels is her passion, but any horse in any sport can benefit from the improved balance, strength and coordination that Tammy’s style of basic Dressage training provides.

  • Hot and nervous horses thrive and blossom with Tammy’s training style, developing calm confidence in the work, while becoming more attentive and capable of performing their jobs with ease.
  • Dull or disengaged horses learn to take a new interest in their work and become more willing partners for their riders.
  • Horses that need additional strength and fitness to perform better develop that strength and fitness quite quickly with the varied conditioning program Tammy employs.
  • Horses coming back from injuries or long layoffs recover faster and come back stronger under Tammy’s program.
