Training Services

Along with riding lessons, C7 Performance Horses offers in-house training to outside horses. Training fees include board, and both stall and pasture board are offered through training slots. Stall board training fees are $1,050 for 30 days, and pasture board fees are $950 for 30 days.

While trainer Casey Jordan rides both English and Western, she believes that every horse, whether English, Western, performance or not, needs a safe, calm, solid foundation in order to excel in whatever direction the horse is meant to go.

While each horse will receive a training program specially tailored to them, no matter the discipline, each horse will be given a foundationally correct education either under saddle or on the ground. C7 Performance Horses is  also available for tune-ups and general exercise rides.

Winding Creek Has Room to Grow!

Boarding offers peace of mind to owners who want to know that their horse will be cared for. Winding Creek is a safe, loving and healthy environment for your horse. We board in our indoor barn and heated arena. We can socialize your horse with others and provide special services as needed.
