Shelby has plenty of experience starting horses under saddle from her work with rescue horses and ponies to starting Thoroughbred racehorses under saddle for the racetrack. Her experience enables her to be a sympathetic rider and handler, giving your horse the best possible start to their ridden career and eliminating stress. Saddle breaking programs are recommended for several sessions a week, board may be a possibility depending on availability. Saddle breaking starts at $45 per session, with discounts on full training and half training packages.
With experience riding Thoroughbreds on and off the track, along with starting a variety of horses under saddle (including previously abused horses and problem horses) and riding horses on the Hunter/Jumper and Arabian Horse circuits, Shelby has a wide breadth of experience with many different types of horses from all walks of life. Training rides are offered throughout the Lower Mainland of British Columbia and Shelby will travel to you*. Sessions start at $40 CAD for sessions off property and pricing will vary dependent on the horse's level of experience as well as frequency of the rides (discounts for training packages and discounts for horses who come to Shelby’s home farm).

Lessons are an exceptionally important part of rider development. Having a second set of eyes watching and assisting from the ground is an asset to helping to improve both yourself and your horse. Shelby offers riding lessons to a variety of experience levels. Pricing varies dependent on whether or not you can provide your own horse. Currently, Shelby can only offer horses up for lessons to intermediate level riders due to not having beginner-safe horses. Lessons start at $30 CAD on your own horse. There is an extra charge for lessons on a provided horse.
Filming your rides and studying yourself is an excellent way to self-improve and prepare yourself for what to work on during your next ride. Shelby is offering a video critiquing service if you would like a second opinion on your riding. Please ensure to provide as much detail as possible about your horse and what you’re hoping to work on, along with an adequate length video. This will allow for more accurate critique and constructive advice. Due to the busy nature of Shelby’s schedule and the volume of emails she receives, there will be a $10 CAD charge for this service per video. Interested parties pay here and then can send their videos via YouTube link using the contact form.
Send Shelby an email relaying what you’re looking for advice on. Please provide as much information as possible in order to give her the best chance of providing helpful advice. Due to the volume of emails Shelby receives, there may be a waiting period in getting a response. She will do her best to get back to you as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience. This is currently a free service or by donation to the BCSPCA (highly appreciated).
