At CV Equine Ventures great horsemanship goes far beyond what you do when you ride. It is a way of life. It is about meeting the needs of the horses on every level, from how they are cared for, how they are fed and how they are educated, in a way that addresses their physical needs as well as their mental needs.
It is about teaching our students how horses think and how to relate to their horses needs based on the horse's point of view. It is about educating the horse and helping the people understand how to communicate with them. It is horsemanship that is based on a strong background of both experience and exposure. It is a style of horsemanship that promotes a mutual respect and understanding to create willing communication for both the horse and the student.
At CV Equine Ventures we believe it's as much about enjoying the journey of great horsemanship, not just the destination.Hal and Annette pride themselves on providing quality horsemanship on every level, and they draw on their combined years of experience along with their exposure to great horsemanship taught through the methods of Tom and Bill Dorrance, Ray Hunt and Buck Brannaman. Hal and Annette are both "Student" and "Teacher" of the Horse. They are two people that pride themselves on continuing to enrich their education for the betterment of both themselves, their clients, and most importantly the horse!
