Training

Training 

Maverick Ranch offers training for the horse and rider.  Our program is geared toward helping individuals and families learn how to work through common problem areas that horses experience on the trail.  Horses learn to adapt to neck reining in field work, but the predominant cues we use are hunter.  Our all inclusive fee is $850-$1450 per month depending on the needs of the horse and rider.  Limited spaces are available opening up in February of 2021.

We specialize in finishing family friendly, desensitized, responsive mounts as well as rehabilitating horses with major behavioral problems.  Training is offered at the Lockhart location predominantly, but we do haul as well for exposure.

Emergencies? Contact us directly for house calls, which can be taken on a limited basis.

Our paint mare, Coca, shows OTTB Dutch the ropes on water crossings after his facility deemed him “explosive” and “food aggressive.”  Dutch has gone on to serve children in jumping classes at JS Sport Horses in Florence as well as youth riders on trail and is currently with us and a FAVORITE of the students. And also a favorite of the owner!
