Float Loading Training
Floating can be a stressful experience for both horse and rider. EquiTrain offers a float loading training package to train the horse to load correctly and teach the rider how to administer the techniques.
This package includes a float loading consultation session to assess what ground work is required for horse to load correctly. The horse will then be trained over the necessary amount of sessions. Once the horse has successfully consolidated the training, the rider or handler is then taught how to continue training with the horse.
Float Loading Consultation : $200 + Travel Fee
*Please allow for 1- 1.5hrs for first session
Follow up Float Loading Sessions : $80 + Travel Fee
