Our speciality is starting and training young horses including breeding quality colts and youngsters destined for competition and amateur or junior riders interested in learning the art of training a young horse to be a strong, successful, and happy competitor.  Our programs include:

  • Ground training and initial under saddle training/ starting of youngsters with foundation for both dressage and jumping (horses must be at least 3 years of age to be ridden) by Branscomb Farm staff Jesus Perez who has a decade of professional experience starting and developing horses for multiple disciplines. 
  • Training/coaching riders (novice to advanced) in horsemanship and age appropriate training programs for their own horses.
