Longevity of health, physically and mentally is the goal of all horses’ training at ICF. Whether a current FEI competitor, a youngster just starting, an older schoolmaster a western dressage horse or an event prospect, etc. We are concerned with the quality of the daily experience of horse and rider.
Training goals are specific to horse and rider combinations. Each client will be involved in an ongoing candid discussion of personal goals for him or herself and that of their horse(s). The core belief at Inner Circle Farm is classical systematic training for any horse at any level or discipline be it jumping or western dressage. It is imperative for good communication to exist between horse and human for learning to take place. Therefore, detailed attention is paid to kinesthetic body awareness on the part of the rider, and ensuring that the horse comprehends what is being asked of him.
Feel free to contact Laura Parker or Jayne Marino for more clarification on training programs or any other questions you may have.
We welcome and offer access to other qualified trainers who share our basic philosophy.
“The foundation that Inner Circle Farm exists on is honest love for the sport and for horses as beings. It shows in the people that choose to board there, in the workers who take care of the horses and in the owner, Laura Parker. Laura has broken through some large roadblocks that my horse and I had encountered. She thoroughly explains what and why we were performing a certain exercise. She uses a similar method to communicate to the horses by “explaining” her aides and requests, which is why I feel my horse and I have come so far since being at Inner Circle Farm.”
