Kalley Krickeberg Horse Training

I train out of the beautiful Triple Crown Equestrian Center in Lincoln, California. I have access to cattle, multiple large indoor and out door arenas with high quality footing, along with large open fields to work and train in. Triple Crown is a very active, public facility that offers horses a lot of exposure to the real world.

My training program is structured to provide a strong and well rounded foundation for all horses, by offering diverse exposure that will serve them well in any discipline.

Subjects covered: 

  1. Basic Skills; Walk, Trot, Canter, Steer, Stop and Back up on a loose rein

  2. Collection; Starting at the level of the horse currently, and advancing as the horse is able

  3. Patterns; Those that enhance the horse's ability to think an apply themselves, yet not learn to anticipate

  4. Cattle; Low stress handling and control, tracking and rating cattle

  5. Practical Skills: Ponying and being ponied, Stick-n-Ball (Swing a polo mallet, hit and follow a ball), Roping a simulator (and live cattle when available, if appropriate), Basic obstacle training (Bridge, Tarp crossing, Ground poles/log crossing and maneuverability)

 

Other Service Offered "A La Carte":

Hauling Training

As available, hauling to: Polo practice, Sorting practice, and "Ride Outs" in the mountains or on the ranch. Various fees will be associated with each outing, for example; fuel, entry, stall, and haul fee for the ride outs, or if you wish to have your horse hauled for the experience but not participate in the event its self. Hauling to different places is a huge part of getting a horse well seasoned and well broke.

 

Noteworthy:

  1. It takes a minimum of 2 years of daily professional training to "finish" a horse, which includes focused training on a specific discipline, hauling, showing, and/or working in different environments. As a t-shirt or bumper sticker once said: "I'm a trainer not a magician." I've done some pretty cool and amazing things with horse's, both riding and liberty, but that does not mean every horse is capable of doing those amazing things. Nor does it mean the owner is willing to leave the horse in training long enough to finish the training. Each horse's trajectory and owner's goals are unique, I do my best to bring those two things together.

  2. I cover a very specific variety of subjects, to make the best possible all around riding horse, with as balanced and stable a mentality I can develop with that individual. Results of training vary accordingly, based on; the horse's age, the length of time I have the horse, the horse's prior experiences or training, and the horse's individual mentality and athletic aptitude. My goal always, is to develop a smart, sensitive and calm animal.

  3. I have a background in many different disciplines that gives me the ability to relate to a wide variety of horses and horse owners. I often pull from one of these disciplines to aid the progression of a horse in another discipline, in essence it is cross training at its finest and it has worked very well for many horses.
