Gary specializes in starting the young horse. He believes the first rides are the most important and stay with the horse the rest of it's life. Therefore its imperative that these first months be a positive experience giving the horse confidence and trust in his rider. This is why our horses, when sold, go on to make their owners very happy. These horses have never had a reason not to trust their rider. They have never been put in a position where they could be hurt. Training a horse isn't something you can learn from a book or video. It is a talent and gift and comes with years of experience and constant learning. No harsh methods are ever used, just patience. Each horse learns at a different pace and it's up to the trainer to understand and be able to read. When you pay for 30 days training that is exactly what you get. Each horse is sent home with a program designed by Gary. Follow his program and you are guaranteed to succeed.
We are thrilled to be continuing the tradition of representing Continental Saddlery in Canada. We represented Continental Saddlery for over a decade for Roy Ionson of Ionson's Saddlery. Roy carried many brands of saddles but Continental seemed to be the one most chose because of quality and fit. Gary finds the horses move freer with less restrictions in the shoulder area and no issues with back problems. The added bonus is the level of comfort the rider has when riding for a short period or long period of time. These saddles are all handcrafted individually. There is no mass production or assembly line here. The saddles offer a memory foam seat, flex tree with a narrow twist, pre-turned fenders and a lot of upgrades that are standard features with this brand. You can custom order and upgrade any model or you can choose from what we have in stock. At our facility we offer not only Continental Saddles but a variety of working tack that Gary uses everyday. Good quality leather headstalls and leather reins, along with Wonpads and cinches. Your basic working needs for everyday use that are all made with quality products. Check out our booth at the Ontario Reining Horse Association shows. We are located in Chatsworth, Ontario.
