Starting young horses under tack is another service offered at Mill Stone. We start with good ground basics which includes obedience and trust so that we may carry those basics through as we teach them to properly lunge and work under tack. Once they have been started under tack, we work to teach the young horse to trust the rider and understand the riders aids so that the horse can continue to develop.

Our lesson program: Mill Stone’s philosophy is that in order to succeed, all horses/riders need to be in an ongoing instructional program. Mill Stone’s lesson program involves students taking two lessons per week. These lessons are taught in a private setting and are customized to educate and challenge their abilities and to improve their weaknesses. Both Kevin McQueen and Jacqueline Roberts take time to explain to students not only what to do, but the “how” and “why” of what they are being asked to do. It is very important that lessons are taught in a very quiet and supportive atmosphere, always emphasizing the positive while giving suggestions of how to correct the negative. We strive to teach students that they need to learn to communicate clearly through their aids so that their horses respond correctly.
