As Debbie expands her clinic program, she has a limited number of training slots. Please reserve your horse's slot well in advance. A non-refundable deposit is required for your reservation, with the balance due upon your horse's arrival.

Please email or call Debbie at (719)748-8543 for more information or to make your reservations. Debbie looks forward to working with you and your horse as you work to Building The Horse Of A Lifetime™!



Monthly Training

Debbie offers customized training at Running D Ranch, including ground work, colt starting, trail riding and problem solving. Beginning through advanced levels of work under saddle is available as well. Training is based on a minimum 1-month period. A 2-month period is required for horses being started under saddle.

Before you horse begins training, you will receive a Horse Training Information Form where you will provide your training goals for your horse. Debbie will make sure your horse is trained to meet your goals for your horse. Debbie feels strongly that the success of your horse's training is strongly tied to your participation. You will receive one weekly lesson with your horse during his training period. More lessons can be scheduled if you'd like. You are also encouraged to participate in clinics held at Running D Ranch during your horse's training.

Training fees include Debbie working with your horse approximately an hour per day, four to five days per week. This provides consistency for your horse while also giving him some time off for relaxing - another important part of your horse's training. We provide full-care training, including two daily feedings with high-quality MannaPro Super Horse feeds and high-quality grass-alfalfa mix hay, daily turnout (weather permitting). The 12x12-foot stalls and adjoining runs are cleaned at least once daily for your horse's comfort. We also maintain our arena and round pen to help safeguard your horse during his training time. Horses are also fitted with appropriate protective boots during their training sessions. Every horse is handled on a daily basis and basic ground manners reinforced in our daily activities of cleaning stalls and walking back and forth to turnout.

You are welcome to visit Running D Ranch and meet Debbie before you commit to a training program for your horse. Debbie also welcomes you to watch your horse's training sessions.
