Ever dream about training and showing your own horse in halter, but just not sure how? Already know but would like to know more? Maybe your have a important show coming up an would like a little "refresher" and experience for your horse? Books can be confusing and videos don't always show some of the behind the scenes "issues" the handlers and horses face.

Now is your chance to take advantage of professional horse trainer, Wendye Gardiner of Solstice Training Center in Aubrey, TX, in your own backyard, for a fun day filled with learning the in's and out's of not just Traditional stand up, but Sport Horse as well! 

If you have been on the fence and making excuses for yourself and your horse, here is a wonderful opportunity! We encourage you to bring your special horse out, have some fun with a great group of people and learn something new and exciting.

After the halter clinic, we are offering all handlers and horses a chance to let their hair down and really shine! This class is not judged or charged and strictly for fun and to help create lasting memories. 

Here is where you can show off your horse and share what makes them so special. Maybe you want to show off their natural movement with music or talk about their unique pedigree? Perhaps your horse has a special talent or training you would like to share?  Horses may be shown at liberty, under saddle, in costume - whatever your creative mind can think of!!! 

About Wendye:
20+ years of experience in the Arabian horse world, having worked for some of the best names in the industry for Halter, Dressage and Performance, then went on to be head trainer for Western Cross Ranch, Kehilan Arabians and Toskhara Arabians for several years at each farm before going out on her own and beginning Solstice Training Center, LLC. "Solstice" represents change, and that is what she has set out to do -- change the way sending your horse out to a trainer is viewed. Personalized communication, individualized training methods, each horse is treated as part of the family, a friend and partner and given the same loving care she would wish for her own horses. Owners are called, text or emailed as frequently as desired and communication is swiftly returned. It has been thought that you can not have all this and a winning, successful barn, but Wendye is proving "them" wrong, with National accolades in Dressage, Sport Horse and Halter, her Amateurs and Youth having won Nationally in Dressage, Halter, Western and Hunter Pleasure. She is also strongly advocating the new Western Dressage division and invites anyone out to take a lesson and give it a try!

The horse comes first, and the difference is undeniable in your horse's lasting foundation in training, obvious enjoyment of their job and the partnership and enhanced communication you will feel with your horse while you bring home those roses! One of Wendye's forte's is marketing and selling horses because of her enthusiasm with matching the right horse and person for a lifetime bond, and absolute honesty.

Wendye began her love of horses with Morgans and Andalusians before moving into Arabians and enthusiastically  accepts both these breeds for training and showing as well as any breed whose owner would like a kind, individualized and solid foundation or empathetic finish for a lifetime partnership!
