Training

We offer a variety of training services ranging from starting youngsters from scratch to providing horses of all ages with show experience to putting finishing touches on already experienced show horses. Our trainer, Mary Jane Whitcomb has over 25 years experience breaking and training horses. MJ has a talent for treating each horse as an individual and for relating to their mounts in a way that brings out the very best in each horse. With her expert training and the assistance of our other capable riders, Biscuit Hill consistently turns out well-behaved, confident horses that know what is expected of them.

Our training philosophy is based on the principle that horses have individual personalities and ways of learning. A trainer must be able understand these differences and adapt training methods to suit the horse. This individualized approach to training, coupled with our generous turnout schedule, results in well-adjusted horses with generous attitudes. This philosophy is incorporated into all aspects of barn life including lessons, horse care and handling and the training of young horses. We evaluate each horse and rider on an individual level, understanding that each situation may require a different approach. The response by both horses and riders has been very positive.
