We are very proud of our string of lesson horses and ponies here at Movado!
Our lesson horses are carefully selected to provide our students with opportunities to ride and train safely with equine partners who like their job and work with a wide variety of riders.
Lesson and lease horses are treated with the same care and respect shown the fanciest show horses. They have ample turnout to keep them happy and healthy; stalls bedded with shavings; folks who keep them looking show-ready, and regular visits from top veterinarians for maintenance and medical care. Many started their careers as show ponies and horses, and they are all available for lease or half-lease.
We are proud to unveil our "Road to the Finals" lease program debuting in 2020! Movado Farms Inc. is very proud of our continued success in the show ring and many of our riders have been champions at Finals including CHSA, CHJA, FWPHA, & MHC.
Using our unparalleled ability to match horse with rider, we will work with individual riders to create a customized strategy of lessons and will help students set goals for their summer.
Our "Road to Finals" program will set you on the path to success! CALL TODAY for more information!
