Whitehedge Farm Services

Training Services Offered

Whitehedge Farm specializes in the starting and training of  ponies, young hunters and jumpers.  Horses are normally started undersaddle at age 3 in a classical manner. Care is taken to achieve good manners, balance, and retain a trainable and pleasant attitude about each horses work.  Anne Hedge has been starting young horses in this manner for over 15 years, and has developed a program that produces sound and confident winners in the ring. Once they are confidently going undersaddle, horses are trail ridden and shipped to various local horse shows and events. When horse leave our starting program at Whitehedge Farm, they are normally ready to start showing in the baby green hunters.

We also take older horses on consignment that may need further local show miles or training. We also accept mares and young horses that need prepped and conditioned for mare inspections for various warmblood registries, mare performance tests and stallion tests. Anne has special interest and experience with stallions and young colts, and can also train them for semen collection.
