With our small and functional facilities we are able to cater to each individual broodmare to ensure their health, contentment and a healthy foal.
Sales Prep and Handling
At Cordelia Stables, we believe that consistent handling and attention provides a foundation that will benefit the horse throughout its life and future training. Early on we teach our horses the pleasure of being groomed, hand walked and interacting with people.
Sales prep yearlings are hand walked daily for excersice as well as groomed and bathed daily in order to get them in their best condition for the sales. To ensure their safety leading up to the sale they are turned out in private paddocks where they can enjoy time outside of the stall in a safe environment.
As rising 2 year olds our horses are exposed to bridling, saddling and lunging in a round pen before they start training with a rider. When the horse is comfortable with these steps they are backed slowly until they have excepted the weight of a rider. This provides our young horses with an important foundation before they begin their formal training under saddle.
Lay Up and Rehab Care
The barn layout and atmosphere at Cordelia Stables provides the perfect atmosphere for horses recovering from an injury. Each stall allows the horses to see throughout the barn minimulizing anxiety and stress to horses confined to stall rest. Horses progressing in their recovery can be slowly habitualized back into turnout with the option of both a small and large roundpen, as well as small individual paddocks.
