Training Programs:

We offer a boutique training program where riders and horses receive individualized attention to enhance development focusing on jumpers, equitation, eventing, and dressage. We also believe that owners should have a direct hand in the care, training, and maintenance of their horses. At Schwarzer Sporthorses, we seek to provide guidance through horse care and ownership, while valuing your input and insights. Believing that knowledge is power, students are encourage to be very hands-on in the horse care process.

Developing riders who are also well-rounded in horsemanship is one of our top priorities. Cross-training is incredibly important for developing well-rounded athletes and horses and we encourage students to explore multiple disciplines.

Leasing:

For those interested in showing but not quite ready to commit to ownership, we try to provide flexible lease terms to dedicated riders. Please contact us for more details on these options.

Riding Lessons:

While we no longer provide once-a-week lesson options, we can recommend several programs in the area to serve your needs.

Work Exchange Program:

This program is available for students who lease or own a horse in the barn. Students can assist in barn chores in exchange for credit towards lessons. In order to be eligible, students must show commitment to the program, a good attitude, as well as maintain good grades in school. This is an excellent opportunity for students to earn additional lessons.

 Testimonials:  " I recommend Sarah Phaklides who teaches [my daughter]. She's awesome. She is very encouraging yet strict, and really stresses the importance of discipline, patience, and appreciation in horse back riding and life!!"  Robin N. Happy Mom     "My off-track thoroughbred has become more balanced, relaxed, and open since we've been training with Sarah in only a few months than he has in a few years with other trainers. His topline development was one of the first things i noticed in the first few weeks, in addition to his overall willingness. As, for me, Sarah's patience and clarity is a godsend! And, I have gained confidence because I have because I a stronger foundation and that has made me a for independent rider and I'm having more fun. Isn't that what its all about?"  Laura A. My OTTB
