Full or partial training from green to Grand Prix is available at our main base, Locks Edge, in Poolesville, Maryland. The facility’s small size (16 stalls) allows for individualized attention and care. We offer customizable training packages that allow for any combination of training rides and lessons.
Siobhan’s primary goal when training horses is to develop them in a fair and ethical way that nurtures their spirit and unique personality. Through multi-faceted, systematic training, she seeks to produce willing partners while remaining appreciative of their individual strengths, and mindful of their weaknesses.
Siobhan takes a systematic approach to training that respects each horse as an individual. She is a big believer in working outside of the arena for cross-training and to keep horses happy and fresh. Locks Edge provides plenty of room for hacking and hill work. In addition to work in the arena, training sessions may include longeing/long-lining, work in hand, and work over cavaletti or small jumps, depending on each horse’s needs.
Siobhan enjoys working with a wide variety of breeds, and is happy to help any horse develop into the best they can be. She is a sensitive and sympathetic rider with experience riding everything from breeding stallions to young horses, horses over 18 hands to ponies under 14 hands.
