Our Training Program:

The American Dream Farm Training Program believes in the basic fundamentals of gentling a horse by teaching the horse to use his hind end properly to strenthen his topline and use his front end through balance and suppleness. We use a soft hand and teach horses to understand reward by giving to pressure. Lateral work and resistance free training is encorperated into our training to teach a horse to ride off the riders seat and legs and gain a soft mouth. 

We take pride in the results of our training system as we have trained all of our American Paint Horses for lessons and showing. Tess Smith specializes in finishing horses for pleasure, framing and cadence. Specific horse show specialties include showmanship at halter, hunter under saddle, huntseat equitation,  western horsemanship and western riding. Whether you want to have your horse finished to make a nice trail and pleasure horse or you would like to have your horse finished to compete in the open show ring Tess can help you. ADF offers on site and off site training sessions for your horse and for you and your horse together.

If you have a round pen or arena Tess can come to you for sessions. If you do not have a facility for training you can haul your horse in for training sessions. Contact Monique at 770-634-9354 or Monique@americandreamfarm.net for more information regarding training openings and training contract. Please note all horses being hauled in must be fully vaccinated and provide negative coggins.
