Midnight Rose Equestrian

Horse Training

We offer horse training with programs customized for your horses needs. Horses in full training are worked five days a week, one session a week may be substituted for lesson with owner at no extra charge. We offer training out of the beautiful Johnson's South Sound Equestrian Facility in Rochester, WA.

Training practices are consistent, patient and made to be easy for the horse to understand. All horses begin their education with a solid foundation on the ground before progressing to saddle work. Dressage fundamentals are used to help develop horses into strong, responsive, and supple mounts regardless of if they are gamers, western pleasure horses, or trail mounts. Maria encourages owners to be involved in the training progress so as to build a strong relationship between horse and rider.

Maria has experience in the following areas:

~Natural horsemanship


~Western Riding


~starting over fences

~Lower level Dressage

~Problem horses


~English and Western Pleasure

~Hunter Under Saddle

~Much more.....
