Welcome to Iron Horse Equestrian Centre
Iron Horse Equestrian Centre is a facility dedicated to the training of horses of all disciplines. We specialize in connecting horses and their owners on a relational level most only dream of. With the use of a non-resistance training approach developed by Canadian Horseman Chris Irwin
we are able to deal with any issues that can arise. Tom is a certified trainer endorsed by Chris Irwin to teach and train with this methodology. We enjoy starting young horses and restarting or re-training horses that have been labeled problem horses.
We teach a classical style of English riding based on dressage fundamentals and horsemanship skills including leading, lunging, long lining and groundwork.
Through clinics and private instruction we are involved in educating horse enthusiasts in the value of “Training before schooling”. Whether the goal is hunter, jumper, dressage, western pleasure, reining or the trails all horses need to be happy, supple and relaxed in their work. We help them find balance and a calm, confident work ethic. Respect and trust are the foundations for all training at Iron Horse Equestrian Centre.
