Clearwater Training Stables
Familiar with all types of steeds, trainer Rebecca Snavely trains horses for full-fledged careers in ranch work, dressage, or jumping. Rebecca brings her talents to starting horses under the saddle, accommodating young ones with a place in the stable and plenty of hay and grain ($18/day). After a 30-day stay, Clearwater’s horses can stand quietly to mount and dismount, stop, back, and turn while exhibiting good ground manners and offering to escort ladies across muddy puddles. Horses can shack up at Clearwater ($180–$280/month) in comfort, since quarters are cleaned and bedded each day with shavings. Long-faced tenants neigh with glee at a diet of 14% protein sweet feed and hearty, quality hay while enjoying accommodations in a stall with a run, box stall, or semiprivate turnout.
