Announcements

One week under saddle, this horse gained an incredible amount of confidence from Jose.
Donida Farm Equestrian Center proudly presents
“JOSE WINTER YOUNG HORSE PROGRAM”

World renowned young horse starter and master horsemen Jose Alejos will be returning to the Northwest at Donida Farm, Oct 15-30, 2017.

This two-week program will include a choice of three divisions.

1) “Backing”: The backing of horses with no attempts. A clean slate of no education at all. Most owners are able to come for a lesson in the second week of their horses education. Horses are broke to arenas, trails, race track, woods, as a group and by themselves.

2) “The Problem Horse”- Horses who have failed backing from previous attempts by others, or has a attitude of: bucking, rearing, bolting, trailering issues, biting striking, bullying etc. An amazing development from start to finish.

3) “Foal Training”- 4-6 months of age (or older). Foals halter training and life lessons along with weaning in a group with same sex. Low stress. Leading, clipping, bathing etc. Mothers may accompany foals during the first week. Love the babies and love them more as they become bigger.

Whatever the issue is, we can get it fixed in October.

Our Fall “Jose Program” will fill quickly as there is a limited number of horses accepted. Jose’s method is a very kind, fair way. He is a remarkable rare horseman. You will be amazed as I was when you watch him in action. His training sessions are private (with exception) to those enrolled.

His methods/bio and testimonials can be found @ WWW.JOSEALEJOS.COM.

Jose comes highly recommended by trainers, breeders, professionals and owners all over the world. Local references include:
