At JumpStart Training, we specialize in developing tailored programs designed for each client. That said, we are capable of serving a wide variety of horses and riders.
We have experience working with all types of horses and ages from starting the new greenie or kid-trained pony to helping the amateur with their gentle giant to keeping the hot show horse schooled. Furthermore, we have the experience and patience necessary to successfully restart/rehabilitate your horse, along with supportive care to facilitate a successful outcome.
Trainer will take complete care of Horse including but not limited to regulating proper daily feed, turnout, grooming, and exercise. Horse will be checked daily for health issues and treated as needed.
Full Training includes lunging, warm-up, grooming, additional turnout/handwalks, feeding, medicating, equipment fees, scheduling/holding for the vet or farrier, and all other maintenance and training services without individual or extra charges.
Added charges to expect are cost of necessary feed/grain, supplies, and laundry
Additional Services (training rides or lessons) can be purchased at a discounted rate.
Half Training is a good value if you are more “hands-on,” whereas the Full Training program is a much better deal for those who want more trainer involvement.
The Half Training program has less flexibility than full training, as it is more a la carte. Additional services beyond those included, such as feed preparation and purchase, holding for vet/farrier, or applying sprays or medical treatment, will be charged separately. Missed lessons are automatically replaced with training rides. No refunds or credits.
While JumpStart offers pre-created full and half training , we are accustomed to operating where boxes don't exist. In these special circumstances, which come our way often, we count on our unique blend of innovation, dedication, experience and grit to lead the way. We will custom tailor a program just for you that provides the services and care that you and your horse desire.

Lesson Horses Available
Adults and Children Welcome
The JumpStart Lesson Program is for the student who does not own a horse.
We have lessons and appropriate horses available for a full range of students, including those who have never ridden before all the way up to seasoned equestrians. We generally start regular lessons at ages 6 and up, but we offer grooming and leadlines for younger pupils. Don’t be fooled that you have to be a child to start riding though-Kiri and her horses love starting adults and making their childhood dreams come true!
Every Lesson is taught with consistency, patience, and understanding. Students will learn how to ride correctly and methodically with no short cuts. Our program is comprehensive, which gives every rider a solid foundation to become well-rounded Equestrians. Safety, sportsmanship, and good horsemanship are the top priority and students will also learn all aspects of horse care and education.
We also offer horsemanship lessons (unmounted) which teach specific topics of horse care and ground work-exemplary for students wanting to buy or lease a horse or become a working student in the future.
We have quality, well-trained lesson horses available all with unique personalities and talents. Each rider is appropriately paired with one of our wonderful teachers each lesson but if you start to develop a deeper bond with one, they sometimes are available to discuss purchase.
At JumpStart Training, customization is the norm.
HORSES AS THERAPY
Earlly in her career, JumpStart Trainer and Owner, Kiri Farler-Smith spent many hours at Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center. She took a special interest in helping riders with autism spectrum disorders.
Kiri is a driven competitor who loves the thrill of hunter/jumpers. That said, her time at Little Bit helped shape much of her current riding program. She spent the last 8 years working with a very unique horse and rider team, both of which were high performance athletes before suffering significant life changing injuries independent of one another. Using riding as a healing modality, this student maintained a custom training program for the entire time that she worked with Kiri.
Ultimately, all programs are custom tailored. That said, we are pleased to offer a lesson plan that focuses on more “therapy-related” goals as opposed to a competitive sports mindset.
Note: We are not a PATH certified riding center.
Jumpstart’s Trainer and Owner Kiri Farler-Smith is pleased to offer private coaching at shows locally and out of state, depending upon the goal of the individual client. Furthermore, Kiri is available to provide custom lessons/training at the client’s facility of choice or private property. Contact us to discuss your needs directly with Kiri.
FACILITATION OF SALE/LEASE
When the time comes, Kiri Farler-Smith will facilitate the lease/purchase of your equine partner leveraging extensive networks, expertise in matching horse/rider teams, and experience working with all budgets. Note that lesson horses are available for full or partial lease in-barn. Furthermore, if desired, your horse can be marketed by JumpStart for lease or purchase.
