Old Remount Horse Age
Old remount horse is a horse of its fourth and fifth year of life (from 37th month to 60th). However, the training year for a remount horse that was born in winter or spring starts in September of its fourth year of life, which is a few months later than a month of birth for full three calendar (non-adjusted) years.
Training Program Design for your Young Horse
It does not mean, however, that once a horse is 37 months old, you pull him out of the pasture, familiarise with a stable for a week, put bit into his mouth, through a saddle on and hop on to start "breaking".
There is a 2-year period of young remount horse training and development (13-36 months) that precedes the beginning of old remount horse's first training year in that September of a 4th year. And what happens with your old remount horse largely depends on a foundation you built in your young remount horse in the previous two years.
In designing a training program for your old remount horse we take into consideration factors such as the actual date of birth, training facility, and climate. We consider these factors first, before even going in detail to team skillset (owner, handler, rider/bereuter, trainer, farrier, veterinarian), and gymnastic review for your horse itself.

We typically plan for online coaching sessions once every two weeks (bi-weekly) in a training phase to complement execution of our carefully designed Training Plan for each of the horses in your management. We track your performance in the training scorecard, which opens the worlds of possibilities for you, and at the same time narrows your focus down to a laser dot where needed, makes you accountable for it, and helps to make things happen.
