Hint Of Gold aka Ghost

This stout guy is a light palomino that is gradually darkening up after owner body clipped him. Not papered, but seems well gaited, just a little high headed. Probably a walker or foxtrotter cross. He has a nice steady gait, that is smooth and fun to ride. He is a bit head shy due to his being purchased at an auction, but he will easily let you bridle and halter him. He is just a bit shy of you throwing up hands, etc at him when on the ground. He has been here for over 4 months and has responded well to being handled correctly every day. Not spooky under saddle, but is still finding his comfort zone in hand.

Disciplines, Arenas & All the Activities

For our lessons, we have many disciplines and arenas to work. Dressage Arena, Jumping Field, Hunter, Western Pleasure Flat Arena to work, Competitive Trail course and Lovely Trails, Specialty of Many Gaited Horse gaits, Barrels and speed event working area. I have personally studied, trained, shown and offer instruction in these disciplines and more.

Sinatra or Ringos Escape is a B/W SSH Gelding

Sinatra as he is known is a really fancy 15 + hand Black and White Spotted Saddle Gelding with the Brightest Blue Eyes you have ever seen. He has show training and experience, but we have him barefoot and working on the trails. He is 8 years old and still a little unfocused, but he is quickly learning a great work ethic and handle what comes his way. Flat walk, running walk, rack and a great canter! Stands to mount and dismount, ties and cross ties, clips easily including his ears, loads, works well with the farrier, working on ground tying. Soft mouth. Leg pressure, working on neck reining. He wants so much to have someone of his own. Present owner is looking for something more lazy!

 Training and Boarding 

Boarding can be a difficult choice. In choosing a horse boarding facility, there are many important things to consider and compare. Amenities, quality of care, knowledgeable handling and management, caring, and location. At Glover's Equestrian Center and Stables, we try to make it an easier choice by understanding that these are your babies and that all aspects of their lives are important. We show that in our cleanliness, safety, and careful management of the horses and their atmosphere. We take pride that most clients come out to our facilities and sigh...saying it is so peaceful out here. That their horses are so settled and comfortable. When you add up the cost vs benefits and value, the experience, professional care and all the extras with Glover's, there is no comparison.

 How we work 

Glover's is a family owned and operated farm that works with you and your horse! We look to help each and every person and horse...because each is different. And we work with each one that way. But Fun is key!!! Everything about horses is work...so if you are not having fun it will be a short lived endeavour.

We have extensive experience in training and teaching others how to understand horses, their gaits and talents. I work hard to make my lessons easy to understand and not a new job!

Let our family welcome you to the incredible world of horses. We love them and promote that love to all others. You don't have to be born into the family, just love horses as much as we do.

 Our experience 

I have been riding all my life. I have successfully shown at Barrels and Gaming events, Dressage - classic, western and gaited, Jumping, Hunter, Gaited saddleseat on a National Level, Trail Obstacle, Western Pleasure, some low level reining and cow work. 

I have been professionally training a multitude of disciplines since 1999 here when I and my parents opened Glover's Stables. I have been the Trainer and Instructor. 

I am certified with the CHA organization and am certified in Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation with muscle massage and rehab work.

I still take my own learning seriously and have an instructor working with me on Dressage. A discipline that I utilize with all my training and instruction as I feel it starts with balance and movement.

Get in now with your training and lessons to be ready to impress the judges in the ring or just yourself on the trail!

 Focuses for this year 

I am Excited about 2018!!! This is a NEW year for Glover's with all the new therapies and Clinics I am scheduling. I am getting some personal horses ready for showing in dressage and Hunter, Gaited Dressage. Our competitive Trail Obstacle Course Is Open for those who want to explore their teamwork with their horse, call me to set up a date for you and your group.  Iwill be setting up Obstacle course Events Soon for 2018, check back to the events page over the next couple of weeks for all the great happenings! Hunter/Jumping shows are starting, so sign up for lessons to get you to the level you want. Plus I will be able to help others enjoy this gift from the heavens!!!

 The most rewarding thing 

Nothing is more rewarding than seeing a horse and rider truly enjoy all that is out there for them as a team. Seeing the confidence we help instill in each horse owner and rider come out with each challenge that they meet is a thrill.

Come out and let all the stress go from the day to day world...

Yes, it is work, but it is so personally rewarding with each and every step. As each team reaches another goal or overcomes a hurdle the smiles just naturally appear. As trainers, instructors and sometimes counselors we have the privilege to see every step of progress & each and every smile.

 Our Goal For Horses that We Market For Sale 

We have put our knowledge and time into giving that personal touch and confidence that we try to instill in all of our horses. Personality, manners, workable training, exposure to as many challenges as we can to get each horse ready for a new owner. Not all are ours, many are clients whose lives have changed and do not include their beloved horses anymore. It is a painful loss to each owner and we try to find the best home possible for their babies!

 Get to know us and meet our horses 

Come out and get to know us and meet our horses. Watch a lesson and judge if I am an instructor that can help you.  But be ready! We are pretty passionate about our horses and what we do.

 Gaited horse clinic 

Gaited horse clinic recognize the gaits and judging gaited horses. We held our Clinic on Saturday, May 14, 2016 and it was a HIT!!! And are getting a schedule ready for our next one in the FALL.

Everyone seemed to enjoy and learn what each breed would like to see in the show ring. Some lovely gaited breeds showed up and demonstrated their lovely gaits!. We will definitely be having another one in the future.

We hope that more judges are able to come and help us build up the ability to show our gaited horse at open shows.

We had some very good questions from both the judges and the auditors. As exhibitors it was nice to be able to find out what judges are looking for and thinking. And I hope for the judges, we offered some insight into what we exhibitors would like to learn from them. After all, most open shows are schooling shows and we should take advantage of their knowledge!

Why Choose Us?

Yes! Actually a large majority of my clients are people who have fears and just don't know how to get past them. Each client and their situation is different. I work with the client and the horse to make each a better teammate that understand the other. I work in many different modalities and techniques. I have many testimonials and references that give every reassurance that people are not alone in their predicament and feelings.

I have a background that started in gaming horses with working and Ranch type of horses. I have worked with, trained, bred and raised many different breeds of gaited horses since 1995...mainly but not limited to Tennessee walking, Racking and Spotted Saddle horses, Kentucky mountain and Rocky Mountain Horses, shown and trained paso Fino and Peruvian horses, Missouri Foxtrotters just to name the most numerous. I have shown most of the breeds successfully at local, regional and national shows. I have been training at dressage for over 10 years and showing, training and giving instruction in classical, gaited and western. I have clients that I train for hunter and jumper shows successfully. I have a large number of clients that are Trail riders, trail obstacle enthusiasts and field trial exhibitors. I and my family brought the Foundation Quarter Horse Association to Florida. Helped the Rocky Mountain and Kentucky Mountain shows start here in Florida. We have ran successfully - open breed shows and open gaited shows for years here in the Pasco and Hernando counties. I have been working with and training as a CHA instructor. I am certified and work under a Homeopathic Veterinarian as a chiropractitioner of the VOM method for over 8 years. Allowing myself to identify and rehab movement inconsistencies for performance horses and riders using many modalities such as muscle massage and therapy, low level laser, Theraplate and rehabilitation exercises that strengthen the horse at the core. We have held large trail rides that raised well over $25,000.00 that we were proud to send to charities. Worked with roping and reining trainers. And all walks of clients that just loved horses no matter their limitations!

Yes I have worked with many clients with special needs. I am very safety conscious but fun at the same time. My CHA training and my work with homeopathy rehab on horses is reflected in how each person and horse is handled and taught to be safe and yet strengthen their knowledge and skills.

Yes. I spent a long time working on learning and understanding the different gaits and how they affect the rider. Allowing me to give the rider an inside perspective as to what the rider feels at each gait, makes it easier to have the student recognize it easier.
