Birdwood Horse Works
Our minimum weekly rate is $450.00 per/week. We require accounts to be paid weekly or fortnightly. All accounts to be settled in FULL prior to the horse leaving.
These charges are for Pleasure and Performance horses including ex-Racehorses.
All horses are worked Monday to Friday and weekends off. Owners who work during the week can see their horses progress either week nights or Saturdays by "appointment only".
NOTE: "At any time" your horse is in or out of the round yard doing ground work or being ridden while you are observing, this is counted as your horse being worked
CHECK LIST BEFORE BRINGING YOUR HORSE FOR EDUCATION

Be wormed within the previous 2 weeks

Teeth and hooves - It is important for your horses teeth to be seen by a dentist or vet prior to education, as accepting a bit can be uncomfortable if teeth are not in good order. Hooves should be recently trimmed or shod. These can be arranged if required and incur additional cost.
NOTE: if your horse is injured, sick or merely needs a rest during its stay, general resting agistment costs will occur.
