Welcome to Avalon Performance Horse and Rider Support

An Educational Resource for Equine Owners, Competitors and Support Team. We offer online courses with a wealth of online and print resources to support the health and physical comfort of both horse and rider.

WHAT WE HOPE FOR:

  • The rider....

    To the extent possible should feel clear headed, rested, free of pain, with a soft back, with spine and hips in the best alignment possible, and adequate core strength.

  • The horse....

    To the extent possible should be fit, well nourished, free of pain, rested, and anxiety free.

  • The family...

    The expenses are high, and the commitment and desire are tremendous. We want to support you in putting your family first so that this is a healthy activity for the entire family that keeps the resource commitment in balance.
