I have found from experience that it is best for our horses to leave us between a yearling and 18 months old. We have found with older horses, particuarly if we continue their training they become too bonded and it is not fair on them. At this younger age they seem to handle the change better and accept new things. It is valuable if the new owner can bond with the horse before it leaves us. To that end, CSS offers a special arrangement so that you can stay with us and learn what has gone into your horses development.
