AU Service Mounts — At 6 months, the weanlings learn to develop a calm, respectful disposition to handlers and others,  and go through extensive ground training. As yearlings, they are desensitized to more casual, common touch (like that of a farrier) and then sensitized to various cues and pressures.

At 2 years of age, the horses are put under saddle and trained in both English and Western tack. They learn to respond to light cues, including leg pressure and seat position, and collect at walk, trot and canter.

By age 3, obstacles become a fun way for the horse to learn (and trust the handler) in what would typically be a frightening situation. They are trained to go over, under and through a variety of obstacles (on a variety of surfaces). Horses ride in parades, in town and exhibitions as they begin to desensitize to city life.
