Buying a horse over the Internet, across the country, sight-unseen can be a daunting
task. I was originally looking for a young horse to start on my own that had nice
conformation, a gentle disposition, good bloodlines and something with potential.
When I found "Spoon" on barrelhorseworld.com, he was more than I was looking for
with more training than I was expecting. But with the videos Jodi made for me and
the time we spent chatting, I knew he'd been started right and I had faith in them
both. Spoon came to me with a great riding foundation. He had been broke out and
started on barrels very nicely. He was a pleasure to ride and to be around, having
great ground manners, and only needed to be finished and hauled. Even though that
I had been looking for a horse I could train myself... I really lucked out with having
him started as nicely as he was. Jodi did a great job and I wouldn't change a thing!

Training & Sales
I have had Jodi Price with Rivers Edge Farm ride three horses for me.
The first mare
had been a trail horse and I had her started on the barrels. The mare had no bend/flex
and was very dull. After Jodi worked with my mare for 14 days she had an excellent
stop and back, was side passing, and loping a nice barrel pattern. I was amazed how
light and responsive she was after just 14 days both in the saddle and on the ground!
After having such a good experience with my first mare I decided to have her take
my four year old mare, that had also been a trail horse, and teach her the basics.
I again was very impressed with my mare when she returned home. She was bending/flexing,
had an excellent stop and back, was side passing, and was very light and responsive.
I ending up sending this mare back the following year for barrel training. After
30 days she was loping a very nice barrel pattern.
Currently, my three year old gelding
is being started under saddle and I am sure he will come back home riding just as
nice as my mares.
Overall I have been very impressed with the way Jodi handles the
horses, especially the young ones, and the way she adapts her training approach to
achieve a positive result with each horse she works with. I was also very pleased
with the care my horses received while at Rivers Edge Farm, they all returned home
in excellent condition. Jodi gave me frequent updates on their progress and was very
honest about each horses ability and potential.
I would highly recommend Jodi Price
as a trainer; she is very honest, does a great job and is easy to work with.
