Cristin Kyle is a horsemanship trainer who believes in building trust, respect, and confidence in both horses and riders. Teaching how to build a better relationship is the foundation of her training methods. From the ground up through the saddle, she strongly believes this is the basis of safety with horses.

Working with horses and people from any discipline, she believes that your saddle choice should not change the core of your training nor should it affect your relationship with your horse. This is how she came to name her business Stable Relationships.

 

Cristin believes in continuous learning, from professionals, students, and horses. Each horse has something to contribute, as they are our best teachers. She understands and respects that both you and your horse are individuals and should be treated as such. In her opinion there is no ‘cookie-cutter’ method for every individual or horses or ‘30 day miracles’.

 

Cristin helps riders learn to better read their horses on the ground, from head to tail – there is a lot to be said in their expressions alone. This transfers to saddle work as well, and helps build a more responsive horse. As well as creating more confidence as a rider, or horse and rider team. She also teaches riders to feel their subtle movements as often as possible to create a better release point, horses learn from the release of pressure and riders should learn to give to a horse as quickly as possible.

Breaking down the more complicated tasks for you and your horse to bring it back to a place where you both can be successful, are the building blocks for success. Cristin wants you to leave feeling better about yourself, your horse, and both of your abilities combined, whether it is through her training, a clinic or a riding lesson on one of her horses.

Cristin is based in a beautiful horse region with easy access to the Triad and surrounding areas. Cristin travels throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and surrounding states.

Thank you for your time and consideration. If you would like additional information or have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Cristin and her team.

Farrier's Fix Hoof Oil has been a game changer for myself and my horses. It has helped toughen their hooves, prevent thrush, treat and prevent cracks with my flat footed horse and so much more. In addition it has helped me with sore and tender hooves in the past. My friend of many years introduced it to me, and I believe even gifted me my first bottle. I'm thankful she did as it has truly helped keep my horses' feet in great condition! I love how easily it can be applied to the whole hoof including the frog, which it also aids in moisturizing, it has a pleasant smell and it really works. You do not have to have a horse with problem hooves to use their product either, just apply roughly three times a week to a clean hoof and you will see and feel a real difference in your horses' hooves too!

Just click their logo to go to their website for more information!

If you have ever had the need for an all around supplement for your horse - including but not limited to one that helps with join support, coat, mane and tail, hooves and so much more then you should consider Grand Meadows Grand Premium Plus! After trying an initial supply they gave me for an opportunity and seeing those results I quickly ordered more of the same and continued it. My horse with shivers actually stopped having as severe of a case (which was not even on the spectrum as a possibility), another horse began looking and feeling better! I can't wait to update you all on continued progress with this supplement. I would love to hear from anyone who has used their products.

If you have a horse who has trouble with thrush, white line disease, cracking or splitting hooves due to infection or bacteria you need to check out Grooms Hand Thrush Solution! It is easy to use, apply and handle! They have instructional videos on their website to help you furthermore, but it can be sprayed from any angel and is quite effective.

 

Personally I use it to treat anything that comes up and as a preventative too! It is amazing, simple and easy to use, doesn't have a bad smell (like some other products), is easy to apply, the hoof pick is handy and I know it works! I have been using it for roughly a year with great success treating thrush and for seedy toe in one horse!
