Suzin Daly taking a quick break between lessonsINSTRUCTION

Suzin Daly's home base is Halifax Farm.  Many riders trailer in for instruction and she also travels to local farms working with riders.

Boarding barns over 20 miles can organize mini clinic with Suzin of 4 or more riders.

Suzin works with riders of all levels and ages. In today's life style of immediate gratification working with horses takes systematic training and that takes time. There are no quick fixes. Many riders train with Suzin for competition and there are those riders that train for the passion of learning.

If you have a passion to learn and willing to work hard, Suzin Daly is the trainer for you.

Training of horses cannot be rushed. Systematic training leads to consistency. Horses of all ages and levels need to understand what is expected of them.  By limiting the number of horses in training allows the time to meet the need of each horse.

Riley arrived at Halifax Farm for training July, 2005. Riley at 3 1/2 years had no training. Starting from ground training to under saddle Riley excelled easily due to his kind temperament and trainability. With only seven weeks of training he was presented for his 3 year old performance test at the 2005 Swedish Inspection. Patrick and Tanya where thrilled when Riley earned Diploma status with a score of 9. Riley had won his 3 year old division colt/gelding class two weeks earlier at the Raleigh Breed Show.

Lara Katz riding PookahDRESSAGE Instruction

Suzin Daly's goal is to produce elegant and effective riders on supple and responsive horses. Students work to develop a sense of feel to develop the ability to communicate to their horse. Training of riders is like the training of horses in that it takes time and patience. Training of riders cannot be rushed and each person grows and developes their skill in their own time.

Sid Corn and Bella 17.1+ thoroughbred mare with great heart

Sidney Corn and Bella

Sid is very ambitious in developing her riding skills and welcomed a different approach to training Bella. Suzin felt it would be best to step back and develop stronger basics in Bella who tended to get strong after a jump and run after her changes. Sid found herself back to cavelletti's and cross bars. There where lots of none jumping days with suppling work, schooling figures and transitions.

Sid will be returning home for the month of December with Bella for winter school break. The last week before leaving Sid asked Suzin to ride Bella. Sid wanted to have the chance to see Bella go. After about half hour Suzin suggested that Sid jump up and see how Bella feels. Sid could definitely feel the difference and made the request for Suzin to ride and then her job would be to feel the difference and maintain it.  Sid understands the important's of the development of the horse and realized first hand with slow systematic training you can improve on horses balance and help them understand what is expected of them. The month of December will give Sid the chance to build her confidence to maintain and continue to develop Bella's knowledge. Suzin looks forward to having Sid and Bella back in January.

Sid lives with her family in Wilmington North Carolina. They have a 50 acre farm where they board horses. Mr. and Mrs. Corn are Baltic Collection members. They have helped toward world domination by breeding two wonderful mares to Sundance producing Lady Baltic (AKA Lilly) and Perona who has Gold Medal Olympic lines through the dam's side by Peron.
