PROGRAMS TAILORED TO HORSE’S INDIVIDUAL NEEDS

TRAINING RATES

Blue Clover Eventing is fortunate to offer a variety of training packages to any horse or rider at Sudley Farm. All horses receive individual programs tailored to their specific needs so we can provide top of the line care and have you and your horse feeling and performing at your best! On top of regular board, each horse purchases a monthly training package that consists of sessions interchangeable between lessons or rides. These sessions last approximately 30 minutes (we like to end on a good note!) and in general this schedule applies Monday-Friday, from 9 -5. Additional arrangements can be made for lessons that need to start early or finish late. Weekends are prioritized as competition days, although if we aren’t in the heart of competition season weekend lessons and rides may be available. If you have a sales horse in full training, we are available every day to show your horse to potential buyers. If you are a potential buyer, come any day to take a look at what we have!

From spring thru fall, one session each month occurs at no extra charge on the cross country schooling course. Any additional cross country sessions require additional payment to Sudley Farm.

Contact Valerie for specific a la carte items and prices.

SESSION PACKAGE RATES

  • Four Star Plan — 20 sessions/month = $45/session = $900/month
  • Three Star Plan  12 sessions/month = $60/session = $720/month
  • Two Star Plan  8 sessions/month = $70/session = $560/month
  • One Star Plan  4 sessions/month = $80/session = $320/month
  • 1 A la carte Session — $85

Sessions are interchangeable between lessons and rides. Packages are good for 1 month, beginning the 1st of the calendar month. Additional a la carte services are available with packages to customize each plan to your needs.

The Four Star Plan is interchangeable with full training and nearly full service! This plan is designed for horses and riders with serious competition goals. Horses are trained 5 days a week and receive any additional therapies, from wrapping to icing to alternative therapies, at no additional cost. Riders in full training have the option of having their horses groomed, tacked, studded, etc. before or after their lessons. Additionally there are no coaching or competition fees associated with the Four Star Plan.

With the other plans, Valerie expects to stay in full communication with the clients as to what their needs and goals are for both the short term and the long term and lessons and rides are used to best meet those goals. Lessons and rides can be added if necessary with no problem! All of the extra therapies and services included with the Four Star Plan are available a la carte for horses and riders in the One, Two, and Three Star Plans.

Please contact Valerie for full details and to help choose the best plan for you!

COMPETITION RATES

Blue Clover Eventing attends competitions big and small nearly every weekend, starting in February in Aiken, SC and typically ending in November back at Sudley Farm. We strongly encourage our training and sales horses and our students to attend field trips and competitions. Whether it be to a local combined test, a cross country schooling, or a major USEA recognized event, getting out and about is great for education and confidence at all levels!

  • A competition ride costs $50/day
  • Coaching at a competition is $25/phase or $50/full day.

For boarding and training, please see the Rates page. For a full list of credentials, please visit the Highlights page.

Please don’t hesitate to contact Valerie about any questions you may have or special circumstances.

SHIPPING FEES

We don’t ever want a horse or a student to miss out on a field trip or competition due to their inability to ship their own horse.

  • Short distance shipping is billed at a flat fee of $20 per horse.
  • Long distance shipping is billed at $1/mile. When possible, a discounted flat fee applies (competitions that are several hundred miles away, and the trip to and from Aiken for example).

COMMISSIONS FOR HORSES BOUGHT AND SOLD

Sales horse must be in full training in order to be sold through Blue Clover Eventing (Click here to see Horses for Sale)
