PROGRAMS TAILORED TO HORSE’S INDIVIDUAL NEEDS
Blue Clover Eventing is fortunate to run a full training program out of Sudley Farm. All horses in full training 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! Rest assured we take care of each and every horse as though it were our own. Each horse receives an average of 5 training sessions per week. These sessions last approximately 30 minutes (we like to end on a good note!) and are interchangeable between lessons and rides. 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!
The monthly cost to have a horse in full training with Blue Clover Eventing at Sudley Farm is $1800. 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.
The Blue Clover Eventing working students are trained to pay detailed attention on the day to day care of your horse, we take great pride in knowing that all of our horses are healthy and happy! This routine care is included in the monthly training cost, and we assure you it is second to none. The working students are able to meet all of your horse’s needs, from clipping to braiding to competition grooming. We like to look and act the part! Contact Valerie for specific a la carte items and prices.

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 $50/day (includes everything from course walks to warm ups to the analysis after the event)
Please don’t hesitate to contact Valerie about any questions you may have or special circumstances.
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).
