Weston Equine Sales and Re-homing Services
Do you have a horse that you would like to sell, but don't have the time or energy? Let Alison spend the time it takes to find your horse an appropriate new home. Sale horses are fitted and tuned up to show to prospective buyers. Pictures and quality videos are taken and used in advertising to show each individual horse's attributes. Horse and rider match making is a priority. Thought is taken in considering the horse buyer's experience, knowledge, and expectations and matching them with the appropriate horses' disposition and training level. The goal is to find them permanent homes, not just sell them to the highest bidder. Sales will only take place after owner approval. Building long-term horse/rider relationships is the goal! References can be provided of clients that have found their perfect match via Alison.
Depending on space availability, they also accept horses who are, or will be homeless at no fault of their own. Whatever the reason may be (financial hardship, relocation,etc.) the Westons can sometimes (if room allows) accept these equines and rehab them back to healthy, happy horses and find them great homes. Horses needing some training/tune-ups are OK.

The horsemanship Alison exhibits is based on respect, feel, patience, and helping the horse function in sound form, both body and mind. She will forever be a student of the horse and believes they are the greatest teachers. She looks to the philosophies of Dorrance, Hunt, and Brannaman, and those that have learned from them, for inspiration and guidance in her journey. Things that are not part of Alison's repertoire include; getting a horse to a pre-determined training "level" by a pre-determined time, use of martingales, tie downs, draw reins, bigger bits, etc, working with horses in a way that causes them to travel biomechanically incorrect (forcing an un-natural frame), and training horses to travel in untrue gaits.
Alison is an official Recommended Clinician Level 1 for the Cowboy Dressage Professionals Association.
UPDATE for 2015/2016 from Alison- "At this time, I am decreasing my availability to take on outside horses for training. It has been a tug of war for me between my passions; my family and helping folks with their horses where I can. I have realized my girls will not be little forever, but that there will always be horses that are in need of some help and owners that are in a tight spot. I am devoting more time to my family and my personal horses, only taking 2 outside horses in at a time, and providing limited lessons during the school year. Thank you all for your support and understanding!"
