Join Martin Douzant & Joe DeSantis for a jump chute clinic at Loch Moy Farm's INDOOR ARENA focused on free jumping, in-hand work and other training skills. This clinic will fill quickly- don't delay!

Martin Douzant and Joe DeSantis are popular young horse trainers that work extensively with sport horses of all disciplines. When not training or competing young horses, they are routinely found at the Young Horse Show Series as the designated jump chute horse handlers. Based out of Brook Hill Farm in Middleburg, Virginia, Martin has a positive teaching style and has extensive experience with green horses and riders. This is a great opportunity to learn from one of the best in the sport!

Using a jump chute is the ideal introduction to jumping for young horses, OTTB's coming off the track, or to work through issues with experienced jumpers. All you need to bring is your horse in a halter (or bridle if you prefer) and your phone/camera to get great pictures and video.

Martin's approach emphasizes a clear and consistent framework for young horse development ground in the European method. Originally from France, he has earned France’s official BEES First Degree certification, the essential French riding instructor certification.

“When you watch horses free jump and do gymnastics you see that each has their own style… they prepare their balance in their own way. The goal of a jump chute is to guide horses is learning how to use their bodies...and enable them to progress mentally and physically in a positive way."
