What the clients say…

Rating: 5 out of 5.

“I absolutely love Alivio!”

It’s hands down the best place to not only learn about horses and their behavior and how to work with them properly, but also the best place to discover yourself. I have been going there for 4 years and will continue to do so for many more! Highly recommend!!! – Laura

“Tina is the best!”

She works very hard to help the people she is working with understand the horse. She ensures the horse is being worked properly to improve the horse’s life and your experience. Definitely recommend!! Catherine

Training

“A well-balanced, trained horse will succeed in any discipline.”

All horses are born with a crookedness. To improve their rhythm, biomechanics, behavior, balance and cooperation, they need to be educated. Classical training can improve their obedience, reliability and flexibility, and ensures that the horse has a solid foundation to build on.

We offer a range of training services built to the needs of you and your horse to help you achieve the results you’re after. Not sure what you need, or what it costs? Contact us for an evaluation.

Sales & Breeding

We offer extremely educated, sane, balanced, and sound horses for sale at Alivio. Taking our time to raise and train them properly, they receive individualized care, proper handling, and balanced trims.

We achieve this with work in hand, proper lunge work, balance-improving lateral work, and a training program tailored to their needs and the needs of their potential owner.

Tina Ann Legno

Founder & Owner
A lifetime devoted to the well being of our equine friends

Tina Legno has devoted her life to the preservation of the art of horsemanship. She began her life with horses at the age of 5 at her parents small horse farm in Western New York. She pursued her education from every reputable trainer, clinician and horseman that she could. Always searching for answers to improve her riding connections and her horses’ performance.

Tina started her own teaching and training business in 1993. Improving the balance and lives of every horse that came to her – whether it was behavior, balance, soundness, or trust – while providing the owner the details to maintain it. In 1995, Tina began using Classical Dressage Principles, from the teachings of Nuno Oliveira. Studying under Bettina Drummond for several years, forming her as a rider and trainer, she continues her teaching and training methods in the classical manner.
