Fun fact!


We all know how contagious yawning is. Just reading this right now you’re fighting back the urge to yawn. It’s ok I’ll give you a minute because, I too, am at the mercy of this funny reaction!

Alright now we are ready! So, why do horses yawn? They are not actually tired. They are releasing endorphins after built up stress from an event or training. This means they are relaxing and decompressing. Yawning also helps them if they aren’t getting enough oxygen just like us it’s an subconscious reaction in order to bring oxygen levels up. So don’t worry, yawning is a good thing!

I specialize in problem horses, youngsters, horse rehabilitation and achieving softness and a better relationship between horse and their rider. I not only train horses but humans as well. Not your typical riding lesson but I can, if you so choose, teach you to train your horse! I’m always available to help answer questions or share photos or videos upon request to better illustrate my advice. I’ve mastered the “don’t break the bank” way of keeping your horse healthy and cared for while on a budget. If you walk into almost any large barn in Oregon you’re bound to meet a horse I trained or sold! I’ve trained over 623 horses and counting! I post updates as I receive them from clients and buyers. Thank you for taking the time to browse and hopefully learn something new!
