Ditch the saddle! Your horse is your gym!

Bareback is a great way to improve your seat, your fitness and your balance! It’s great to also be in close contact with your horse.

Without the saddle between you and your horse you can perfect your cues and get the horse listening to your most subtle movements and commands with ease!

Bareback riding is one step closer to riding bridleless! You and your horse are in full contact and communication when bareback.

“But what if I fall off? I have nothing to hold onto!” Is a normal response I get when I mention to ditch the saddle. My reply is simple, if you fall off, you have nothing to get hung up on. We all fall we all get back on and we all learn how to stay on. Yes you’ll be so sore you can hardly move the first week you rode without the saddle but you’ll love it! You’ll love the confidence riding bareback gives you once you are back in the saddle and the strong core you will develop.

“The hardest part of riding is the ground”

Take your riding to the next level and challenge yourself by ditching the saddle!

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!
