Patience and respect

Teaching patience and respect isn’t just for youngsters, any horse can benefit!

I teach all my horse’s to stand untied patiently until asked to move. If they lose focus it’s regained with a snap of my fingers.

This method is the result of many steps leading up to it stemming from ground work in the round pen and teaching the voice command stop and there they learn to stand until commanded to do otherwise. We then go outside of the pen and enforce it in the grooming area. This way they know what is expected of them we just change the environment.

This helps them to stand tied with impeccable manners, helps them stay focused on you, keeps their respect for you and very convenient if you need them to stand where there is no place to tie.

This is the first step to ground tying as well so when you’re on the trail and you get off you can drop your reins your horse will stand as if it’s tied.

Remember there’s preliminary steps leading up to this in order to set the horse up to succeed but be patient and consistent it will come.

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!
