A good stop under saddle starts from the ground.

Every horse I train knows voice command stop first. We work on decompressing and building confidence and boundaries and respect while lunging daily. We incorporate the stop and encourage patience from the beginning.

My horse’s all stand quietly while tied, in the horse trailer, loose in the grooming area or anywhere I want them to stand in general.

When they are started under saddle they stand quietly while being mounted and dismounted. They look forward to the stop and if unsure they stop instead of react and bolt etc.

Strong buildings that last the test of time have strong foundations, just like a good horse.

In order to grow to your fullest potential you must first have strong roots well planted in the ground, like a good horse it all begins with the groundwork.

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!
