Training Philosophy: My goal when starting a new horse is to help prepare the horse physically and
mentally to be able to carry a rider and to preform its designated discipline. I want the horses that leave my
program to enjoy being worked, and to set them up with a good foundation that can lead to bigger and
better things. My training practices endeavor to show the horse the best way to do things first on the ground
and then in the saddle. I follow classical training methods, and respect the horse as a creature of independent
thought with a general willingness to learn and cooperate. I do not use gadgets, gimmicks or quick fixes, and
am both able and willing to explain the reasons behind the different tools and exercises I use.
