Horse Training

My training program consists of working with you and your horse as a team to develop specific training goals. I place a strong emphasis on teaching the basics, starting with ground work. I continue to work with the horse from the ground and in the saddle to aid in the horse's understanding of what is being asked.

You can think of the horse's education as a series of building blocks or tools that the horse will have available to offer to you. As both you and your horse's knowledge base increases, you'll find that your relationship with your horse will become more harmonious and productive toward your goals.


  • The horse understands what is being asked by the rider.
  • The horse becomes lighter, more supple, calmer, and well conditioned.
  • The horse becomes an interested partner in his or her schooling.
  • The horse learns a set of "tools" that the rider can ask for when working with the horse.
  • The horse is better equipt for a successful relationship with his or her owner.
  • The horse must be sound and healthy to go forward with training.
  • The owner must be patient, open minded, realistic in their expectations, and willing to learn themselves (Please see the Lessons page. The owner's willingness to learn is paramount in the horse's continued success).
  • Training contracts are required.
