Pictures & Web Page

 We'll send you home with all the pictures and videos we have, this will help you to see more of their training and how we go about certain tasks. 

Our Daily Routine Pamphlet

When becoming a client we will send you home with a pamphlet called our "Daily Routine". In this pamphlet we will describe what we do every day before we train and or ride. Itís a check list and notes to help you take over where we left off. Between viewing, handling, pictures, videos, and the pamphlet you should have a better understanding and confidence when you get home and continue training, riding, and general handling of your horse.

Our Methods:

We work hard to gain the trust and respect of  the horses we are training.

We work with the horse's mind, at the horses speed & teach them to learn, respect, & trust in us for all their needs. 

 We've developed different many tehnique's that will bring positive results in every horse.

 We have many years experience educating wild pedigree'd, and wild BLM horses as well as the back yard spoiled pets of all ages.

All of our techniques are taught through balance and body language using gentle, humane and respectful methods of softening the mind and body.

We will educate your horse and share these methods with you.

Our Guarantees:

We cannot guarantee any horse to be solid, or bombproof in their training when leaving us. Those guarantees do not realistically exist in the equine world, and their training is NEVER over, finished, or complete. There is always more that can be done or achieved.

Horses have minds and attitudes - just like people. Some are naturally good-minded and others are not. Some are slow learners, and others learn fast. Some horses even have mental problems and/or handicaps for one reason or another, and may always require special help.

Horses are always testing each other and us to see what they can get away with. The goal there is to work their way up the ranks to the dominating position in the herd. They will transfer this need to dominate (or be dominated) to their relationships with people.

We, as their trainers, must develop and maintain the dominating position through proper leadership skills, in turn developing a trusting relationship. They WILL test us all the time to see if we are still their leader. It is our job and your's  to know when they are testing us, and quickly correct them.

When you come and pick up your horse, expect them to test you quickly. (They have already tested us, and know their position in our ďherdĒ). They NEED to know if they are obeying you, or if you are obeying them. Make it very clear who is the leader, and this can be done by simple body language. If you donít notice them testing you, they will quickly pick up on it, and this will start the process of their pushing for more and more dominance over you until you again have little or no control over your horse or his respect.

Itís up to you to take a dominating role as we will show you in our lesson programs, or with visitations and pick up of your trained horse.

We Guarantee: to show you how we keep the dominate role through demonstration, pictures, video, and our daily routine pamphlet. We Guarantee: we will not force, restrain or rush any horse to get them trained. We Guarantee: to put in an honest days work and try and get them as far as we can in their training while they are here with us. We Guarantee: to take good care of your horse and deal with any problems that come up on a first priority basis.

Stallion, mare and reproductive training and handling.

We have many years experience at handling and training Stud horses and mares for breeding. We can work with your horse and teach them how to respect you when it comes time to handle them and breed. We can also teach you how to better understand them, and be safe when the season comes around and its time to handle them. 



It is extremely important for you and/or your handler to be here the day your horse leaves so we can demonstrate your horses' training experience with you, and assist you with the handling of your horse,
(particularly the Wild Mustangs, and Re-habilitation projects).

Not showing up to learn about your horse and how to handle it properly
may have a negative impact on your results with your trained (or re-educated) horse once you are back home without a clue how to get the same positive results we did from your horse! 

At the end of the Training Course, we will discuss and demonstrate what your horse has learned, and what they still need worked on.


You will be responsible for all fees owed at the end of training at the time of departure.
We keep a training journal and videos on all horses for future reference if needed.

Training does not include any special needs such as supplements, vet care, shots, worming ect.



It's important to know your rights and the law.
