My Expert Service

Teaching horse owners what it is to be a student of the horse, how to communicate in a way that builds confident trusting partnerships and sharing the tools of quality horsemanship is my goal. Offering solutions to problems that are meaningful to the horse while building respect, trust and confidence in both horse and human, is what I strive for.

Experience & Qualifications

I have had the privilege of learning from the finest horsemen living. I have studied with Ray Hunt, Buck Brannaman, Brian Neubert and Ricky Quinn in the Buckaroo/Vaquero tradition. These are the most influencial teachers of my career and the teachers I believe have the deepest understanding of what a horse is and how the horse thinks and feels. This is the true measure of what a student of the horse is. It is the extra special gift that allows a real understanding of the horse and the ability to establish true unity. I have had the great fortune to be involved in 3-Day eventing, AQHA Competitions, Trail horse, showmanship, western pleasure, western riding. I now enjoy big loop roping, and ranch horse events. I have learned from the best of the best and am willing to share my life long passion for horses with other caring, committed owners.
