Bring Out the Best in Your Horse

Training your horse to their peak performance requires an understanding of how to condition your horse both physically and mentally. The quickest way to ruin a good horse is to skip the fundamentals.

Instead, my focus is to build the mind, develop athleticism, and create a partnership between horse and rider.

With this approach, I instruct horse owners on conditioning their horse on the ground to develop a mount that is suitable to ride under saddle. Through a series of exercises you can create a horse that is trustworthy and physically fit to perform. 

Owners can expect to learn how to appropriately condition their horse to achieve peak performance, while also developing their horse's mental capacity making them more reliable under saddle.
