Getting You and Your Horse Started Right!

~ Colt Starting
~Ranch Sorting
~Cow Lessons

I have directed my training towards making a well broke horse. I believe that every horse wants to learn, but needs the confidence to learn. I feel that if you put the time in and give your horse the right tools that they are able to succeed in any program. I use natural horsemanship to build there confidence on the ground and then continue building that confidence through their entire education. I focus on making the horse soft and supple throughout their whole body, starting at the head and working back to the hips. I enjoy competing and improving my skills as well as my horses.

I earned an Associate’s Degree in Horse Management from Linn-Benton Community College in 2005. I have been an assistant trainer and gained knowledge starting colts to the fundamentals of reining horses and working cow horses. I have also had the opportunity to compete competitively in ranch sorting.
