Philosophy

We work with the principles of pressure and release and always take into account the physical and mental capabilities of every individual horse. We never push a horse beyond what they are ready for and keep owners up to date with progress throughout their horse’s stay.

Influences

AlWe know that to be good and stay good you need to keep educating yourself. Michael is mentored by international judge and trainer Bob Mayhew and also attends clinics with renowned western horsemen, making annual visits to Multiple World Champion Al Dunning in the States.
