They Can because they think they Can!  Do you have a problem horse or training Issues? If you do & need help you have come to the right place!

Is it horse behavior, training or handling problems? Any and all can be scary, frustrating, or even dangerous!. John as the experience to help you and your horse solve a wide variety of behavior or training problems – in ways that are safe, proven, and effective.


Once a horse as a good foundation of Ground Training and is prepare Mentally, Physically & Emotionally - “A truly trained horse needs three things: long rides, wet saddle blankets, logical step by step concentrated training and you have to have equal doses of all three.”  

The part about having all three in roughly equal measures is what many people miss. A lot of ranch horses get long rides–from sunup to sundown, even–but they’re stiff as a board in their face and body. Plenty of show horses are soft and supple from all the concentrated training they get, but try taking one out on the trail… he’s likely to spook at everything.  Racehorses always come back with wet saddle blankets, but try to do something with them besides gallop, and you’ll see straight away what’s missing in their training. So, it takes all three parts of the training regimen, each with the proper emphasis, in order for the formula to work best.

When you ASK your horse to move one or more of its five Body Parts; does it do it willingly without using force and without fear?

Learn Ground and Body Control in the saddle!

Body Control is the art of developing independent control over each segment of the horse's body - his head, neck, shoulders, ribcage and haunches are all separate entities that must learn to work individually or in unison as our riding commands.  Focusing on the displacement, flexibility and control of these separate entities is the mainstay of creating a horse that is willing, soft, supple and capable of moving his body any direction at any time, which in turn will help him to excel in any discipline.  Having control of the horse’s five body parts is more than a big deal it is everything. If you can control the five body parts without using force and the horse does it willingly, then you can pretty much teach your horse anything; avoid, prevent and fix behaviour issues!.

 Lightness is the Foundation of Willingness, the hallmark of collection…..Bill Dorrence!

“When we ask a horse to do something and he fails to do it; that is because he was not trained to do it”.  “When we ask a horse to do something properly and he fails to do it; that is because he was not trained properly and/or the rider was not trained properly”.
