    I highly recommend this trainer and his methods. This past summer it was my job to take an untrained headstrong 3 year old mare (July) and turn her into a sound riding horse. I soon learned that I was in way over my head and needed help from someone with extensive training experience and past knowledge. That person was Bill Baehr. Bill worked with July and I from start to finish, first teaching excellent ground manners and respect of personal space, desensitization and trust, and finally the lesson that being ridden can be fun. July progressed quickly and before I knew it, it was time to lope her across open country. Amazing! I never would have thought that you could take an untrained, barely handled mare and have her learn so much so fast. Bill was not only extremely thorough and comprehensive, but he was unhurried and made sure we had the results we wanted before moving on to the next task. Riding an inexperienced horse can be scary, but I knew that Bill and I had done the necessary groundwork and I trusted him completely. By using proven training methods, Bill ensured the safest environment possible for me and my horse. Bill was also kind to the horse and very patient. The best part of the training was my direct involvement, and Bill’s belief that the rider/owner must have a hands –on role. I pestered him with many questions about how and why things were done, and Bill patiently explained everything I needed to know. He would show me what to do and I would take over and do them, while he coached me every step of the way. Learning how to train from Bill was a privilege and I would love the opportunity to work with him again. I truely believe in his methods and would recommend him to any rider, trainer, or horse enthusiast.

    Terrie is a very patient & knowledgeable instructor. She's able to make new concepts easily understandable. She has an excellent eye for seeing even minute tension in horse or rider. If you're interested in improving your partnership with your horse through correct classical riding, Terrie is your girl! I've had about 5 lessons with Terrie so far & my knowledge of how a horse moves & how to influence his movement has expanded greatly. Coming from a hunter/jumper background & wanting to pursue eventing, this is my 1st real experience with dressage & it's been wonderful. My way of riding has improved greatly & so has my horses way of going. I look forward to what the future brings to us through Terrie's patient instruction.

    About

    I provide services that include special care of the horses. I treat each animal as if it were my own. Other transporters tend to load as many horses as they can and drive nonstop to their next destination of picking up and dropping off horses, horses arrive dehydrated and exhausted from heat and constant trailer movement.. I tend to haul fewer horses stop often and make sure horses are drinking water at each stop. I provide water flavored with molasses or apple juice to get them to drink. I also provide bran and water mashes. If it is safe to do so will unload walk the horse and reload during a long trip. I have an onboard camera system that allows me to monitor the horses all during the transport.
