Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: We offer horse training and breeding. We are a horse training and breeding facility in upstate PA. We specialize in gaited horses, but train all breeds of equine, from drafts to minis and mules. Trail riding and mounted shooting are our specialty, but can and will train for a wide range of disciplines, including driving and roping. We use gentle methods of training that we have evolved from all the great trainers of today. Not every horse will respond to the same methods. We modify our training to the horse's needs, not try to fit them into a schedule that does not work for them. Sometimes you have to think outside the box! Our training horses don't just get ridden in an arena. They get exposed to the outside world and all of its crazy, scary objects. My clients' comments speak for themselves. Please visit my website posted here, for tons of more info on me and my training practices, as well as my Tennessee Walker stallion and foals from him for sale. We want to to have the horse of your dreams, and to find that perfect partnership with them to keep you dreaming! We also host a trail competition and mounted shooting competition in the end of September every year! What fun! Please check out my website for a link to the competition site, and for more info.

She trained my 3 year old and did a great job! After 30 days my son took him to the rodeo and placed.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    Do your research on a trainer. It is one of the most importand decisions you can make for you and your horse. Go visit the farm. Watch them at work. See what condition the animals are in under their care. DO YOUR HOMEWORK! It is harder to retrain a horse than to do it right the first time.
