My philosophy with horses is
keep it simple and natural, use as little pressure as possible but enough to get the desired result. Human leadership is essential
for a good safe, working relationship. Leadership starts from the ground where the horse can see, feel and begin to
trust and respect us as their leader. If you love horses, partnership with your horse is a life changing experience that
every Horse-person needs to experience. Don't leave life without it!

of my techniques are based on Natural Horsemanship. My gait training involves an initial evaluation with
you and your horse to go over history, time for me to get to know your and your horse, discuss saddle fit, bit use, etc.
Next I will work with your horse on ground work with some softening and flexing techniques (you are always welcome to
be present) leadership establishment, and for me to work through issues that may need to be addressed.
Once those are achieved I will work with you to teach you my technique for enabling your horse to gait with you.
Coming soon: A new Gaittrainer DVD training series. Check back frequently. Thank you, Darla
