One-on-One Training

The missing link to great horsemanship is not knowing your  “Why”

and not being able to recognize what that horse is telling you through their

attitude, emotions, body part and foot movement.

Dennis’ easy going  cowboy way will encourage you with a “I Can Do This” belief.
  •  Learn to “Read the Horse.”
  • Connect with mutual  Respect and Trust.
  • Know exactly “What” you want your horse to do.

What Past Students Say

Honest praise from former clients.

Thank you!

We have grown our partnership with our horses, our own leadership skills, and our clarity about what we are asking of our equine partners.

Always learning,

The wisdom and skills that Dennis offers make me not only a more effective equestrian but a better human being!

Thank you so much for helping us get here!

We trailered to Indian Camp Creek this morning and had a wonderful three hour ride. It was such a blast and the fulfillment of so many dreams.

I am so excited for my next lesson,

I needed special help from someone who really knew mustangs and was the definition of a professional in all aspects of the word. After only one session with Dennis, Gabriel responded very well and is on the path to becoming the horse I have always dreamed of.

You put my concerns at ease,

I want to thank you for your patience, empathy and understanding during our visit. You put my concerns at ease, and showed that you cared as much about my horse's hoof health as I did. We went out this morning and enjoyed one of the most stress free rides we have had in a very long time. His stride has improved and his foxtrot is outstanding. - Outlaw and Victoria

Freedom shoes were an immediate relief.

Dennis put the freedom shoes on Smoke's front feet and immediately he let out a sign of relief and his eyes softened. Smoke was bearing weight on hoof and is now walking and has no limp, totally comfortable and a happy horse! Thank you! -Jeanne & Smoke

Thank you for the way you are presenting your new programs!

So, this morning we went out for a pasture ride by ourselves. I only took two things with me; a different attitude and my clear mental picture. She looked for her pasture buddy but listened to me! I kept my CMP and attitude shift with me the whole time and all went well.
