Specializing in young and problem horses, Joe trains through an understanding of both the physical and psychological characteristics of the horse. Joe also produces show horses, specializing in western all around, and reining horses, dressage and show horses. Joe thinks of each horse as an individual, and so there is no set program or order of training. Each horse will be given a training program tailored to their specific requirements. Whether it is a show horse, young horse, or problem horse that you have for us to work with, we pride ourselves on producing a responsive and confident partner for you to progress with through your horsemanship journey….
