First six years of my riding career was competing in cow events; cutting, team penning, and team/ranch sorting. After that, my life has been spent barrel racing and a little bit of cow horse event showing. I have shown my whole life in a vast array of different disciplines. I have rode several different breeds of horses including: percherons, quarters, paints, national show horses, etc. I have shown in halter, western pleasure, trail, pole bending, barrel racing, cutting, reining, team penning, and team/ranch sorting.
About My Training and Horses For Sale
I am a very patient rider/handler and work with the horse, not against them. I don't like to push a horse harder than what they are ready for. I do a lot of slow work at first and gradually work them up to a faster pace when they show me that they can handle it. I have very soft and quiet hands and I try not to jerk on a horse's face. My training revolves a lot on getting a horse soft, bending, and being able to move the horse where ever the rider would like to put them. I am very consistent with what I do to help the horse better understand what I am teaching them. I have been very successful with the horses that I have worked with and will continue to work towards improving myself and my training!
I pride myself on being very honest and open when selling a horse! I want, both the rider and horse, to be successful. I wont sell a horse just to sell a horse. If I feel like it wont be a good fit or the horse isn't exactly what you are looking for, I will tell you.
