I love my horse, but he…___________!!


Everyone has a vice, a quirk and horses are no different. 
Horses learn good behavior and they learn bad behavior, and they form habits, too. The difference is there aren’t bad horses, just horses with people problems.
So whether your horse bucks, bolts, rears or eats your mail as you walk through the barn with it … we will help you find the solution you need. 
This might be a cartoon, but often horses are innocently taught to “count,” to rear or any number of “tricks” that put an unsuspecting new owner in danger. Hercules can withstand a head butt from a draft horse, you probably won’t be so lucky! 
Dangerous or annoying habits, or simple holes in early training, can make working with some horses tricky.  We’ll help you understand their language, see the early signs of a developing issue that are usually missed, and give you the tools you need to have a strong bond with a foundation for communication, so … you know… you horse doesn’t try to High Five you or run you under a low branch.
