Natural Horse Training

    Our mission is a simple one: 
     To evaluate each horse for natural ability and talent, and then develop that ability to its fullest. We believe that horses, like houses, must have a strong foundation to build on. These are the building blocks of natural horse training. It is our firm belief that you should make the right thing easy and the wrong thing difficult. Soft hands and a quick eye are what makes a natural horse trainer.  “Every horse is unique” and must be treated as such;  taking advantage of a horse’s individual peculiarities and temporary moods.  BECAUSE no two horses are alike, our training methods are flexible, allowing us to vary the details of each lesson.
     Horses, by nature, fight against pressure rather than give in to it. It is imperative to establish handler trust in the horse from the start; understanding, and applying this fundamental concept when working with horses in training. You will be more than pleased with the confident and willing horse you will have when it comes home.
     We're also long ears friendly. Mules and saddle donkeys provide us with a unique opportunity. The wonderful thing about a gaited mule is that they keep us on top of our game. It takes talent, work, and dedication to set gait in a mule. Although often mislabeled as "stubborn", or "ill- natured", mules are very intelligent, hard working and versatile members of the equine family. They make perfect trail mounts, or show mounts. In the defense of the mule, they are often labeled as stubborn, when in fact, they are cautious and very intelligent. A mule will not do something he does not feel is safe. You will find that you cannot bully a mule. They must be approached with respect and with the idea in mind that if you aren't careful, they will spend more time trying to out-think you than just do what you ask. 
     Thank you for visiting. We appreciate your business and will be glad to help you any way that we can. From starting your horses, to a refresher course and tune up, we have many options available to you.

      We will always work with your specific needs and the needs of your horse.  Please take some time and browse through the rest of our site and you will learn more about who we are and what training methods we believe in.

Perfecting Their Stride For a Better Ride


A man of kindness, to his beast is kind.

 But, brutal actions, show a brutal mind: 
 Remember, He who made thee, made the brute,
Who gave thee speech and reason, formed him mute;
He can't complain, but God's omniscient eye
Beholds thy cruelty - He hears his cry!
He was designed thy servant; not thy drudge,
But know - That his Creator is thy judge. - Unknown author from The Ladies' Equestrian ​​



Interview with Burl Brooks of Brooks Gaited Horse Training. Gaited horses are often by nature, even tempered and good natured animals. They are smooth of gait and easy to ride. So, yes, they ARE for amateur riders. They are also for experienced riders who want a bit more out of their ride than bouncing up and down in the saddle the whole trip. I've ridden some good straight going animals, and they are good at what they are for. But for me, if I'm going to ride all day, I have a saying. "Go gaited or go home!" We focus primarily on Gaited Trail Horses, but will work with all disciplines and breeds.
