Latest Testimonial"Lauren, WOW and Thank You! I have never learned so much in such an enjoyable way? I'm looking forward to using all these fabulous tools you have given me to build a happy partnership with Red and Playboy. OMG four days with you and we accomplished so much! You are a gifted horsewoman, of course, but also a gifted teacher. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and also helping me stay light-hearted and have fun with my horses. I look forward to working with you again in the warm weather!" -- Billie

Exceptional Horse Training, Horsemanship and Riding Instruction
Are you training your horse? Or is your horse training you?
If you get the same training as everyone else, you'll be just like everyone else. If you think maybe you're a bit (or a lot) different--this is the place for you.
In general, I'm not doing things radically differently than what many others do, but I strive to be conscious of every detail in the training of both horse and rider. And I'm extremely resolute on two aspects of everything: only the best quality skills and I adhere to exacting standards of precision. Attention to both is what makes the difference between average and exceptional in horses and horsemanship.
There are a bunch more videos/training on our fb page please click 'like' so you'll know when more are posted.
Are you a 'gonna be' or a 'wanna be' horse person?
How's Your Bucket?
Lauren .....Thanks for having me on your list. I always enjoy your newsletter. I will get a video to you of some 'proof' to people who haven't read your books of my 'before' mounting ...off a bucket ...no grace involved ...chiropractor practically necessary for me and 'after' to the graceful bareback mount your BOOK gave me!!!! I think your book should be given to anyone who ever buys a horse - sort of like a welcome wagon
What do you really want? What matters to you?
...starts about 50 feet away from your horse as you approach and ends after you’re walking away. Change is dramatic in both horse and rider when concepts are introduced that make sense but are not normally taught to people. Horsemanship doesn't start when you're already tacked up and mounted in the center of the arena. But, that's where many people engage their thoughts about riding.
Would YOU like to be... Mostly like NO ONE else?
My purpose is to help by placing both the facts and the motivation directly in your hands and from that point, it's up to you to aim your horsemanship toward exceptional, using all the tools, knowledge and skills to do so.

I had a blast… Never a dull moment with you! I’m always intrigued and amazed with you. You have such profound and thought-provoking perspective! Have you thought about being a counselor?? It’s like learning horse-ABC’s, and then putting the letters together to make “See horse run.” – J
Had a few extra minutes this morning, and I just finished reading all your blog entries. I REALLY enjoy reading your stuff! I ran out too soon. Can you write one maybe every hour or so … Just kidding … every two hours will do …
Thanks, --Randy Carson
