We use Natural Horsemanship such as Clinton Anderson, Pat Parelli, and Ray Hunt techniques to train our horses. This tpye training gives the horse the good strong basic foundation for any events you would like to use them for.

trail riding horse training

Trails are a good experience for any horse & there are certainly many around here to train your horse on & get a little work done while we are at it. The ground stays rideable most of the winter with easy, southern Ohio weather.

Moving the herd

We have 350 acres of pasture, creeks & woods to trail on plus 100 head of cattle that frequently need checking, vacinating, working and/or moving.  Our indoor arena is set up to be able to hold cattle for training your young horses on cattle for cutting, working cattle, roping, ranch horse, cowhorse & basic roping events.

We have hand built a sturdy round pen to use for starting the colts & refreshing the older more advanced horses.

Below are pictures of the Round Pen. I am riding the horse here. I specialize in ground work, teaching respect, manners, and desensitizing (de-spooking). Mark does a bit of everything - ground work, starting colts, to the more advanced training of the Ranch horses.
