Bryan’s Philosophy

            “I believe that verbal commands are very important to the horse and rider. I believe that the horse needs to trust the rider and vise versa. I don’t believe aggressiveness is the answer for fresh starting colts. Subtleness towards them creates a bond and safe environment for them to begin trusting you. Immediate eye contact is a sign of aggressiveness to them. Every horse is unique and needs to be taught individually according to their needs. Some learn faster than others but all are capable of learning. I become one with the horse. Getting him/her to relax and trust is the main thing, from there anything is possible”

“I look forward to working with you and your equine and making this a great experience for all involved.
