I am currently honored to be the private trainer at the lovely exclusive Tiara B Ranch estate in Patagonia. I do not offer riding lessons on site.

I train exclusively for Mr and Mrs Reininghaus. We breed and raise fine high quality reining bred horses. Youngsters are available for sale; we have weanlings on up to broke well going horses. Our horses have Smart Little Lena, Peppy San Badger and Dry Doc breeding. We breed blue roans and have some lovely very pretty, well started horses.

I am available for off site lessons and training locally.

I specialize in building a firm solid base of control with horses. I train them using basic dressage and reining techniques, using verbal cues as much as possible. My horses are well mannered and make fine work partners, I teach them all to work gates, sidepass, back easliy, take leads, do lead changes and have a show headset. They are also worked with plastic and trail obstacles designed to de-spook them and encouraged to be quiet on trail.

I do all of the training myself. I do not have any assistants at all. Ground manners work is part of the training. Horses will tie up, clip, use fly spray and have their feet worked with.
