BEHAVE the way you BELIEVE!

"I believe that horses can make us better people.  If we can learn to LISTEN, UNDERSTAND, and COMMUNICATE effectively with them, our lives will be fuller and happier!  I stumbled into Natural Horsemanship after finding out what I didn't know about a very damaged mule named Josh. My journey began while searching for answers, and soon, the most amazing things began to happen when my BEHAVIOR became worthy of Josh's TRUST and RESPECT.  

By focusing to truly understand the principles of natural horsemanship, I unraveled the secrets that build a strong relationship.  I arrived with fear, but left with confidence and success.  I believe all things good and positive are possible with our horses.


BEHAVE the way you BELIEVE and live your dream!"
