WHO WE ARE
It all started with a five-year-old little curly headed boy who loved the outdoors and was fascinated by all animals, especially horses. I worried my parents until they bought me my first pony. He was a small, unbroken Shelton stallion pony: we named him Diablo, which means devil in Spanish! He struck both fear and excitement in my heart! He was the first of two ponies I had as a child. As I grew older we moved a lot and we didn’t always have room for horses or ponies.
My first goal as an adult was to have my own home and land for horses. The passion for horses burned in my heart and I wanted to take it to the next level. In 1992 I began starting horses for other people and worked with a local trainer for a short time. I started reading books and watching videos to teach myself at a deeper level. Through my studies, one trainer always stood out to me, John Lyons. I was very impressed with his humane training and abilities with natural horsemanship. So, in 1994 I sold my home to pay for the apprenticeship program and off to Colorado I went! This was a dream I thought would never come true. The program was intense, enlightening, and life changing! Years later I have worked with hundreds of horses, owners and Universities all over the eastern United States.
I want to thank God for making all this possible. My lovely wife, Tiphanie, that helps direct my path and loves me for who I am. John Lyons who changed my life years ago and showed me a better way to see the horse and rider. My goal is to give the horse community what John Lyons gave me.
