Cattle Clinics


Here's what our clients are saying...

"Took a chance on getting into this clinic. Went with several friends. We all had a great time. Everybody came away with plenty of new info to be a better rider and get more out of their horses. Brian is very energetic and encouraging. I especially appreciated his "take your time" approach. We all want to go back. We got more than our money's worth and the lunch Melanie provided gave everybody a chance to get to know each other and compare notes. Can't wait to go back.

Great Experience!"

"Brian has a "terrific" demeanor in teaching people and was not afraid to praise people or instruct them in a professional manner! I thought that the entire family was welcoming and the arena was great to work in!"

"I really enjoyed my time at the cow-horse clinic. It was an excellent opportunity for my horse and I. We overcame a lot together and I feel he has finally been unlocked. Brian is an excellent teacher and I really appreciate his optimism. It's hard to find trainers who are optimistic and praise more for a job well done rather than just critiquing what's not right.

The clinic was an awesome experience and pushed me in a better direction."

"I attended Brian's Cow Horse Clinic on Jan 9th 2010. I was able to attend with my best friend Amy! We had a blast! Brian is able to break things down very easily so that not only you, but your horse will understand. The facility is amazing, you feel right at home. Lunch was delicious and warmed you up!

I look forward to going back to Brian for lessons and more clinics! I highly recommend him."
