Horsemanship Clinics


Steve is one of the most sought-after instructors in the horse industry. Traveling all over the US and Canada, he has helped thousands of horses and riders develop more willing partnerships.  His methods and teaching style are unique and produce instant results.  Whether to overcome fears, or gain more control, participants will leave the clinic empowered and more excited about reaching their horsemanship goals.

Many people ask if Steve’s methods work on warmbloods, gaited horses, Arabians, ponies, draft horses, barrel racers, jumpers, sport horses, dressage horses, etc.  Steve’s methods are for any breed of horse and any discipline.  No matter how old your horse is, or how long you’ve owned it, and no matter what you like to do with your horse: if you put in the effort, you will accomplish your goals with Steve’s methods.

Owning a horse is not just going for a ride; it’s a commitment to yourself and another living being.  One that depends on you for leadership, care, and comfort.  Every time you are around your horse, you are teaching them something.  Are they the things that you want them to learn?
