Horsemanship Lessons

"Why does it take a lifetime to learn to live a lifetime?"

Ray Hunt

Colt Starting

“It’s really amazing what a horse will do for you if he understands what you want and it’s also quite amazing what he’ll do to you if he doesn’t.”

Bill Dorrance

Horsemanship Clinics

“The horse is doing one of two things: he’s doing what he thinks he’s supposed to do, or he’s doing what he thinks he has to do to survive.”

Ray Hunt

Refinement Training

“Asking a horse ‘What can you do for me?’ is backwards.”

Ray Hunt

Cow Working

"In difficulty, there is opportunity."

Ray Hunt

Pasture Raised Beef

“Feel the whole Horse.”
