I am fortunate to be the owner of a ranch & farm operation in the Moscow, ID area with my wife, Susan, and our daughter, Josie. Horses have always been a major part of my life. Over the years, I have rediscovered my passion for horses and in doing so have observed the different methods used by riders in their training of their horses.  Some of these have been brutal in nature, causing mistrust in both horse and riders.

The methods that I teach are those that build trust, communication and education for the rider to create a "willing partner" with their horse. I studied with Richard Shrake and his Resistance Free methods for many years and am a certified trainer of his methods. I welcome all students who want to learn or improve their riding skills through methods of respecting the horse and his abilities.

My goal is to be the catalyst for all those who love horses and want the best for them.
