Have Fun, Learn Lots, and Ride!
Why should you ride with Michael?
Michael's humility and knowledge of the horse makes his clinics really stand out. He is all about getting to know each and every individual and creating a program that best fits them! Even in a clinic atmosphere, he works to tailor each exercise to the needs of the horse and rider team.
Want to ACTUALLY LEARN? Michael is all about giving you each exercise you need to get the goal you desire. He does not hold anything back. He will give you the exact knowledge you need to get your results in the clinic, but also at home! Your training will not end when the clinic is over, because you have been set up over the course to take everything home and apply it yourself!
We could go on and on about why Michael's training is extremely beneficial, but why don't you hear it from those who have participated!

"I've had the privilege of Michael's instruction twice. Once in a clinic and once in a private lesson on my reining horse. I have participated in several clinics and follow a number of natural horsemanship trainers for tips and insight. None of them come close to the insight and knowledge I received from Michael during my two lessons with him. What I appreciate most about Michael is that he takes the time to get to know you and your horse before he ever begins to give suggestions or instruction. No "one size fits all" for this guy! I have ridden off and on all my life, but reining is new to me, and it's been many years since I've ridden consistently. Michael gave me exactly what I needed to improve my leadership skills with my horse and also gave me some insight into how my particular horse learned best. In everything he does, his love of the horse and of sharing knowledge that will improve the horse/rider partnership through natural horsemanship shines through. I love his gentleness and how in tune he is with each horse as an individual. REmarkable, amazing, God given talent. My only complaint is that I don't live close enough to ride with him often! Hoping to take advantage of another clinic or private lesson soon!"
