We create an atmosphere of trust and leadership that allows our horses to relax and look forward to learning. We set goals based on their natural talent combined with their mental/emotional fitness and then take the time it takes to make progress one day at a time. These are magnificent athletes and each horse here is treated with patience and respect. Mel is a licensed 2 Star Parelli Professional which has given him an excellent foundation. His commitment to lifelong learning has led him to study the horsemanship of Ray Hunt, Martin Black, Karen Rolf and many other successful natural horsemen. The horses here at the ranch are part of the family and posses an equal right to live a happy and healthy life.
