Specializing in bringing along young & problem horses
Teaching young horses how to accept a saddle and rider is not enough... you have to teach him how to respond to your requests; handle unknown circumstances; and be comfortable in his environment.
Holly has a knack for taking a young, inexperienced horse and turning it into a safe and confident mount no matter which discipline it will eventually end up in.
