My rescue, Gunner, was having behavioral problems in general - and was rearing. I could not worm him, pick up his feet, or get anywhere near his mouth. Considering the issues, I was too scared to ride him. I sent him to Cathie's, and within a month he was a different horse. He stands for fly spray, lets me pick up his feet, and most importantly - stopped rearing and doing a jig under saddle. Cathie was willing to help me with the worst possible situation - dangerous behavior paired with a too-nice inexperienced owner. I believe that I got just as much out of her training (if not more) than my horse did.
Not only that, but Cathie also took into consideration that my horse had some health issues. She always considered how he was feeling and tailored each lesson depending on how he was doing that particular day. I cant say enough good things about my experience. Cathie, you really went above and beyond what I expected out of you. Thanks so much... sincerely :) Becky
Cathie has such an amazing way with horses and explaining her methods as she puts them to action. Every step is broken down so even the newbies understand the whats and whys to her methods. Our horse had major issues when he came to my mother in-laws. He was very frightful to pretty much everything. Cathie took her time with him each week and she gained his trust and respect. Cathie gave me the right tools so I could practice on my own time and each week showed great improvement. He now lunges, turns to the right, picks up his feet without issue and is getting use to carrying a rider, and so much more!!! I highly recommend her to anyone with horses. There is not one person out there that could not benefit from her experience and training techniques!!! Natural horsemanship is the way to go!!! Daron Minor
