Work hard. Go and work for somebody you idolize or mentor. Learn all you can from them, not just inside the arena but outside, business wise, dealing with clients....everything! Take in as much as you can and always work hard and do the best you can. It will pay off!

Specialty/Discipline: Horse Trainer Clinician
Birthday: September 9
Hometown: Mesa, AZ
Words of Wisdom:
My best advice for someone who is deciding to train a Mustang is know your limits and educate yourself before you dive in headfirst. If you're not familiar with Mustangs, or how to train horses in general I would not recommend this for you. You must be comfortable at the walk, trot, and canter. If you're not well prepared with proper tools, knowledge and experience, you might have your "Hands Full" starting off . And we sure don't want that, so educate yourself and be comfortable in the saddle as well on the ground. Your horse will look to you to be the leader, and if you are not holding the position the horse will then become the leader.
Mustangs are quite different from domesticated horses. They have their challenges, and fears... So if you find yourself frustrated, enlist the help from someone you trust. Ask a mentor, friend or even another horse trainer to be of assistance. But most of all remember the horses are here to teach us, they ultimately give us an experience we will never forget. If you work hard, stay diligent, and never quit, it can become one of the best experiences of your life.
In fact it has changed my life completely, all because of a wild horse
