I am 51 years old. I was raised on a ranch in central Nebraska where I rode horses to get to school.
I started training my first colt at age 10 and started training for the public at age 11.
Since then, my range of experience went from ranch to rodeo arena and from the race track to the show ring. I have learned to train many types & breeds of horses for numerous events.
The first time I saw Russ was when a friend took me over to introduce him and just watch him ride. I was really impressed
with the way he was handling the horse that day and filed it in the back of my mind. A couple of years passed and I kept hearing his name again and again so my husband and I decided to go and talk to him about a mare that I was having a few problems with. He took
her in and within a couple of weeks he had her working better than she ever had, so we decided to have him start our colts for us. He has a great way with the youngsters and we were really happy with the
way they came home and were ready to go forward with the riding we planned to do with them. He has a very kind, quiet way with horses that has always amazed and impressed us and over the years we've
seen him take totally spoiled horses and turn them into useful, working animals that anyone could ride. We can't recommend Russ enough to anyone who has a colt to start, or a spoiled horse that was never started right. You see him ride you believe!

Russ has done a great job starting several young horses for me.
When they get home they are ready for a career in the show ring or to be good family horses.
They are sensible and confident.
