Announcement:  Due to a full schedule, Jayme is presently not taking new horses for training.
 
 
Horse Training
  The Anti-Whisperer
Jayme is not a “horse whisperer.”  He is simply someone who loves and studies equines.  He has a unique ability to connect with--and understand--horses and mules.  His specialty is starting colts and solving behavioral problems.
 
Jayme uses natural horsemanship but does not spoil his horses.  He turns out a kind but focused horse.  His equines are very light to the touch.  He loves mules and trains them, too.  Jayme is perfect for beginning to advanced training, but others trainers are more appropriate when specialty training is required (reining, cutting, dressage, hunter/jumper, etc.)
 
Jayme has studied the methods of various well-known horse trainers.  He interned at the Monty Roberts International Learning Center in Solvang, California.
 
Due to his writing schedule, he only trains a limited number of equines each spring and summer.  Check far in advance to insure availability.

References
Jayme is always happy to provide references from past equine training clients.  Ask for this information when you call to discuss your needs.
 
Right of Refusal
Jayme reserves the right to return a horse if, for any reason, he believes he cannot adequately meet the training objective.  If the horse is excessively dangerous, etc., he will return the horse and refund your money.  This has only happened once, and Jayme believes that 95% of horses, despite their histories and habits, can make good mounts, but he reserves the right of refusal for the exceptions.

Notes:
Rider training is tailored the the individual’s needs, no matter whether the rider is a rote beginner or advanced rider.  Most instruction is given while you are riding, which increases “seat time.”  You will do some arena riding, and, depending on need and desire, ride on trails, roads, public places, etc.

Group rates are available.

Participation Requirement
Jayme knows that the owner/rider is crucial to the success of the training.  Therefore, he REQUIRES, to a small degree, the owner’s participation in the training.  When Jayme releases a horse from training, he is confident the horse has achieved the objectives.  He wants to insure that the owner knows how to implement and reinforce the training at home.
