Training Horses: Our Philosophy
We provide an extraordinarily balanced life for our horses. Socializing and natural grazing offer the mental, physical and emotional balance these exceptional athletes deserve, which is why we turn them out daily. Staying focused on the whole horse by using versatile training methods and allowing for recovery and playtime is essential to honoring their hard work.
Professional Horse Trainer
“I’m very fortunate to have been able to follow my dream of riding and training horses starting at an early age.”– Nic Howard
Nic Howard’s childhood dream of being a cowboy came early when at the age twelve, he showed reigning horses for the first time. By eighteen, his training profession progressed after being hired by Tim McQuay, a legend and leader in the reining horse and western performance industry. Through this encounter, Nic not only learned new training methods, but also the business side of teaching, working with customers and managing a staff. This six-year experience provided Nic with a foundation for success. His accomplishments in Reining include being a multiple major event finalist at the NRHA Derby, the NRBC and the NRHA Futurity with lifetime earnings of $26,000. His calm demeanor and natural ability with reading horses is well-respected by all those around him.
