Cedar Ridge Horse Training

Horse training in Bozeman, Montana provided by equine professional Amy Prechter

Training Philosophy:
I believe in developing a soft, light in the mouth, and responsive horse. To accomplish this, one must develop a feel for each horse to best develop an individualized training plan. I emphasize on-the-ground training until the horse is ready for mounted training. My motto is "smoothness before speed" for all of my riding students and horses in training. Horses must develop confidence in the very basic elements before they can advance. Please refer to my professional vitae for a glimpse at my extensive background in the equestrian world as well as in youth education.
