What Other’s Are Saying
“Kim is very kind and trustworthy and that is a rare asset in the horse training world. I know I could trust Kim to be honest about a horse and his suitability for what I was looking for him to do.
She is kind to her animals. I know I could expect them to be loved and cared for and get a lot of one-on-one time with her…not her helper or assistant."
~ Bobbi Kay Bowen – TX
Star Struck Miniatures & American Shetlands
“Kim has a keen observation of each animal to assess what they need, as far as where to begin their training in life-skills to work in partnership with people. I also like her holistic approach to finding out why a particular animal may be having a problem or behavior issue.”
~ Susan Crozier – Eastland, TX
Owner of Pleasant Hill Ranch
“I find Kim to be an extremely knowledgeable and capable horsewoman. Not only can she accomplish outstanding results with the horses she trains, but she really is passionate about helping others achieve great results with their horses as well. There may be many out there who can train horses, but not everyone is a good teacher.
Kim has a natural ability to break things down into easy steps, making it easier for students to learn. Kim is also very generous in sharing her knowledge in the area of holistic horse keeping, which has been very helpful to me in caring for my horses in more natural ways.”
~Leslie H. of Elgin, TX
“My horse and I have enjoyed the agility course that we have taken with Kim. Her course has helped us focus on things we may not have ever tried. It has also improved our relationship and communication. The course is engaging, challenging, and fun for both horse and human!
Kim explains things well and her voice overs are very helpful for pointing out areas to work on and things we are doing well. I look forward to taking more agility courses from her and to continue learning and possibly competing in the future with her teaching and guidance.”
~ Tia Fagan
“If you want to take the relationship with your horse to a new level then signup for Kim’s Agility class. I thought that I was going to learn a few new tricks and tips to help me toward entering agility online competitions but what I got was a whole lot more.
I never thought that agility could enhance my working relationship with my horses. Even if you don’t want to do agility competitions, the skills you learn in this class and the deeper bonding you achieve with your horse is well worth the class."
~ Susan Engle, MT
“I chose Kim as a trainer because of the gentle Horsemanship methods she uses. The fact that she handles each horse according to its personality, and doesn’t try to train them all with the same technique, as all horses are different.
~Pat Buckner – Anson, Tx
“Kim has an extreme ability to care about what she is doing more than most people. She cares about the horses and her clients. She also has more education than most trainers will ever have.
Kim takes very good care of the horses and gives them the best education possible. I am endorsing Kim as an Instructor of my methods. She does know it inside and out. With her knowledge and insight, she can help many.”
