Back in 1982 my first foal was born and I named her JJ Cherokee Princess. I knew I had a long road ahead of me because I had never trained a horse before and she was a fireball. As the years went by Princess became 2 years old and ready to break. I did the best I could with her and she turned out to be a good riding horse.
Years later, I met a man who I learned alot about horses and an easy way to get them started from the ground up.
I still use the techniques he taught me and I have positive results with all the horses that I train.
I can give your horse a new attitude, and with most all the horses I train I can create a gentle, well mannered animal. Because each horse responds to training differently, the amount of time needed to fully trian the horse varies.
If anyone is interested in contacting me for training you can email me.

Pat was purchased by my Dad about a mile from our house on March 23, 1978 for $500.oo. He was a strawberry roan stallion that had a very sweet personality. I got a the saddle I am riding in the pictures, bridle, blanket, and grooming brush.
Pat died August 25, 2001 he was 28 years old.
Here are some pictures of Pat.
Bojangles "Bo" was purchased October 1997 for Brittney to learn how to ride a horse. We bought him from a horse sale in Uniontown, Alabama. He was not broke to ride except for the rider to be lead.
When Brittney started riding with out the assistance of another person, she gave the finishing touches to breaking him to ride. I remember Bo being so stubborn. Brittney rode him in barrels and arena race and when she finally got him in the gate I had to "jump start" him before he would lope. He never overcame stubborn. Brittney showed him in leadline for many years and when she was older she starting riding him in Pony Walk Trot and Pony Pleasure. She did very well in those classes also. As Brittney got older we bought her a padded horse, Charlie.
Jared started riding Bo when he was 3 years old. He rode him in Pony Walk Trot and Pony Pleasure also and won many trophies. Jared enjoyed Bo also but he was still stubborn. Bo was a very gentle pony for kids. He was used for riding lessons and just general riding with kids all over.
Bo died in September 2008 from old age.
We never knew really how old he was when we bought him. Our vet speculated that he was 9 then. So he would have been 20 at his death.
