Words from our Fans

My dream was to learn to train reining prospect from start to finish. I'd about given up, and then I found Stacy.

- ASHLEY HERMANN

Before I worked with Stacy, other trainers and coaches had left me with the impression that my horse was strong-headed, not a very good horse, and that I'd always have to fight with her. Thanks to Stacy, I know none of that is true.

- MARTINA BROWN

About Stacy

Growing up, I shared a love of horses with my mother but neither of us knew what we were doing. Over the years we dealt with horses that wouldn’t load into trailers, wouldn’t pick up their leads and wouldn’t stand still to be mounted. I fell off more times than I could count and was bitten, stepped on and run away with before I was old enough to drive a car. There were many, many good times too. My favorite childhood memories all involve horses (and one ornery pony.)

It took me years to develop to the point where I became a successful competitor in a male-dominated industry. The beauty of this is that it proved that true strength is a mental game more than a physical one.

I believe in creating win-win-win relationships. I can show you how to reach your goals faster if you’re willing to put in the work. Whether you love trail riding, have goals of showing or would someday love to understand bridleless riding, I can show you the way.

…and yes I still clean stalls."
