Horses are beautiful, magnificent, and powerful animals, and can be great partners to their owners.  However, they can also be very dangerous due to their size, weight, speed, and being “fight-or-flight” prey animals.  Understanding horse behavior and knowing what to do to avoid and/or correct any dangerous behavior is what we specialize in. 

At Reata Horsemanship, SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY AND PREPARATION IS THE KEY.  Preparing the horse for any interaction with the human owner is key to being safe around and on the horse.  We provide the education and tools necessary to create and maintain that safe and fun-filled relationship between you and your horse.  This includes 1-on-1 consultations and clinics with horse owners with “problem” horses or who want to improve their horsemanship skills. We also train horses and mules for owners, and we sell well-trained horses to qualified buyers.

*One major shortfall of most horse training programs is the lack of education and continued maintenance training for riders and horses.  A well-trained, “bomb-proof” horse can turn into a dangerous bolting, rearing, and/or bucking horse without the correct owner education and maintenance.  Time and time again, we have “dangerous” horses donated to us who were once considered “safe”, “kid safe”, and “bomb-proof”. These horses ended up hurting their owners.  It wasn’t for lack of the horse initially being trained well and safe.  It was for lack of owner education and continued training and maintenance that led to the dangerous situations.  At Reata Horsemanship, we take pride in our educational training programs that help ensure longevity of horse safety and good, healthy, and happy horse and owner relationships.
