I don’t have a title or fancy name for the training I do, but I treat each horse as an individual and work to bring their strengths out and improve their weaknesses. Whether you want a safe trail mount or have dreams of competing, my goal is to get you there in a safe, relaxed, and positive manner! I welcome all breeds! My focus has been Western Pleasure, Hunter Under Saddle, Trail, and the Amateur/Youth events, but I have recently expanded into the exciting new disciplines of Cowboy and Western Dressage. I also have 20 years experience in recreational trail horses and “problem” horses. Please check out “The Horses” page to see some of the horses I have owned, trained and shown over the years. Don’t forget to like my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/mandithompsontraining for the latest updates in clinic and showing schedules. Training and sale videos can be found on my youtube channed: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJTDOvARkoddnEKJS1kiiig I am also now on Instagram! https://www.instagram.com/mandithompsontraining/ And last but not least I have a Pinterest page dedicated to just horse training related pins. https://www.pinterest.com/mandittraining/
