Training and Riding Lessons

Horse Training

Paul Garrison looks back:
As I look back I realize that I have been honoured over the past 45 yrs to have had vast experiences within the training of horses. This is something only a few in two countries have been able to claim. As much as it does not pay well, training it is extremely interesting. Every horse has a different disposition ,history, age and experiences..
I can confess to many mistakes, but have learned many valuable lessons. I can now reach out to your horse …with the experience of taking horses whom are not even halter broke …to jumping a show course, as well as taught them to quietly trail ride through deep cricks, swales, jumping over downed trees.
Horses have come to us and go from being fearful of everything, or spoiled, to becoming quiet around traffic, able to cross bridges, able to open and close gates, stand still to mounted from the ground as well as the mounting block, framing, side passing, roll backs , nice circles , stopping, backing up, sliding stops etc.
I have taught horses that it’s safe and ok to be roped from. I have taught horses to drive, have trained and professionally raced running horses for 5 of those years, and have experience with various stallions.
From my vast education I am able to refresh a horse’s mentality, or persevere upon a horse that has over run its’ owners strengths and experiences by restoring faith, calmness and respect into the horse as well as the owner.
I have had many clinical experiences as a rider and spectator, as well as being the clinician over the last few years .
We all have traveled our roads in life, Some of you are bankers, store keepers , clerks, iron workers, government personal, etc. You are experts in your own fields.
Let me offer you the advantages of my 45 years of professional experience with horses:
From learning to ride as a child at home on the farm, to being the North American Champion Bronc and Bull Rider, to becoming a Master Farrier (graduating from the programs at four schools), to becoming a professional trainer. Working with horses up to their first three months and onward. And five years ago, becoming a licensed racehorse trainer of winning horses.
I have a vast 25 year history of purchasing, training and retraining, then leasing and sales, with the opportunity to learn as well, from approximately 150 horses a year over the last 20 years.
If you need a hand with your horse whether he is a yearling, or 19 years old, it makes no difference. My training has always upped the value of horse and and the security of rider. It is an investment in your horse’s career, your joint success, your safety and security, for only $800 a month.
