"I have had my horses trained by other big name trainers, but never have I seen a young horse come so far in such a short amount of time as he did in Bill's hands."
~ Rosie D.
"I highly recommend Bill's program to anyone that has anything to do with horses. Young or old you will learn methods that will make your training of your horse so much easier and you will develop a much deeper relationship with your horse. Thank you Bill, Jody and crew for the great clinic at the NILE. I’m so happy I was able to attend. Guess you can teach an “old dog new tricks”. Thanks again!"
~ Ed Hinton, Rafter Diamond QH
