What we mean by this is that a horse can move his own body a whole lot easier than you can, if you have to push and pull him around every where you want him to go.
Once he gains trust and respect for you, starting with lots of ground work, he can then gain confidence in himself and become a willing partner. It will then be easier for him to learn to respond to you in a soft and willing manner under saddle as well.
With repetition, his movements will be so soft it will be like cutting butter.
We train for response.
Here at Painted Rock Ranch TX, we take a gentle approach to your horse's education.
No harsh bits
The pain just gets in the way of learning
There is no substitute for good training
The horses are not pushed and therefore:
They learn much quicker.
The results tend to last.
Your horse is:
Much more confident.
Consistent in his performance.
Light and supple in your hands.
Responds lightly to your cues.
Just think how much nicer it would be if your horse just willingly went where ever you asked him to without arguing, tossing his head, or having to drag him everywhere?
Horses are all different, and some learn faster than others, but all horses, including yours, can be trained and taught to be better performers in this manner.
SERVICES OFFERED INCLUDE BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO:
Teaching your horse to relax and be a more confident and willing partner.
Teaching your horse better response to light leg, hand and seat cues, transitions, pivot on hind or fore, sidepass etc.
Getting your horse more responsive and light in the bit, turning and stopping softer. (instead of plowing)
Teaching better ground manners, and to have respect for you and your space.
Conquering your horses fears while going over obstacles etc.
Teaching better collection and balance.
You let us know what you want for your horse.

Now Available for Mobile Training!
I'll come to your place (or to where your horse is stabled) to work with you and your horse. I offer a 1 hour session for $75 or a 2 hour session for only $125.
This works great for instance if you have a horse that is hard to trailer load, or one that's pushy on the ground and doesn't respect your space or needs better halter manners.
Also great under saddle if you need a better turn, a softer stop, or lighter back up etc. Or if all in all you just need better responsiveness to your hands, seat and leg aids.

Gina did an awesome job re-educating my 18 year old mare. She always kept me up to date on her training with her youtube videos. I got to see what Gina was doing with my horse and I was also able to see the steady progress that my mare was making. Not only did Gina re-educate my horse but she took time to teach me on how to continue on with my mares training once I got her home. Gina did wonders with my mare and I am greatly appreciative of all of her hard work!!! Thank you Gina and keep it up!

Gina trained a 3 year old paint mare for me a few years ago, and I have to say she did a FABULOUS job! Gina's techniques in her professional training and gentle hands on approach to the horse, go without saying that you will not regret your decision in choosing her to start your equine for whatever discipline you favor, Western or English riding for pleasure or the show ring! ~Susanne F.

"The 1st time I saw Gina working with her 2 year old stallion (Drake) in the round pen I was absolutely floored to find out he was so young and not gelded. She was sitting on her young horse with only a saddle and no briddle and he was so relaxed, attentive, and eager to please her every subtle request. Then we chatted away for 20 or more minutes and he never moved. I have personally watched her work with my 2 year old green belgian. She has taken her from a totally goofy, unattentive, and sometimes very bossy mare to a calm, more attentive and respectful horse that I will confidently be able to ride in just a matter of weeks. I have told her more than once she has the patience of a saint! You can rest assured your horse will be in gentle and competent hands with Gina!"~ Jill Mills Floresville, TX
You have a way with horses. The training you give your horses, is very rare in our area. I hope to be riding again soon, and HOPE to purchase a great horse from you. Thank you for your info.
