Private Coaching Instruction

at Wil Howe Ranch or your own facility

 

 

Wil & Beverly offer private training instruction lessons that can be customized for your personal needs. These can be arranged by appointment in between our regularly-scheduled school classes, and can be two-to ten-day events for just you, your family, or a select group. Private Instruction sessions are ideal for new WHR gelding clients to learn how to correctly handle, ride, and maintain their new horse.

We enjoy this informal format, as we can get down to the "nitty gritty" of each of your needs and spend as much time as required to address them. Focusing on particular areas gives you the opportunity to reach your personal goals, building from one skill to the next with your horse. 

Using our From Foundation to Finished© principles, we offer a variety of areas to choose from with specific goals to help you progress:

 

  •   Ground Work Horsemanship - Establishing & Reinforcing Leadership

  •   Riding & Horsemanship Lessons w/Arena Pattern Work & Exercises

Month-Long Horsemanship Training Instruction Sessions

 

This special program for dedicated horsemanship students offers a month-long extended Horsemanship Training session. There will only be one or two students for each session, so it is a unique opportunity to really grow and advance your horsemanship and see both you and your horse progress as you acquire skills that will move you ahead.  Whether it's just to pursue a personal passion or to work towards making a career of training horses, you'll learn up-close and personal what Wil & Beverly have spent a lifetime to acquire and refine. No other experience can replace being in that presence, day in and day out, participating in the daily ranch activities and working the WHR horses. Hands-on horse training From Foundation to Finished, the Wil Howe Way...which really is a way of life.
