Horse Training, Lessons, Retreats and Camps in Enterprise, OR
Dun the Right Way Horses specializes in custom horse training, specialized lessons, high quality horse breeding and endless adventures when you attend one of our retreats or clinic. We truly love our job and it shows in everything that we do.
Our highly successful training program implements various strategies to expose your horse to a wide variety of circumstances so when your horse encounters "life happenings" it will refer to the thinking side vs.... (read more) the reactive side of the brain. We will expose your horse to the "tree of knowledge", saddling, tying, trailering(loading & hualing), clipping, as well as mastering all of the groundwork exercises in and out of the round pen. Your horse will have a very well rounded education when he leaves our ranch!
Our outstanding breeding program offers your mare the safety she deserves while preserving breeding lineage by only breeding to mares that meet our strict standards. We firmly believe in our stallions maintaining respect for your mare at all times and will do everything that is needed to make sure that her breeding experience is safe, productive, and never compromising of any morals--human or equine. Our stallions are respectful to our Ranch guests, our own herd, our staff, and your mare.
I am beyond passionate when it comes to horse training. I do not approach my passion with just one way or the highway approach, but factor in many different things to make it a successful adventure. I study many different horsemanship greats like Chris Cox, Clinton Anderson and Stacy Westfall and know that learning a little from each one is all part of the puzzle to success.
When I first am approached about taking a horse into training, I always like to take the time to meet with the owner and the horse. I like to sit back and listen to what the Owner says about the horse, observe how they interact with each other, and I "listen" to the horse talk through it's body language. Then, after this first meeting, I will give you a questionnaire packet. This is full of all sorts of questions on your experiences, the horses experiences, goals, fears, etc. After reviewing the packet, I can then help you determine how much time I think your horse needs to be in training to reach your end goal. Here is where I differ from others, though. I will not take your horse if I do not think we can accomplish your end goal by the timeframe (or budget) you have allowed. Happy horse owners and horses are my main goals.
