 I have had many highlights in my years as a professional horsemen. Working, training and riding with some of the worlds best horse trainers such as Josh & John Lyons is a privilege and honor I will always be thankful for. Having the opportunity to work with celebrity Harrison Ford and his horses would give me a sense of accomplishment as a Professional Horse Trainer.

 I have spent many years accumulating the experience and knowledge that allows me to offer the training programs/trail riding packages through Complete Horsemanship, Ranch at the Canyon Trail Rides and Smith Rock Trail Rides. I have guided trips professionally in Alaska, Mexico, Wyoming (including Yellowstone National Park), Montana, Idaho and Oregon over the last 16 years. In addition I have conducted clinics, performed demonstrations, participated in trainers challenges, and have worked privately with clients across the United States and Canada.


 Since May of 2015 my wife Melanie and I enjoy living in Terrebonne, Oregon with our (5) horses, (4) dogs, and (2) cats. I truly have been blessed to do what I do for a living. Training horses, working with clients and teaching them how to maintain that training is a job I look forward to each day. Being able to offer trail riding packages with some of the most spectacular views in Central Oregon (Smith Rock State Park & Ranch at the Canyons) is another amazing opportunity I never take for granted.
