Trust can be earned in a day, lost in a moment, and take a lifetime to rebuild.
Here at Viking Ranch we pride ourselves in Natural Horsemanship. Allowing the horse to take the time that’s needed to learn each task that is given. We treat each horse like an individual and give them the attention and training they learn best from.
Taking some of the most basic instincts from the horse and allowing them to learn from them. Horses are fight or flight animals, which means they will run from anything they think will harm them (Even if we don’t think that in our minds.) If cornered they will fight till they get free.
We make sure every horse has as much ground work covered as possible before we get on their back. When that’s achieved, then the horse won’t mind your legs bumping the sides or strings dangling or the saddle. Ground work is the ultimate pay off.
I have dedicated over 20+ years to horse industry. I train, breed and show my own horses, I have recently (2012 - current) started doing more of this for clients horses as well. With all the knowledge I've gained over the years, with training, nutrition, hauling and so much more. It give me an edge on the horse world. I love starting colts and give them a foundation needed to make a solid, well mannered horse.
I have trained a few wild horses to ones that need finishing, every horse gets equal attention from me. I have also shown and ridden several disciplines over the years.

I also teach Mounted Archery, though everything is taught from the ground first.
I have always had a passion for horses. Even at a young age before I ever owned a real horse. My passion started with just plastic toy horses to Grand Champion collectables. From there I collected Breyer models. That I later started to customize into my own pieces of work. Once real horses became a part of my life, I have been hooked ever since. Now I breed and train horses. Mostly for myself until the last several years (2020). I have been training for other people since. (2015 - 2021 to current). I mostly deal with problem horses, horses that need more time under saddle. I have experience with BLM Mustangs, foals, mares, geldings, and stallions. I specialize in mules, barrels, basic training, and patients. I can take some of the most ill tempered horses and make them willing partners. I love to ride bareback to feel the horse as it moves naturally. One of my other specialties is liberty training. I am getting myself back into jousting and going to take a swing at mounted archery. I have worked with and owned many breeds of horses.
Our prices are cut into affordable packages to help those that can’t afford to pay those $1,000 a month training fees. Board is included in all our training prices. Which includes feeding 3x daily and supplements while in training.
