Preston was drawn to train reining horses because of the high level of horsemanship, precision and finesse it requires. He also enjoys the thrill of a sliding stop and the quickness of the spin. A good reining horse is not just athletic and talented, they must also be quiet and steady. A well-trained reining horse is a joy to ride because of its willingness to listen and be guided.
Preston believes in building a strong foundation with his young horses so they continue to progress as their training continues. He knows that each horse is unique and trains them on an individual basis. Some horses learn more quickly than others. Some are naturally better at stopping, while others require more time to learn how to slide. He strives to train safe, responsive, and quiet horses that are easy and enjoyable to ride. Preston gives great attention to detail in his training program. If he notices a horse is having trouble with a certain maneuver, he will go back to the basics to help the horse understand how to move and react correctly.
He is absolutely passionate about training these horses. He has spent countless hours in the saddle learning how to be a better trainer. His expertise and experience make him invaluable to his clients. Preston enjoys working with and teaching his amateur and non-pro riders. He loves to see his clients learn to effectively communicate with their horses, and be successful in the show pen.
