To Get Done Sooner
Training for horses, transformational coaching for people, plus experiential retreats and events for adventure.
innovation through transformation
Training your horse to do what you want it to do, improving yourself and living life through experiences and adventure all share a common pattern. We call it the “Transformation Method.”
Most people come to us to train their horse or experience something amazing. When they leave, they find they’ve transformed the most themselves.
who we work with best
You know what you want, you know you will work hard as hell to get it, you will put the time in, you will do what ever it takes even when nobody else notices.
You started this project, it was your brilliant idea and you know that you are the only one that can do it the way you want it done.
You know how you want things to be in the end, you know there is going to be some challenges and struggles, and you also know it will be so worth it!
All you want is SAFETY, with yourself, with your spouse/partner. Your every thought and action is based on how you feel. The question of “AM I safe?” is constantly running in the back of your mind.

Have the right job, live in the right neighborhood, drive the right vehicles, do all the things to meet society’s definition of happiness. After 25 years of trying to meet the outside world’s perceived expectations of himself West finally crashed his life, lost his business, all of his money and the lifestyle toys that came along with “keeping up with the Joneses.”
