Update Fall 2013:
John is currently attending Piedmont VA Community College to finish up a 2yr Associate of Science degree before applying to UVA for a BS degree in Exercise Science. John is also working part time at ACAC in Charlottesville as a Personal Trainer. John is still available for horse work or personal fitness consultations. Give him a call or send an email.
I am passionate about educating the horse. I love to watch them learn. I believe in doing what fits the horse and what makes sense to him. I have no need for surcingles, draw-reins, martingales or other equipment that forces our needs on the horse. I'm interested in building a working relationship through trust and respect based on common sense. I am here to help you and your horse find TRUE UNITY and willing two-way communication. Through the establishment of this communication your horse will become more gentle and supple. Here the horse becomes calm through education and not medication. I work with the horse's mind, body and spirit. This way applies to all disciplines....English or Western.
I'm also doing some personal fitness training. I specialize in riders fitness, but can set-up a program for anyone. As with the horse, I adjust fit the person's needs. We are located about 30 minutes from Charlottesville and 15 minutes from Culpeper and HITS in the heart of Central Virginia Hunt Country. We have 4 hunt fixtures with riding distance of place. Our nearest map point is Locust Dale, VA. Go to the mercantile page for John's books, halters and flags. We look forward to helping you and your equine friend. If you want to come visit, Please leave your DOGS home. Thank you.
