About Michael: As an instructor, I encourage both people and horses toward mutual understanding. My approach is inspired by the work, methods and ideology of the late horsemen Tom and Bill Dorrance, and Ray Hunt. I ride regularly with Buck Brannaman and consider myself blessed to be able to draw on his knowledge and years of experience. Pursuing this tradition of horsemanship should result in a horse that is easy to ride and light to your aids, being mentally engaged and enthusiastic, as well as a rider that looks like they belong on a horse and enjoy being there.
