- Jeff was born into a family of horse lovers – both of his parents ride horses and family trail rides were common occurrences while Jeff was growing up. “Our horses weren’t fancy – they were just backyard pets, but we put a lot of miles on them going on trail rides and overnight camping trips,” he says.
- A 4-year-old, unstarted mare turned Jeff on to the Method. He was 13 at the time and realized his horsemanship knowledge was lacking. A friend loaned him one of Clinton’s training tapes, and the young horseman became hooked on the Method.
- When he was in high school, Jeff established a small business training horses for the public, and with the support of his family and good friends, he applied to the Academy after he graduated high school.
- Jeff sees every training horse he works with as a learning opportunity. “I can honestly say that each horse has bettered me as a horseman,” he says.
Jeff is excited to empower horsemen by helping them learn the Method and develop safer and more enjoyable partnerships with their horses.
