Faith Stevenson was born into a family of horsemen and knew at the age of 8 that she wanted to be a horse trainer. Her parents own and operate an Angus cattle ranch in Montana and horses are used for daily tasks. Growing up in the environment, Faith was in the saddle daily and was actively involved in 4-H and FFA and later the Montana Quarter Horse Association. The passionate horsewoman earned many accolades in each organization at local, state and national levels.
The Stevensons stumbled upon the Method when Faith was 11. “We bought a show prospect who had a bad habit of pulling back when tied up,” Faith says.
Her instructor pointed her to Clinton’s No Worries Tying DVD. “That fixed the problem, and from that point on I was hooked on the Method,” Faith says. “So many people don’t take the time to understand how their horses think; they try to force their horses into doing what they want. I liked how Clinton focused on the psychology of how horses think and act and explained how to make your idea your horse’s idea.”
Faith decided then that she would enroll in the Academy. Throughout the years leading up to her study at the ranch, she saw many successes in the show pen and eventually began training horses for the public and giving lessons. “I’ve been in love with horses my whole life, and helping other people make progress with their horsemanship is extremely rewarding,” she says.
As a Method Ambassador, Faith is dedicated to helping others improve their horsemanship and training horses for the public as well as getting back in the show pen. “There’s a need for good horsemanship, and the Method is the perfect solution,” she says. “I love being around people who are excited about bettering their horsemanship.”
