The Goal

A forward, relaxed, trustworthy horse with a desire to please is Angie’s goal for your colt. Angela’s approach is an “ask” not “make” attitude. Angela specializes in teaching respect instead of fear and intimidation, her philosophy is “starting” a horse not “ breaking” it. With much time commitment and daily lessons, the colt can meet these goals.
