Training

"Don't make them perform, make them want to perform."

Recognizing the horse’s strong and weak points, finding out how the horse prefers to work, and what makes them the happiest is crucial to a successful training program. This involves getting your equine athlete comfortable in their training and, equally important, their mind and body.

Brad's experience in adapting training methods while holding principles constant has enabled him to achieve success with a wide variety of horses and riders. His skill in uncovering the basis of problems and treating horses as individuals enables him to formulate training strategies for his students that keep them progressing between clinics and lessons. Sound theories, realistic application, and a true love for the art of dressage make him a popular trainer, instructor, and clinician throughout the Midwest.

Brad utilizes his in-hand training and extensive riding experience to optimally enhance your horse's muscular development, technical skills and balance.

“My training goal is that each of our trainers would be the best we can be...to emphasize strong basics--good gaits, and a happy horse. To develop a core partnership between horse and rider. To make sure aids are understood from horse to rider and advance from there. To recognize the rider's desires and goals, and to understand your horse's needs.” -Brad Cutshall, Owner/Head Trainer
