Why would you choose to ride with Tony and Jennifer Vaught?
Tony and Jennifer are committed to developing a harmonious relationship between horse and human. They reach for excellence in all that they do and teach, and they will help you to "see" what they "see."
The horse you have always dreamed of is inside the horse you already have.
|How does your horse see you?
The "pair bond" is the strongest emotional bond between a foal and its mother. This bond is what keeps the foal at its mother's side, even when crossing raging waters, negotiating deep ravines, or any number of dangerous or "perceived" dangerous situations. Building a partnership with your horse can relay this same "pair bonding" trust in your horse. A confident horse needs a confident rider, that is what Tony and Jenny seek to give you - confidence and knowledge. They will help you build leadership skills that will help your horse see you the same way as it saw its mother. In order for there to be a harmonious relationship the horse must be convinced that a human will not compromise its safety.
Jenny and Tony Vaught studied as Parelli Professionals and are committed to Natural Horsemanship. They have also ridden with Leon Harrel, World Champion Cutting Horse Trainer, Jack Brainard, legendary trainer, breeder and teacher who produced some of the world's greatest reining horses, Ted Robinson, multiple winner of the Snaffle Bit Futurity and World's Greatest Horseman Award, and Ronnie Willis, one of Pat Parelli's mentors. Both Tony has won the MFTHBA World Championship in Ranch Horse Versatility for the past 3 years.

Many times a horse will come home from the trainer who can ride them and get great results - but when the owner climbs aboard, it doesn't seem to be working as well. The clinics and camps that Tony and Jennifer conduct will allow you and your horse to reach new levels of trust and companionship. Using Principles of Natural Horsemanship, Tony and Jennifer can help you reach confidence levels at your and your horse's pace.
