JM Performance Horse

JM Performance Horse’s instructor, Justin Mott, grew up in the company of horses at his family’s ranch, first taking up reins at the age of 3. About eight years later, Mott handled his first horse in training. This experience prompted Mott to sharpen his understanding of natural horsemanship and study the works of Tom Dorrance, who emphasized the feel of the horse and its interplay with the handler. Today, Mott works upon the verdant hills and pastures of Sheridan Equestrian Center, training both horses and humans. In classes designed for students of all skill levels, the seasoned rider strengthens connections between man and beast while teaching posture, commands, and proper U-turn technique.

It was fun for the kids... all of them had a great time. The horses were very mellow and great with kids. We would definitely go back :):)

Great experience for my two year old son! Huge facility. Went to wrong barn at first, but trainers and staff were very helpful in finding where to send us. Justin and Ashley (I think their names) were friendly and great with the little ones. The weather was beautiful and the scenery was amazing. I look forward to seeing the photo that was taken (as part of the package). Would definetely purchase this deal again.
