Horsemanship

Laurie and Tom, Walton, KS.

My husband and I were looking for someone to train our 6 year old appaloosa colt. We were expecting the ‘same old, same old’ type of training… you know… drop the horse off for a 30 day start. Matt’s approach turned out to be different. He not only trained the horse, he trained us on […]

“I met a man who talks to horses. No, I really mean it. He communicates with horses. They meet, do a little dance and decide to work together, and rest is a working relationship between horse and man, built on trust. It’s amazing to see. I’ve always been sort of an outlaw, renegade, type A […]

“Matt you have helped me tremendously with my understanding of my own horses.  After the day we spent together I starting taking what I learned and working with my lead mare.  I had been so frustrated going out to the pasture and having to chase her down just to go riding.  Now I can kiss […]

“I am a first time horse owner who fell in love with 2 horses that had very little done with them.  I have been trying to train my horses myself with some success.  However, during saddle work, my arab/paso cross gelding, spooked and then kicked and bucked until the saddle came off. Afterwards, I had been unable to get a blanket, […]

“I’ve seen Matt start two colts that each had very different temperaments.  He was riding each horse, without the horses reacting aggressively  within one to three hours!  His training style is a low-key, unagressive approach and he’s so comfortable in the round pen that the horses immediately react appropriately and are engaged.  It’s a very different style than the traditional methods that […]

“I have had the undeniable pleasure of working with Matt on several occasions. I was fortunate to attend one of his 2- day clinics. I took a 4 yr old greenbroke gelding I had just purchased the week before, and never ridden. In a few short hours, I was riding my gelding in just a rope […]

“My Daughter and I took the Bridging the Gaps two day clinic with Matt Janzen in November 2009. Wow, I learned several things about horses that I did not know and about ourselves. Day One- we did ground work and worked on getting in tune with our horses. My daughter was there and we really had a […]

As a new horse owner I needed training myself and confidence in working with my gelding, Dakota,of the Rocky Mountain breed. I’ve had him since the day he was born and had developed a great relationship with him, but as I said, I was a new horse owner. When Dakota become of age, I sent […]
