About Us:

I have been around horses my entire life, and am constantly looking at improving my education with natural horsemanship training methods. I am a graduate of Dawson Community College, Class of 2012 with an Agribusiness Associated of Applied Science, an Associate of Science degree, Equitation Associated of Applied Science degree and a livestock technician certificate.

I have taken different courses on equine nutrition, and I carry an equine nutrition certificate.

This brings over seven years of experience with young/green horses and I started my first of many colts in 2006. I have judging experience and I have competed at Montana State 4H Congress in Horse Judging for four years and have received high honors. I have also shown horses for over 16 years and have just started taking clients for starting colts in 2011. I ride both English and Western and can also give riding lessons to local clients. Contact us here.

We offer clinics and demonstrations for 4H groups, as well as other horse groups that are interested.

We also offer horse judging. Victoria Shoopman is certified in the state of North Dakota as a 4H horse judge.

Qualifications

I have more than 10 years experience with horses and over 6 experience with training horses. I have the patience to work with the horse and communicate with him to understand what he is telling me. Communication with the horse is something that will help build the horse's trust in humans as well as the confidence within himself.

 I have worked with 4H members since 2009 and have competed in horse shows since 1998; participating in English, Jumping, Western, Barrels, Poles, Trail, Ranch horse and showmanship. I have over 10 total high point awards ranging from youth awards to Junior Horse awards. I also have qualified for numerous state horse shows and have competed in horse judging events.
