My wife Lian and I have loved horses since we were both children.
When she and I first met, we shared all the different things we would love to have in our lives. Next to always being together no matter what and having a loving family raised according to the Lord's Word, horses were at the very top of our list. Our dream was to have a ranch and to raise Arabians and Quarter horses.
We visited with people in the industry, and we took riding lessons from Tim and Lisa Stanton from Ontario. We learned a lot from our friends for which we are very thankful, and we also bought some horses.
One year later, we found and bought our home - a beautiful ranch. We brought the horses we had purchased to the ranch, we got set up, and invited Craig Cameron to visit with us for three days.
What a horseman! We had a lot of fun and our knowledge expanded.
Then we invited Craig and Ginger Schmersal to our ranch for three days. Craig coached us on how to show horses and that was a great experience.
A few months later, we called Andrea Fappani and invited him to visit with us. He was here with us for three days and it was a tremendous experience. Not only did Andrea share his training techniques, we forged a bond with each other and we are taking Andrea's lead in training and breeding our reining horses.
A few months later, we called Bob Hart and he visited with us for three days. During those three days, we learned things about the horses mind that were amazing. Bob said to me "Henry there are horses and there are good horses and there are great horses. I want to work with great horses.". I know that a long lasting relationship with Bob is at hand. We are taking Bob's lead and direction with our Arabian horses in training and breeding.
With these great men, we are forging ahead with our dreams, and looking forward to producing great reining and western pleasure horses.
