Our mission at the Mountain View Ranch is to Match the Right Horse with the Right Person so that a lifelong connection is possible. In order to achieve our mission - we offer optional services to assist prospective buyers in choosing their new equine partner and/or to help matched horses and riders leave the MVR with confidence and skills needed for a successful transition home.

I want to thank you again for one of the most enjoyable rides I've had. Your horses (Cash and Vegas) made the experience very relaxing and fun, and if I lived closer, I would sign up for lessons! You are a fantastic instructor, as well. I learned a lot from you, and much of what you said "clicked" with me for the first time. I didn't realize that I had been in the ring for two hours until I got back in my car. So please accept another $50 for your time. I really got a lot out of it, even if I had to leave Vegas behind!
This one or two day private clinic is personalized to address your unique goals. This includes:
Determining whether a perspective horse is your right match
Setting the ground work for a successful transition home with your new horse
Deciding whether horse ownership is the right choice at this time
Gaining confidence and skills in the saddle and on the ground
Learning tools to increase equine communication
Learning Natural Horsemanship training tools
Identifying problem areas in both horse and rider and finding solutions
Increased riding skill
When buying a horse or choosing a horse from the Mountain View Ranch, you can work with John and MVR staff to learn to effectively communicate your needs and learn the needs of your horse. John combines his training knowledge of your prospective horse and his teaching expertise which greatly helps in creating an understanding relationship and thus a smoother transition at your own barn. Whether you are sure of your new choice of equine partner, trying to determine a good match or just want to increase your skills – these clinics are designed to bring you confidence, connection, communication and practical skills.
