"Often it takes great courage to be gentle"  

MEET THE TEAM

Working alongside OH and branching out the services we offer, we have teamed up with like minded professionals who follow and live within the OH way of thinking.  These professionals continue the foundation training principles into their work with the horse.  Meaning the horse and owner receive the highest possible service. 

DAMIAN JONES who has trained in the USA with a John Lyons certified trainer and in Germany and the UK with natural horsetrainers in the race industry has developed his horsemanship skills over the past 12 years using techniques that have been passed on and some of his own original ideas. Damian rides part-time with the Knights of the Damned jousting stunt team nationwide when his schedule allows. He has backed and brought on over 200 horses and worked with many so called problem horses and maintains the philosophy that the horse wants and needs to be balanced mentally and emotionally and its our job to assist them in reaching this goal. He draws inspiration from the Native American mindset to horses and animals in general. This mindset being that we work in partnership with our horses and become one. We must operate without ego and without human result driven agendas, to allow our minds to be open enough to take the path that each individual horse must follow.
