Trainer Bill Schnuerle

My horse and I "now have a mutual respect and understanding for each other that we wouldn't have reached if it weren't for Bill. Bill explained and broke down every scenario that I might encounter with my horse in a way that didn't make me feel inadequate, which is so very important to me when I am trying to learn something new. He patiently explained and worked with me until I was 100% comfortable, and never let me leave the session without a question answered or a useful tip given. I can't thank him enough for the path he has put Rain and me on!" B. Jermier

"Billy is super. He is the best I've seen at evaluating the horse and rider then knowing the best steps to take in order to help them achieve success. Bonus...he does it all with happy enthusiasm." L. Frick

"Thank you Billy for helping this little guy move forward in his education. He is always calm and comfortable after your sessions which opens the door for more without him thinking he's being trained. Very proud of him and his progress! Think he's enjoying it? - I know I am." C. Robinson
