“It’s really amazing what a horse will do for you if he understands what you want and it’s also quite amazing what he’ll do to you if he doesn’t.”

“The horse is doing one of two things: he’s doing what he thinks he’s supposed to do, or he’s doing what he thinks he has to do to survive.”

Our Vision

At Donohue Horsemanship we are dedicated to both the growth of our horses and our students. We believe in seeing the best in every horse, and helping each one reach their fullest potential. Every horse is different, but if you listen to them, and work hard, you will learn to adjust so that they can learn to understand what it is you want. We believe that when a horse is approached this way, he will do the best for the human that he can.

We will work with each student to help them develop into not only the best horseman they can be, but their best self. As students ourselves, we continue not only to work on becoming better horsemen, but also better teachers and better people. We envision a horse world where people can put their egos aside, work with the horse and not against him, and approach the study of horsemanship in the manner that is most fitting to the horse.

We would love for you to join us on this journey.
