“How can I help you?”
Proving expertise with horses is easy – let me work with one. I’m a best-selling author, World and National Champion horse trainer and breeder, former business consultant, motivational speaker, and serial entrepreneur.
Following seven years in ministry, I’m back in business. As an author, equine clinician, teacher, and resource to Christians in a post-Christian world trying to do better – or do something different.
If there’s anything special about me at all, it’s that I’m profoundly simple. It wasn’t always that way. Some of the more interesting lessons I learned about simplicity came from the stallions I trained over many years. The only way to get a 1500-pound hairy mass of testosterone to offer obedience and loyalty is to earn it. You can’t fool God and you can’t fool a horse.
My best skill set stands on a rock-solid foundation of simplicity. If you need help identifying options and choosing the direction you want to go, I can help. Every challenge and opportunity can be simply stated as, “Which do you prefer, A or B?” I won’t say my methods are 100% successful – but they haven’t failed yet.
I’ve been a success and a failure. No one has it all and no one has nothing. One thing we all share is being imperfectly human. I’ve written some great stuff, some good stuff, and some other stuff. What I know, I try to share.
Every Christian is both disciple and evangelist. What differs from one New Creation to the next is his or her degree of commitment and awareness. Effective disciples are both leaders and followers because proper authority is always balanced by equal humility. Whether in person or in print, I challenge others to think or act in ways that produce predictably positive results.
Breeder – Trainer – Judge
I was privileged to train, breed, foal mares, stand stallions, judge shows in the USA and Europe, teach, haul, grow and bale hay, breed a few calves and donkeys, as well as provide expert witness in court as a Certified Equine Appraiser. From my first horse to the big training facilities, I lived horses – horses – horses for decades.
Life Before Horses
Motivational Speaker – Business Consultant
When I was young (and didn’t know any better) I purposefully structured my resume to be qualified as a general business consultant (except for computers!) Keypunch was still part of every collegiate business program when I started out. Eventually I specialized in service and marketing. As a motivational speaker my goal was to help people change their lives. The main difference between then and now is that now I know where the truths I shared then are found in God’s Word.
