Meet Warrick
I grew up outside of Melbourne, Australia, riding horses with my father,
an accomplished horseman and rodeo cowboy. I started rodeoing at
fifteen years old in Australia and New Zealand, and came to the U.S. in
1982 to further this dream. While in Steamboat Springs, CO, I attended
a Monty Foreman clinic, which opened my eyes to a more effective way
to communicate with horses, and since then, I have never looked back.

Over the past 1
5 years, I have worked with great horsemen, such as
Jack Brainard, Buck Brannaman, Ray Hunt, Mike Major, Bryan
Neubert, and Dennis Reis. I was even privileged to spend an evening
with Tom Dorrance in his home. Each person helped me develop a
deeper understanding of horsemanship, and I try to attend their clinics
as often as possible to continue my education. I have taken this
knowledge,
transformed it, and put it into practice in order to get the
most out of horses.
My true understanding of horses has helped me
start numerous colts and hold horsemanship clinics throughout the
United States and Australia. At my clinics, I teach the fundamentals of
groundwork, which influences everything that can be done with a
horse. I also refine the rider's equitation and mounted skills through a
series of exercises that are necessary for developing a strong
foundation of trust, confidence, respect, communication, and control.
In less time than most expect, the horse’s natural reactions are
directed into the proper responses.
The wonderful thing about natural
horsemanship is that it applies to any

breed, experience level, or discipline of
riding. Additionally, everything is
accomplished without the use of
mechanical devices or forceful techniques.

I welcome any opportunity to help others
establish an effective relationship with
their horse. People frequently come to me
frustrated because their horse will not
cooperate nor responds to their cues. By
showing others a better and safer way to
communicate with their horse, people
leave my clinics with the power and
knowledge to accomplish what they want.
Teaching horsemanship,
not forcemanship.™
