Doug Walsh, born and raised in Colorado...
Truly, from the bottom of his feet to the top of his head, loved horses from a young age. Unfortunately, he also suffered from such horrible allergies, he could not follow his heart ... at the time.
By the grace of God, Doug’s allergies subsided as an adult. Enter Doug’s first horse! Looking at this as a fresh start, Doug began following his passion by learning about horsemanship techniques from some of the best horsemen and horsewomen in the industry.
Doug spent the last 12 years working with patience, trust and mutual respect, rehabilitating severely misunderstood horses while continuing to master the knowledge that the horses teach him.
By setting goals for himself...
Like jumping 115 m (check) and now having sites on Grand Prix level dressage, Doug utilizes his skills of timing, understanding and empathy, to build a connection strong enough to ride bridleless and work horses at liberty on the ground. He has an understanding of how a horse thinks and uses their energy as the key to implementing training tools successfully.
Doug’s specialized skill set envelopes every interaction with horses. His ability to relate with the horse, help them work through their fear, has helped him get through his own fears. This experience created a true language between horse and human.
