Brandi has been quite fortunate to get the chance

 to work under/with a large variety of

different trainers (breed, backgrounds &

specialties ranging from trail horses, show

jumping, to stunt horses and western pleasure). 

She has also had the opportunity to work with a

large range of types & breeds of horses, working

with all types of stock horses, thoroughbreds,

Arabians, morgans, a variety of pony breeds, 

a variety of draft breeds and even showing

both Caspian horses & Gypsy Vanners.

Brandi has a training approach that would be best described as 'Natural traditional horsemanship'. This is an approach that takes full consideration of not only the horses body and mind (and how they work together), but the desire for longevity in a long term relationship with your horse.
