Chelsea has quite the passion for the versatility ranch horse and the reined cowhorse. She currently has a yearling filly by NRCHA/AQHA stallion Cadescat that is her hopeful reined cowhorse prospect.

Chelsea does a wonderful job! Had my mare Dixie with her for 30 days. Top of the line care, communication, and Chelsea will put a solid foundation on a horse. Very patient trainer that gets the point across in a manner a horse understands. In the end Dixie trusted Chelsea and did what is asked out of respect and not fear, top notch trainer in my book. Will definitely use Chelsea's training services in the future.
