Over the years I have watched Richard Shrake as he perfected his methods of Resistance Free training and riding. Not only is Richard a dynamic trainer, teacher and horseman, he is an every day person who will take the time to answer questions and visit with every person. As  a highly respected judge for many breeds, as well as a top clinician, Richard brings a world of knowledge to his work. That knowledge not only includes proven techniques for training horses, but also a wonderful way of training riders to work in harmony with their horses. It is a humane and highly effective system that teaches respect for the horse and builds self-confidence in the rider.
