Find Freedom, Independence and Adventure with your HORSE.

Learn habits, skills and techniques of a Horseman.

Is this clinic right for you and your horse?

For All Age Horses no matter their level of experience. We will teach you how to become a Confident Leader no matter the breed you have or the discipline you ride or show in.

Often times horses are started in a training program and many areas of communication and relationship building are skipped or even completely missed. This is where some of our issues with our equine partners that we are not happy with come from. Their education missed some important subjects and lessons. Our plan is to help you get your horse started on the right hoof or to fill in those missing parts.

During our Foundation Training week you will learn the language of Horse to better open up those lines of communication while developing a relationship in order to build confidence in yourself and your horse. No matter the age or experience every horse and rider team can benefit by either getting the conversation started with your horse or moving up to a more refined/higher level of communication.  

Each horse & rider team will have an individualized program for the week to ensure you move further faster in your horsemanship. We understand that not everyone is in the same place on their horsemanship journey.

Horsemanship is a lot about problem solving and knowing what to do when. That is where the foundation training & fundamentals come in and help you work through a problem that you may be having with your horse. 

The week long format will allow you and your horse to develop a pattern of habits and techniques to boost your horsemanship to the next level.

We are excited to share that Joe & Penny Most were the Winners of the AQHA Trail Challenge Event hosted by AQHA in MO for the 2015 & 2016. They spend many hours on the trail and enjoy riding all over the United States. Their goal is for you to enjoy your horse as much as they enjoy theirs. You can find out more about our life with horses, experiences and more on our website at  

Perfect Partners Equine (PPE) can help you to live the dream with your horse. Joe and Penny Most have dedicated their lives to learning about the horse. They have also devoted themselves to understanding how to teach others to effectively communicate, understand and enjoy their horses. They have won the buckles and the ribbons, but the biggest reward is sharing their knowledge with others.

With 20 years experience in conducting clinics and over 40 plus years of training, handling, breeding showing, traveling and living with horses we have a lot of useful knowledge to help you go further faster with your horse.
