 Buddy’s horsemanship foundation was built with the Parelli Program. He has officially assessed Level 4, with Don Halladay as his mentor. Along the way he has also had opportunity to ride with horseman such as Jack Brainard, Craig Johnson, and Martin Black.

Buddy doesn’t mind admitting that he has always dreamed about being a cowboy. So learning from the ‘real deal’, Martin Black, has been an amazing opportunity. Stockmanship, Ranch Roping, and Developing the Bridle horse have become a big part of his horsemanship journey. One of the reasons Buddy started teaching was to better prepare people to ride with Martin Black.

Life at ‘Cardinal Ranch’ has given him lots of opportunity to put learning into action. For the past 10 years he has run most aspects of the ‘Horse Development’ program for the Horse Sales at Cardinal Ranch. Years of hosting working students at Cardinal Ranch has also given him lots of opportunites to teach and encourage students.

For Buddy, ‘Doing things ‘for the horse’ and not ‘to the horse’ is paramount. Taking care of confidence for both the human and the horse is of utmost importance. Buddy sets an uncompromising example of this in his own horsemanship and teaching style. He is dedicated to a safe and fun learning environment for both horses and humans.
