Reis Ranch Universal Horsemanship is a natural horsemanship educational program.

We are non-breed and non-dicipline specific.

My Universal Horsemanship workshops are taught in an environment where the horse is allowed to express himself. Students learn about the horse's true nature through exercises that encourage the horse to make his own decisions without restraint or force. I also teach skills that enable students to act as herd leader to their horses. Because my students work with the horse's nature instead of trying to control it, they have willing, happy, safe horses. We create the opportunity for students to make their own schedules, learn at their own pace with plenty of time to ask questions and review the progress of both horse and rider.

Quality learning environments make a difference!

One of the most important aspects to safe learning and trust between horse and human is consistency. Dennis Reis has been teaching for over 30 years. He has created a proven system with a step by step curriculum for the students to follow. Having a program to follow both at the ranch and working on your own builds confidence, safety and can create a relationship between you and your horse that you never thought possible.

Utilizing the techniques of Universal Horsemanship you will experience:
Problem Solving, Confidence Building, Leadership skills, Balanced Riding, Horse Psychology, Ground School Awareness and so much more.......
