IDAHO HORSE EXPO’S PRIVATE TREATY HORSE SALE
APRIL 15,16 &17,2016

Although the logical alternative to finding horses is to buy directly from the owner by going through publications, scheduling appointments (and finding that the horse is not what was represented); this can be time consuming and frustrating.

Horsemen’s Western Dressage ,About Horsemen’s Western Dressage
Horsemen’s Western Dressage’s experience has been developed and honed through the years within the Villasenor family. The Villasenor family has a long history of outstanding horsemanship, experience and traditions have been passed down through the generations. As a young boy in Mexico it was Ruben Villasenor, owner of Horsemen’s Western Dressage, responsibility to tame wild horses that were rounded up in the mountains of Jalisco. As a child he knew little about the processes involved but dedicated himself to earning the trust and respect of those wild horses. Now, as the owner of Horsemen’s Western Dressage, he works with all breeds of horses and train for all disciplines. HWD believes that the more we teach our horses the more capable and dedicated they will be to our relationship with them.
Horsemen’s Western Dressage utilizes a unique the methods with a Bosal. HWD offers their clients and the public a new and fresh approach to the correct use and fit of this very effwctive but often misunderstood tool.
HWD’s training techniques are good for the horse and easy for the horseperson to understand and implement.
