Andrew Sack Horses
Training Philosophy

Andrew's methods are to provide the horse with the tools necessary to be able to think and respond to situations rather than react to them. He begins by asking simple responses from the horse, and when the horse delivers, it is rewarded with release and praise. Within minutes, he can have a previously unmanageable horse performing in a more relaxed manner, and have a willingness to learn more.

Training mistakes can create problems that last a horse's life time. Andrew believes that training by the use of force only creates problems for the horse and rider. He teaches the horse that there is a right way and a wrong way. If the horse does the right thing, life should be more comfortable than if he does the wrong. Consistency and positive reinforcement will create a horse who seeks to do what you ask him to do.

I was having problems with my mustang that I had raised since she was 7 months old. I was handed this filly and I had never trained a horse in my life. I came to a point in her training that I could no longer ride because she had become an unsafe horse. In just a one hour session Andrew pinpointed that my horse didn't understand what I was asking her. Also since I wasn't a seasoned  rider I was constantly off balance. Andrew jumped on her and within a few minutes I saw that she wasn't a dangerous horse, in fact she was very willing once she knew what the rider was asking for. Andrew helped me gain confidence in my riding and taught me how to communicate with my horse.
