Taylor James

I have 17 years of riding experience that started as a little girl for my 8th birthday and I was hooked. I started in 4-h and Jr rodeo. Then did jumping for a couple years. I found my love for the Arabian horse and was able to show several green horses over the years. At 14 I started apprenticing with established trainers, including Wendy Onstott, Paul Edwards and Priscilla Cluff. I had the opportunity to work in Montana as a wrangler and gained more of my own experience.


I then started my own lesson and training program 5 years ago. The last couple years I found my new passion for barrel racing and rodeo with my horse Maverick. 

I love teaching kids lessons and helping grow their passion for horses. Some of those kids now have their own horses and are able to go compete in 4-h and local shows. 

I have experience with several horse breeds and personalities. I love starting colts and putting a good foundation on them. I also will do tune ups or work with the "problem horses". I can get them patterned on the barrels and poles or get them started for western or hunter pleasure.

I'm a dressage trainer who enjoys the things dressage can do for any horse.   I have 15 years of experience both in and out of the show ring and I love to share that journey with my clients. 


I've taken both junior and adult competitors to regional competitions and high point awards, as well as taking horses in training to the same heights.  So if showing is your aim or you simply want to deepen your relationship with your horse I would love to help.
