We have a professional trainer at Painted M Ranch, Bill Walton and Elissa Grossman. Our training philosophy follows our core mission to create an environment where horses under our care can find a calm, safe, and happy home and our customers can enjoy the positive mindsets of their horses either as interested owners and/or riders.

Bill trains for Western, Roping, Cutting, and Dressage. Our training is not breed specific. Training is available to our stall, pasture and paddock boarders and those who are willing to trailer their horses to the Painted M for individual training sessions. Our high occupancy levels means that we rarely have vacant stalls for training purposes on a moments notice.

Our trainer maintains detailed records of each training session. This information is shared periodically with the horse's owner during training. We offer full training and half training. Full training includes up to five workouts per week of approximately 1 hour in length. To complete full training the horse receives 20 workouts. Full training can last more than one month.

Half training includes up to five workouts every two weeks. To complete half training the horse receives 10 workouts. Half training can last more than one month. Time attributable to training sessions includes saddling and unsaddling the horse. We believe that good rider skills need to be developed in conjunction with our training program. In support of this concept, we include one free lesson for each full month of training and one half price lesson for each half training session.
