Naomi trained our young Shire this year, and within 4 months, we have him out trail riding with confidence. She also identified some issues with his teeth that made for a much happier boy.
Her slow but steady approach helped to train us too. Highly recommend!
Naomi did an amazing job with my 3yr old. I'd highly recommend her to train anyone's horse.
When we got amber she was a wild 4 yr old that would rear over every little thing & was impossible to catch. She had spent the first 4 years of her life out in a field of horses with a halter & lead rope on all the time. The only time she was caught was if they could snatch the lead rope when she walked by. She was also abused & neglected which only added to her mistrust of people. After a year of working with her we could catch almost every time & got her to trust us & to the point that she was ready to be started under saddle. We were very particular about where she would go for training given her past & how long it had taken her to come around. When we saw Naomi in action, we knew immediately that if anybody could work with amber to get past her issues it would be her. Sure enough after the 60 days were up, Amber can now be ridden walk/trot/lope & we have a much better understanding of her issues & how to continue on with her training. The things we appreciated the most about Amber’s training with Naomi was that she gave weekly updates, asked questions throughout the 60 days, put her well being first & fore most, & was willing to try different methods to get through to her. I never dreamed Amber would be able to do half the things Naomi has accomplished with her & I will gladly recommend her to anyone looking for a quality trainer.
I’ve witnessed first hand the turn around in horses once Naomi has had time with them. She also is, in my opinion, the best communicator with people. So it’s great to have a wonderful horse trainer but if they can not communicate with the human partner, it is less effective. The young lady was definitely born to train horses she is amazing!
Naomi is an excellent trainer! She took on my introverted and very strong-willed 4-year-old mustang born in Theodore Roosevelt National Park. He was sold at auction to me as a weanling. Even though he was gentled and very well-mannered for me from my golf cart (I have pretty severe balance & walking issues) he needed to make his next step to be my trail riding partner.
Soldier had to spend almost one year at Naomi’s “boarding school” where he was not the best student (that’s a big understatement!). Naomi persisted with him and included me with clear explanations about each step of his education.
I am so pleased that now that he has been home for 3 weeks, I am taking him on short trail rides through our woods, up and down hills and through water. He is very soft and steady.
Thank you Naomi!
Spin to Win is the place to go if you want your horse to be the best he can be through giving the horse the chance to make the right choice easy, the wrong choice hard, setting boundaries and expectations with kindness and superb care.
Naomi is truly talented and patient! She took my anxious, panicky 13y/o OTTB mare for 60 days and was able to redirect and retrain some pretty unpredictable behaviors. Naomi gave me updates on progress and "tools" to help me maintain a quiet and obedient horse. My mare care home with some great liberty training that helps me to build confidence and develop teamwork with my horse. I am ecstatic with her training and will continue to take liberty lessons with Naomi! Highly recommend her services!
Very happy with Naomis work. She is currently training my Gypsy Vanner stallion going on three months now. Superb.
I just want to say thank you so much to Naomi for helping my troubled horse, Ludwigg, for trailer problems who hasn't loaded in 6 years and she got him to trailer within a couple of days in and out and I really appreciate it. time to practice & more to come this summer. I highly suggest having her train or help your horse if you need it. Five stars for me!
Just had the opportunity of participating in a 2 day clinic followed by a private lesson. Naomi was an incredibly helpful trainer, patient, humble, and kind. She's very easy to get along with. My horsemanship level just went up a notch with all that I learned. If you have the chance to ride with Naomi, you should take it.
Naomi is a brilliantly balanced, professional horse trainer. I've enjoyed getting to know Naomi over the last year and a half. She is personable and takes the time to understand where you and your horse are in your journeys. Her approach respects the horse and human as individuals, but she also knows when to push to build confidence under pressure. I love how she blends biomechanics, emotions and practical horsemanship into her work. No matter where you are in your equine journey, I highly recommend Naomi!
