I took my purebred Arabian mare, Secret, to Cindy for a month of training and to work on selling her. Secret had a good start on her under saddle but still needed some finishing touches. Cindy did lots of desensitizing work with Secret to get her more used to things. She also worked with Secret on bending and encouraging her to relax under saddle. After only a month of being in Cindy’s care, Secret really transformed, she became much more relaxed on the ground, as well as with tack. For instance, one day when we went to visit Secret, Cindy hoisted a big western saddle on to Secret’s back and she didn’t even flinch. Prior to going to Cindy’s Secret minded just when I would put my light English saddle on her back, she’d fidget around in the cross ties and just simply wouldn’t stand still. Cindy did a great job helping Secret to learn how to relax and stand quietly to be saddled, as well as further developing her canter work and teaching her to bend and give to the bit. She was always patient with Secret and did an excellent job keeping me updated on her progress; she sent pictures and videos often to ensure my girl was doing well. Cindy also helped me to find Secret a perfect home, one in which I know Secret will receive lots of love and be spoiled. Most importantly, Cindy was so friendly, laid back, and outgoing which is sometimes so difficult to find with horse people. I highly recommend Cindy to anyone looking for a trainer for either themselves or their horse. She is very knowledgeable with horses and just an all-around pleasant and professional person to be around and work with.

Cindy is correcting behavior problems that my horse "Luke" developed from an extended layoff period. Cindy keeps me informed of Luke's progress, and many times sends videos of training sessions. I have every confidence in Cindy's ability to retrain my horse to be a safe, reliable partner, and am looking forward to him again being one of my favorite mounts - thanks to Cindy's caring for the safety of myself and "The Lukester".

I chose to raise a foal and break it myself (with only past riding experience and no training experience). Well let's just say, I missed the basics, but do have a rather satisfactory trail horse. Unfortunately, because I missed a few steps, trailer loading became the issue upon which my mare and I had strong disagreements. I could get her on with weeks of coaxing and patience and the minute I tied her up, she would explode and it would take weeks of coaxing to get her back on again.

I contacted Cindy and was impressed with her ability to load my horse in a couple of hours and the patience and diligence she applied to the lesson. While sometimes overwhelming, Cindy is more than willing to impart all of her training knowledge as she goes through the process to ensure that when left on your own, you can take steps to continue to re-enforce desireable behavior.

Anyway, Cindy loaded my mare and we trailered her to Cindy's location for a month of basic training, to include. "Human leadership, horse follower 101 - how to lead, lunge and take direction from humans" "Standing patiently while tied - no pulling, pawing or pushing" and most important to me, "Load on the trailer in 5 minutes or less - which apparently has the other two training courses as pre-requisites".

The results have been quite lovely. I am able to load my mare without a fuss, and I am relatively confident that if she were to refuse, that I would know what steps to take to effectively load her (fortunately I haven't had to find out yet).

I have experienced Cindy Jewart to be a very knowledgeable person
when it comes to horses. She has helped us with several different ones
we have had with problems. She has always turned them around.
And sometimes it was me instead of the horse she fixed. I have become
a much better rider and handler of my horse with her help.
