Trainer David Kelly  


David Kelly specializes in training Tennessee Walkers, Spotted Saddle, Rocky Mountain, Standard bred, Racking and gaited horses.  David has twenty years experience in training gaited horses.  His training is based on using natural horsemanship techniques to bring out the horse's natural genetic ability to perform their gaits within their conformational build, for trail, endurance obstacle or show.

No Mechanical devices of any kind, such as chains or chemicals are ever used on any horse at A Walking Horse Ranch.  If you are looking for your horse to do an artificial gait with the above, your horse will not be accepted here for training.

We accept a limited number of outside horses for training at A Walking Horse Ranch.  We do have some requirements for all horses coming here to work with us.

  1. They must be current on all vaccinations and worming.  They must have a Negative Coggins within 12 months for Texas.  Other time frames may apply for out of state horses.

  2. They must be sound, healthy, and in good flesh.

  3. Any wolf teeth should have been extracted, a dental float within the last 6 months.

  4. NO horse under 2 years old will be accepted for under-saddle training.  We have colt starting and beginning ground training for weanlings to 2 years old.

  5. We cannot accept stallions for training, due to space limitations at our facility.
