"Tinker, thank you for starting my girl for me. She had a HARD ride today and did nothing wrong all day. I am so proud of her. I am comfortable with her. She is so level headed. " -M.L. 4/9/16
Here's how Millie, Joker and Patty are doing in CO. Thought you'd like to know. If this isn't a testament to the foundation you put on them and their breeding, I don't know what is -- Fwd: I just had to brag on your kids. I had a buyer come out today, whopping high of 19, a foot of snow and 20mph winds....I pulled them all out, saddled them up, tied them to the fence and just hopped on all of them. The sorrel filly cowkicked once when she tried to stop by her buddies tied up but they were great...then my neighbors come flying over on his quad, the cows are out and at the neighboring private school...you've got to be kidding me.....well, your three are already saddled, so I looked at the buyer and said, you wanna go play cowboy...let's go...I put my neighbor on The bay filly, he got on the gelding and I rode the sorrel filly and off we went to move yearlings. There were 27 of them out on the football field of the school...your kids did incredible....they were looking more at the curbs and parking lot signs then the cows as I am sure they've never had to go up curbs or weave between a baseball diamond and stands. Well we get all but 2 in and one doubles back over the fence just as we'd all gotten off our horses, and takes off down the driveway of the school to the street.....so the guy on the gelding held the gate, and off myself and my neighbor go, I mean at a full gallop, cuz by now it's probably 600 yards from us to the cow....Let me tell ya that sorrel filly can move when desired lol. It took both of us to get this darned cow back down the driveway through the football field and to the pasture and she ran at us 3x, the bay filly went right back at her ears pinned, but the sorrel actually quicker footed. We got back and the guy on the gelding was amazed, he's gotta talk his wife into letting him buy one and he doesn't think she will before xmas but said they were the nicest most level headed set of 2 yr olds he'd seen and then informed me the week before he'd been at Hawthorne and 6666 ranch trying horses. I just had to pass on that compliment to you and your kids 12-19-15
“This filly is doing more in 60 days than any other 2 year old I’ve ever had. She is smart, soft, athletic, and even helps Tinker get some cow business done I am very pleased with her progress.“
“I have my NVS Midas son currently in training under Tinker and I can endorse him without hesitation. From the beginning, Tinker gave me a time line of what I could expect to see from my horse and every time he has exceeded my expectations. Tinker is an excellent communicator and maintains open lines of communication throughout training. My horse is well kept and found Tinker accommodating for visitation or my training schedule.”
“I think Tinker is an awesome horse trainer with much knowledge to bring to the horse world!” -Brenda H.
"Sat. was mine and mom's first reining lesson on Dabble and Dixie. I was a very informative lesson. I really enjoyed the lesson and tips Thank you Tinker Turner for letting us come get a lesson I'm looking forward to our next lesson and to see our progress with the exercises you gave us to work on." -Tanya H.
“Tinker your a awesome trainer and great friend!!! Keep up the good work!”
-Lea Anne M.
“I was impressed with the way Tinker changed up the way he encouraged my horse through an obstacle she was having trouble with. He asked a couple times one way then changed it up. Didn't scare her. Waited on her to be able to do it calmly ……I now have my mare back with Tinker to be started riding. She is doing real well after one month.”
“Tinker trained a mare for me several years ago. He did an excellent job and I would use him again!”
“Took our first reining with tinker sat ,my daughter and I each had a lesson together so we can help each other at home Tinker was very helpful and encouraging can't wait till next week for more work! Yay”
