  on what the horse is to be trained for and the horse's personality and previous training. will depend on what he will learn, how long it will take to learn.

About the Trainer

I have been training horses since I was 12.I grew up on a farm in wisconsin. I have been a life long 4-H member(12 years as member, 3 as leader), including the 4-H horse council.Now a horse focused 4-H club leader. I love being in rodeos, I have been a candidate for rodeo queen several times, and on a drill team. I love to trail ride, barrel race, and see how much speed and athleticism I can get out of a horse.Most of all i love horses and want to take them to their full potential and want the horse to enjoy what he does.

My training methods include a mixture of Clinton Anderson,  and some of my own cowgirl technique. I work to become the horses leader, so they look to me and are willing to do what I ask. I don't believe in beating them into submission or letting them walk all over me either. I teach the horse to move off pressure and give to pressure. First on the ground, then until I feel the horse is willing to stand to be saddled, move off of pressure and, listen to cues like whoa on the ground, I don't get on their back till then. when you have the respect and control on the ground it makes the first ride a smoothtransition.

Kaci Chapman has shown at many local and 4-H shows,concentrating on improving  and teaching a horse instead of a big prize.If the horse doesnt have good times at the local arena why would he if we went to a big show. Kaci has shown mostly barrels,poles and trail rode. however she has also shown in western pleasure,huntseat,hunter hack,reining,showmanship and trail.

A few awards she holds are; top horse exhibitor at co. fair, 2nd in saddle type showmanship(MO state fair, 36 entries), allaround speed at SW regional 4H show, this was her first huntseat show and recived high placings.  at tri county youth show took 3rd in foxtrotter barrels at her 3yrolds first show.
