"To change your horse, you must first change yourself"

Mangold Ranch's premier service is our comprehensive horse training program, specializing in natural horsemanship and horse training in Buffalo, NY. We work with horses from the ground up, building a solid foundation of skills. Our trainers initiate, desensitize, tune-up, offer deluxe trail horse training, and complete horses with various skill sets tailored to client requirements. Throughout the training process, we keep horse owners informed and provide a one-hour lesson each week for both the horse and owner, focusing on fostering a balanced relationship.


Renowned for rehabilitating horses with behavioral issues, Mangold Ranch Versatility is the go-to place for dealing with dangerous or unruly horses. Our mission is to instill confidence in riders from the ground up, teaching high-quality skills to both horses and riders for a safe, healthy partnership. Become your horse's compassionate leader, acquire skills to be proud of, and join our supportive community of like-minded equestrians. Our facility is brimming with wonderful people committed to practicing excellent horsemanship.


Mark Mangold, a natural horsemanship master trainer, has taught his children the art of horsemanship from the ground up. Although semi-retired, Mark remains actively involved in our training program on a select basis.

Our programs prioritize rider safety and teach essential skills from the ground up. We offer 30, 60, or 90+ days of training, with a starting rate of $2,000 for the first month for new clients.
