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

Our training program is Mangold Ranch's signature service. Every horse that begins training is worked from the Ground UP, focusing on a good foundation of skills. Our trainers start horse, desensitize , tune-up, provide deluxe trail horse training, and finish horses off with a different variety of skills depending on client needs. Mangold Ranch trainers keep horse owners educated every step of the way. Included in the training program is a one hour lesson each week with the horse and owner. Trainers focus on balancing the relationship between the horse and owner through the training process. 


Mangold Ranch Versatility is known for rehabbing horses with behavioral problems. Please don't hesitate to call if you own a dangerous or unruly horse. Mangold Ranch specializes in helping riders find a confidence again from the Ground UP.  Our focus is to teach a quality set of skills to the horses and riders, ensuring they achieve a safe and healthy relationship. Become your horse's benevolent leader and gain a set of skills that you can be proud of. Once you become part of the ranch team, you will realize there is no where else quite like it. Our facility is filled with wonderful people who help each other to practice good quality horsemanship. We have had great success and would love to share it with you!

Mark Mangold is a natural horsemanship master trainer that has taught his children how to understand horsemanship from the ground UP. Thanks to him, we are able to spread these great techniques!
