Rich I want to thank you for helping me to understand and see what it is that horses need from us humans. You have shown me that horses desire to be one with us. You also have shown me that it takes desire, knowledge, understanding, attitude, respect, trust, and most important time.
So I dedicate this letter to you as a big thanks. This all has played/changed how I choose to live my life.

I have forever dreamed of being a horse whisper with my own horse. Rich Scott is helping to make this dream come true. Over the past year I have driven two hours each way to be able to take lessons and instructions from Rich. It is the very best investment I have made for my horse and myself. Rich not only has the gift of being able to understand the feel of the horse; He is able to teach this gift to others so they can become one with their horse.
Rich is real and true horse whisperer of feel, understanding and respecting; he lives and teach that respect understanding and feel so each of us can become a partner with our equine friends. I salute you Rich! you are the best!
Thank you so much for all you have given!

If you truly want horsemanship through feel, Rich Scott can help you get there. I've been riding with Rich for the better part of seven years and I would never go back to my old ways. When I first started, everything was the horses fault, including my heavy hands! Now, though feel I've learned how to prepare and ask a horse for what I need.
You can read all the books, watch all the videos, and go to clinics, but you have to have supervision along the way or you'll end up in an exercise of frustration for both you and the horse. Rich understands how to get feel, give feel, and teach this knowledge to others.
Thanks Rich! Its Been A Great Ride.

I have worked with Rich Scott for the last three to four years. I had some medical issues including several surgeries and was unable to work with any of my horses for a couple years. We had a 3 year old stud colt my kids named Buckaroo. His name was fitting. He reared up if you came near him and just seemed to have a mean streak. We needed to get him halter broke so we could have him gelded. I called Rich and he was willing to help. After a couple trials we finally got him loaded in a trailer and off to Rich's place we went. Rich transformed him into a functional horse within the first 30 days.
Our most memorable story however was Kona, a six month old stud colt who had a mule foot and needed surgery. Rich took him for a week and then worked with us at our home three to four times. Rich knew my wife was inexperienced with horses and took the time to make sure she got the basics in horse safety and training 101. Over and over during the training sessions Rich would say "Let the horse make the choice, all you have to do is apply a little pressure." This is an especially good method for a beginner because it allows both the horse and the owner to learn together. When it came time for Kona to go to CSU for his surgery, he was quite easy going and very well mannered. The Barn Master made a special point of coming up to me and telling me how impressed she was with Kona. She said Kona had better manners than most the 4 to 5 year olds she saw. During his visit to CSU, they were so comfortable with him that they let a Freshman put in his IV.
Hiring Rich to work with your horse is like getting a buy one, get one free. He emphasizes safety first, encourages the owner to come ad be involved in the process, and explains what he is doing and why to make sure you and the animal are on the same page. He is an all around good guy and his approach to horse training certainly works!
