"Tash came to the Turn Around Ranch, here in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta, Canada as a horse trainer. She started six of my young horses – right from initial groundwork to being ridden comfortably out on the trails. I completely trusted her with my very precious ones, and they got the best start any horse could ever want. She is an exceptional person and horse trainer. Any horse is well blessed to have her working with them! She is delightfully self motivated and responsible.
This woman has an exceptional feel for horses, an awesome ability to sense what their issues are about, to analyse accurately and to problem solve effectively. She is in every way respectful and sensitive to the horses she works with. My horses adored her and were eager and excited to work with her each day!
I do “Equine Assisted Counselling” and it is essential to my work that I have horses that are tuned into feelings/energy and not “tuned out.” They need to be able to connect to the kids I work with to be effective counseling partners in the work I do. I need to have a trainer who is able to sense, feel and respect what is going on for the horse in order for them to develop well. Tash was so very able to work in this way. She is firm, but respectful to the horse.
I and my horses are forever grateful for the time Tash spent with us. She is one of my favorite human beings and one of the very best horse trainers I know. If you have a deep love for your horse and you want your horse to be trained as a willing partner, I would recommend Tash with the highest praise!!!"

"I met Tash when she was working with horses in Alberta. Her skill with horses is amazing as well as her ability to communicate with them. We were at a horsemanship day and we were taking one horse through an obstacle course. Well she took three at once, at liberty! She gains horses trust and can communicate with the flick of the wrist and they will respond. She is absolutely amazing."

" 2dski horsemanship have been an amazing help to me and my own horse crystal. It takes a lot of passion and patience to be a good horseman and work at understanding their language. Tash has helped me to listen to what my horse has to say and to use feel and body language when communicating with my own or any horse! But most importantly to be clear in what I am asking! Tash has such a natural and gentle way with horses and I'm grateful for everything she's helped me with and is always there for support if you need any tips or guidance on a day to day basis!!"

Tash has work wonders with myself and my challenging and at times, dangerous youngster. I was at my wits end and now we are really turning the corner. Tash has been sensitive to the type of training my youngster has needed at each stage and has really helped bring on both of our confidence. Couldn't recommend enough!

Saved me and my pony!! I have become a better person through my experience with tash in so many ways. I am able to give so much more to my pony and share what I have learnt with my friends. These are life lessons I will forever take with me :) thank you from me and Beau x

Tasha's understanding of horses, on all levels emotionally mentally physically is an absolute gift that she has. Myself and G my beautiful cob are so very lucky to have her in our lives she really is fantastic and I really do not know what I would of done without her as when G came to me from a very abusive home, I couldn't touch her as her fear of people was so strong however with Tasha's empathy and understanding of G we can touch and groom her, it's a journey ahead with great thanks to Tasha G has quality to her life now and we both always look forward to seeing her each week

Was with Tash at university and her ability with horses is one to be admired. Seeing her bond with her own horse was amazing as well as her ability to train other horses. Highly recommended!

Tash came to help us over a year ago when my pony had been traumatised and was super nervous of everybody and everything. He was completely unapproachable so Tash worked with him loose in the ring until trust was developed (which didn't take long). Within a couple of months this had progressed to her riding him bareback and addressing the issues he had such as with his saddle, so he is now a lovely rideable pony. She has also helped myself enormously with the advice she has given in terms of teaching me how to handle him, ride him and also on practical horse care. I would highly recommend her.
