I had my horse trained by Tommie Turvey. My horse needed manners and I was not able to do it with him as I had several major surgeries to my structure just so I could stand up and walk. I was afraid of my horse and decided to sell him. My husband convinced me to not sell the horse but to have him trained to do liberty and ground exercises. I sent the horse to Tommie and Chantal and when I got him back , it was like having a new horse. He was taught to respect my space, to do liberty and to trail ride safely over obstacles. My horse also learned a few tricks that made my time spent with him fun even if I did not get on his back. Tommie and Chantal gave me a lot of encouragement to get on my horse and I did for the first time in several years. I rode my horse safely and with confidence. I have since been trail riding my horse at Cook Forest, the State parks in NJ and now in Florida. My horse will work in the arena at liberty when I am not feeling up to riding. I have had a bilateral knee replacement, hip replacement and spinal fusion. I was ready to give up horses when I had all of this work done. I trust my horse and he trusts me. I know riding any horse is dangerous. My Dr advised me to live my life and enjoy what I do with the horses. I do. I enjoy what Tommie and Chantal did with my horse to make him a valuable member of the family again. In the horse training world, there are a lot of gimmicks to sell the services of clinicians. Tommie does not need gimmicks. His reputation is a positive one amongst many followers in this horse world. He fills seats at all expos and performances. He is a unique man with a lot of talent. Everyone has a bad day and maybe those here who diss him caught him on a bad day. No one is perfect. All trainers have bad days, most of them are not seen by the hundreds of followers. What Tommie and Chantal did for me is priceless. Thank you for giving me back my courage to enjoy my horse both from the saddle and on the ground.
