Heartland horse trainer
So I have to find out, that across where Cruiser will be boarded we have the owner and trainer of the fellow who is responsible to training and handling the horses in the show Heartland. Very convenient because he will come in handy when we get Cruiser broke to ride.

His name is Tom Erickson and I want to look up to see how he handles and trains them before I send our boy out there.

Anyone here might be familiar with his training techniques?

No, but the horses on the show seem to be pretty compliant :)
He must be a cowhorse guy.

I do know he's well known amongst the movie community because he's been the stunt director for a lot of big movies, however I cant seem to find good literature on him and training horses. His facility is beautiful but it really doesnt give me much on him and how he works with horses.

This has got me very interested :)

Ill be checking what he's about before I head there, but I can only imagine if they chose him for the show, he likely must be doing something good.

Hey could you maybe possibly ask him what it took for him to be able to be the trainer for the show? :)

From what I have been told, a lot of Parelli techniques have been involved in the show Heartland.

Doesn't quite answer question Nokotaheaven but I do remember this Q&A section.
