When I was in my early 20’s living in Arizona, riding horses at night under the desert stars I never imagined I would become a Professional Horse Trainer with a successful trail riding business.

Brian Thomas portraitI have had many highlights in my years as a professional horseman. Working, training and riding with some of the world’s best horse trainers such as Josh & John Lyons is a privilege and honor I will always be thankful for. Having the opportunity to work with celebrity Harrison Ford and his horses would give me a sense of accomplishment as a Professional Horse Trainer.

I have guided trips professionally in Alaska, Mexico, Wyoming (including Yellowstone National Park), Montana, Idaho and Oregon over the last 16 years.

In addition, I have conducted clinics, performed demonstrations, participated in trainers challenges, and have worked privately with clients across the United States and Canada.

I truly have been blessed to do what I do for a living.Training horses, working with clients and teaching them how to maintain that training is a job I look forward to each day.

Being able to offer trail riding packages with some of the most spectacular views in Central Oregon, such as Smith Rock State Park and Ranch at the Canyons is another amazing opportunity I never take for granted.
