New Website! Gilmore Horsemanship - www.gilmorehorsemanship.com

Let me introduce myself. My name is Dan Gilmore and I am a horse trainer. My home location is in Western North Carolina. I offer specialized training and retraining for horses that are marginal, have been ruined through neglect or abuse or are just plain cantankerous. I also start, train and retrain horses of all ages.

If you have a horse that has behavioral problems or a horse that you are starting, I can help. I use non-forceful methods that insure the comfort, safety and well being of the horse (and ultimately the rider.)

I spend a lot of time working with field hunters, 'hunters' and 'jumpers.' I also do a lot of work saving horses that would have been given up on otherwise. In addition to that, there's also horse sales and cavalry re-enacting to boot.
