TS Performance Horses

Offering quality coaching and training, specializing in reining and colt starting.


Travis' understanding of horses and ability to think like them, has earned him a reputation as a horseman who provides solid general training.  He has become a go to trainer for problem horses and difficult colts.  Using his program that consists of important basics (groundwork and under saddle) he has helped improve many different horses, such as reining, dressage and trail horses.   


Colt Starting

Travis focuses on giving your horse a solid foundation that places them on track to success.  Whether success is measured as going for an enjoyable trail ride, competing in reining, being trained for resale or any other path.  While effective and efficient training is the goal, the horse's wellbeing and long-term success are most important.

Travis enjoys working with horses destined for the reining show pen.  This includes starting your two year old future champion, preparing futurity horses, as well as, maintaining open and non pro show horses.
