"It was a pleasure purchasing "Sparkle", a Kentucky Mt. Horse from Shauna Stevens this last January. We met Shauna on a very cold January morning at an indoor arena. Shauna had advertised Sparkle as a green broke horse with a willing disposition. Shauna was very calm and confident with Sparkle as she worked with her and explained her ability's. She was very honest and direct with her answers, and her natural horsemanship knowledge was immediately apparent. I could tell instantly that Shauna was not at all interested in just selling a horse, she was interested in matching her horse with the right owner. Shauna worked with my 12 year old son, who had lost his trusted horse suddenly this Fall, in a very calm, patient and considerate manner, ensuring that both horse and rider were safely prepared and ready for the "test ride".

Sparkle was more than advertised. She is a very calm, willing, confident little horse that is correct physically and to me more importantly mentally. I attribute this to her breeding and more so to her care, training and handling.

As a family, we are very much looking forward to continuing our business with Shauna and the Stevens Ranch. I have been "in the horse world" for over 30 years, and can say without hesitation, dealing with Shauna has renewed my faith in horse folk!" - Wally H.

"That was one of the best lessons I think I ever had on a horse. I am not sore at all. When can I schedule the next one?" - Janet

"Shauna is an expert horse trainer... her methods are quick and stays permanent in the horses mind ... She trained my horse 4 years ago and I haven't worked much with my horse since that time ... but I go out to play with her and I can get her to trot and lope in a circle and get her to stop by using the old commands she learned when Shauna trained her. I would recommend anyone to go to Shauna for horse training ... Shauna is kind and fun to work with ... Not only will she teach the horse, but she will teach you too!" - Sally S.

"Stevens Ranch is an awesome place to board your horse! Shauna Stevens is an excellent trainer and rider. If you are a Full boarder she takes excellent care of your Horse. she is an amazing horsewoman, with great wisdom and experience and a delight to work with. She is very knowledgable about the natural horsemanship techniques. She has helped me with my thoroughbred and I am so grateful!" - Nancy S.

"Hi Shauna. I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for all the awesome things you have taught me. Three weeks ago a friend of mine purchased a beautiful 13 year-old ivory colored quarter horse with the promise that he was 'dead broke'. She very quickly realized that he had many serious issues. The horse had absolutely no ground manners or respect of people. He would step on you, drag you around, and run away with you under saddle. She sold him to me and told me 'good luck'. Using the methods that you have taught me, over the last two weeks he is now a completely different horse. He now lunges and does lateral flexion. He respects me on the ground and in the saddle. I can comfortably put him through his paces and take him out on rides and enjoy them. If you hadnt been so patient and such a great teacher I would have never been capable of doing what I have with him. Thank you so much!"
