"After having such a wonderful experience with the 2 year old Stud we purchased from Brett and Lisha that Brett trained there was NO ONE else in the world that we wanted to touch any of our horses but Brett. We CERTAINLY made the right choice without a doubt!
We had our up and coming 3 year old stud "Legs" as well as a new up and coming 3 year old stud we purchased, "Badger", that needed training. As young studs are they were feeling their hormones kicking in and were quite unruly and hard to handle. So it was time to send them to the trainer, "Brett Fitzpatrick".
Let me tell you... those studs came back as docile as a mare. They were full of manners and responded to anything they were asked to do! If I didn't know they were our studs I would have sworn Brett switched horses on us. At 4 months of training Brett was riding Legs without a bridle or saddle. A two year old stud... no bridle... no saddle... and he is doing everything he is asked to do instantly? INCREDIBLE!
I will give you an example of the training that Brett put into these 2 studs to illustrate what an AWESOME trainer he is. Today, June 9, 2008 my husband looked outside and saw that the 2 stallions and all the mares were in the same corral. We had a Cougar come through our place and the horses busted through all the gates in 3 different corrals to escape him. Thus they were all in one corral instead of widely separated in their own corrals.
As my husband and I headed out there the stallions were fighting. I was in a sheer panic thinking that these two stallions would fight to the death over their mares. I didn't know what we were going to do. I mean... how the heck do you separate and get a hold of two fighting stallions in amongst 6 mares?
But my Husband did EXACTLY what Brett had told him to do and exactly what Brett had trained the stallions to do. He walked out in the corral with his training stick. He calmly walked up to Badger and pointed the stick at him and told him "Back". Badger instantly responded and moved into the next corral and STAYED there just as he was trained to do by Brett! He did not even attempt to come back into the corral with Legs and the mares. My husband was able to get the mangled gate shut without Badger coming near him at all.
To make a long story short, my husband fixed the gates and separated all the horses back to where they were supposed to be. He easily was able to catch and remove the mares from Legs by telling Legs "Back" as well. Legs backed off into a corner and allowed Rick to get whomever he wanted and to remove that mare from the corral without budging an inch.
To be perfectly honest with you I'm still in a state of shock. I had pictured 2 dead or at the very least very injured stallions. I just KNEW that there was no way we would be able to separate them. But thanks to Brett this was all easily done without one solitary problem!
I don't know what he does or how he does it. I just KNOW that he knows what he is doing. I have several up and coming 2 year old fillies that need training and there will be NO other trainer but Brett who will train any horse that I own or will ever own. Brett Fitzpatrick is the BEST!!!"
