Sunset Ranch offers horse training in multiple disciplines. We start colts and put tune ups on older horses who have had time off. Gary and Megan Bennett specialize in making Mounted Shooting Horses, training trick horses, fixing problem horses and starting horses over fences. We produce confident, solid and safe trail horses for all levels of riders. Gary and Megan use Natural Horsemanship meaning we train with the psychology of the horse in mind and the intent to help the horse to understand, not merely submit. We like to think of ourselves as developers rather than trainers. We strive to help each horse and rider team to reach its full potential. We value the spirit of the horse and preserve each individuals character at all cost. Our training fundamentals are based in the teachings of many great horsemen including: Ray Hunt, Tom Dorrance, Monte Foreman, Buck Branaman, Janiece Wilson, Clinton Anderson, and Pat Parelli. Gary and Megan are both students of the horse and are continuously tweaking their methods. We view each horse as an individual deserving a customized and flexible training plan designed with your specific goals in mind. Enjoy our website, and stop by to see us in person when you’re in our area! Check us out on Facebook, we love to make new friends!

This is Ethan a 3 year old Morgan gelding. Ethan came in for a colt start. We took this video on day 26. He is a very good boy don’t you think?
This is Max. Max was a green broke 7 year old who had been sitting for two years and came in for training. When we went to pick him up he would rear and strike out with his front feet when you tried to load him in a trailer. This video was taken at the 60day point.
