Leland Davis' TRAINING PHILOSOPHY is based on:

Son Kelly (and Shilo) on a colt he started with about 25 rides
  • Your horse is totally honest
  • The rider needs to understand horse psychology
  • Horse trust and respect is earned
  • Horses want to do the "right" thing
  • Anyone can learn to communicate with their horse
Safety first is one of my main goals. There is no way I'd allow my family to ride, if I wasn't sure of them, and sure of our horses.

Bronc riding isn't safe. Ask any rodeo
cowboy what he hasn't broken. It's usually a pretty short list.

Daughter Emily Riding Gus at a Clinic
One of the best things I accomplish in my clinics is to decrease risk and suffering. I decrease the risk to humans and I decrease the suffering of horses.
