We moved to Oklahoma when I was a junior in high school, and I had assumed that we would find another horse trainer and continue on as we always had on prior moves. Luckily, my mother found a horse training facility right down the road from where we lived and this trainer had previously worked with Appaloosa Horses.
Honestly, I think that Wes accepted us into his barn with a little reluctance, as he had changed his focus to Quarter Horses. I am so thankful and glad that he did. Wes took me under his wing to teach me how to be a better, more confident rider.
My daughter, April, has been part of the WW team for several years. These years have truly been a blessing to me. Not only have I had the opportunity to spend quality time with my daughter, but I’ve gained another family and met new friends along the way. I’ve watched Wes create a bond between an awkward young girl and green horse that takes my breath away when I think of where they began. I DO believe that you CAN make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. Read April’s story and you will, too.
I feel so fortunate to be part of “Team Wetherell.” I brought Wes a semi-broke mare with the hope to show successfully at our local AQHA circuit. It seemed doable, but my lack of confidence combined with the mare’s lack of training made getting around the show pen tough on our own. As a Do-It-Yourselfer, I wasn’t too keen on the whole training barn concept, but Wes’ sterling reputation had me intrigued. I dropped “Patty” off for training and hoped for the best.
People say, “Everything happens for a reason”, and I believe you will think the same thing after you read my story. View Post to read more.
I have been training with Wes Wetherell Quarter Horses for 11 years. With the help of Wes, I have excelled to ride with trust and confidence. I can say it hasn't always been easy and there days in the past when I was ready to just give up. View Post to read more.
