About Sam Harvey

My goal is to help you find a rewarding partnership with your horse. By offering an alternative approach in how you mentally, physically and emotionally work with your horse through a raised awareness, the ability to assess, a refined sensitivity, and improved timing will give you the tools and aids to clearly communicate with your horse. A quality partnership whose foundation is built on respect and trust. My background varies with over 20 years involvement in many aspects of the equine industry both competitive and non. I offer clinics nationally, lessons, individualized training programs for horses and riders, assessments and much more. Please visit my website for more on the services I offer.

During my initial training I spent years on the road competing throughout the USA in Three Day Eventing, Jumpers & Dressage with a Pony Club background (member, instructor, Joint DC and Youth Congress Alumni.) During my classical training I also apprenticed with a focus on young horse racetrack prep.

After working under several Olympic veterans in Europe, my equine interests expanded into a diverse range of disciplines including cutting, reined cow horse, endurance, competitive trail horse and of course, what is now considered natural horsemanship.

These days I is no longer focus on competing, and with my limited free time I pursue expanding experiences among quality horse folks while participating on traditional working cattle ranches across the west, some of which have been in existence since the turn of the 20th century. 

In Sandpoint, ID (during the summer months) I decided to focus on creating a center that encouraged riders of all disciplines and experience levels to have access to an affordable facility- and The Equestrian Center, LLC, was opened in the fall of 2003. 

During the winter months I'm based out of Yuma, AZ offer most horse related services.  I also enjoy traveling nationwide with my consulting business, Alternative Equestrian Assessments.

I enjoy the various challenges of riding and working with both horses and people.  I work with students of varying experience levels and  goals for both pleasure and competitive riders.  I offer my knowledge and experience to those who are enthusiastic learners. 

Feel free to send me an email to set up an appointment to see how I can best help you and your horse!
