Hi, I’m Larry Trocha.

Over many years working with cutting, reining and working cow horses, I’ve developed a successful training program designed to teach horses to stop, spin, rollback, change leads and work cattle.

I’ve also helped many clients fix their horse’s bad behavior problems; bucking, rearing, biting, kicking & spooking.

I’m happy to share this specialized knowledge with you through my series of Horse Training DVDs and Online Horse Training Videos.

Larry Trocha is a performance horse trainer
located in northern California.

Larry specializes in training cutting horses, reined cow horses,
reining horses and general horse training.

A note to you from Larry Trocha…

What I believe about you.

I believe you came to my website for a specific reason.

More than likely, you’re looking for a solution to improve your horse’s performance or improve your horse training skills.

Either, you want to fix a behavior problem (bucking, rearing, kicking etc) or you’re looking to take your horse to a higher level of training (reining, cutting, cow horse etc).

No matter what your reason… I’m glad you found your way to my website.

My reason for being here.

I started my horse training business in 1980.

Competing in AQHA and NCHA competition, I’ve done well in reining, cow horse and cutting (year-end championships, aged-event championships, many time finalist, etc).

I’ve ridden some really good horses that were "born naturals" and an absolute joy to train.

And I’ve also had plenty of "problem" horses that were a son-of-a-gun to get trained.

Because of that, I’ve been able to learn and develop a wide variety of training techniques.

My goal here is to share with you some of the things I’ve learned that get good results. Not just techniques that work well for me… but training techniques that will work well for YOU!

This is what troubles me.

It’s not their fault… but people have so many misconceptions about horses and horse training.

They have misconceptions about what’s right and what’s wrong… what works and what doesn’t… what’s reality and what’s simply a fantasy.

They have misconceptions that can be dangerous for the horse owner.

Misconceptions that can make a horse’s life MISERABLE.

Misconceptions that can lead to frustration and the feeling of failure.

Even a person who is honestly trying to learn, can end up with the wrong ideas.

He’ll watch popular horse training programs on television or he’ll study a trainer’s DVD series.

Unfortunately, many horse trainers (and clinicians) don’t tell people the whole truth.

For some reason, they feel it’s necessary to present a less-than-accurate version of what a successful training program actually is.

Most are so afraid of offending somebody, they carefully choose touchy-feely, politically-correct language so as not to step on anybody’s toes.

Their training demonstrations are done using horses that never make a mistake. They seldom show how to deal with "difficult" horses that make mistakes or don’t cooperate.

As a result, the viewer comes away with a DISTORTED understanding of true horse nature and horse training.

It shouldn’t be that way!

I believe people need to know the truth… they need to see training that works in the "real world" on "real horses".

What I have to offer.

I’ve produced an entire set of DVDs and online videos that I feel do a good job of showing how to train a horse.

Videos that show how to start colts or re-train older horses.

Videos for training cutting horses, reining horses, reined cow horses and more.

Each video goes into great detail.

I explain exactly what you need to do… step-by-step… in PLAIN ENGLISH.

The instructions are easy to understand, direct and to the point.

I should point out, the methods demonstrated in the videos are not the only way to train a horse but they’re a very good way.

A way that has proven to work well for me and my clients, on a wide variety of horses.

By the way, in each video, I also cover extensive training for the RIDER.

No horse will perform well if the person on his back doesn’t use their hands, legs and seat correctly.

What it’ll do for you.

Bottom line, my training videos will help you get outstanding results!

And if you have a decent horse, you’ll get those results really fast.
