What I believe about you.

Hi… Larry Trocha here.

I believe you came to this 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 tough, "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.

This is what troubles me.

It’s not their fault… but people have so many misconceptions about horses and horse training, it isn’t funny.

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 respond perfectly. 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.

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 (plus training courses you view online) 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 DVD 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.

For the demonstrations, I did NOT use the best horses in the barn. I used horses that make MISTAKES.

I did that so you can see how to CORRECT the mistakes.

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, on a wide variety of horses.

By the way, in each DVD, 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 great results!

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

Would you like to see an example?

Watch the video clip about stopping and backing a horse.

It’s a good example of the kind of instruction you’ll get in all my DVDs.

What I want you to do.

The FIRST thing is to subscribe to my Horse Training Tips Insider (did I mention it’s free).


Because you’ll receive top-notch training information within a few minutes of signing up.

Information that is so good, you’ll wonder why I’m not charging for it. (I’m not exaggerating, just look at all the comments at the bottom of the Home Page)

If you’re unsure if it’s the right thing for you to do, then answer this simple question…

Do you want to improve your horsemanship and training skills or not?

If your answer is "NOT"… that’s fine. But you may as well leave now because that’s what this entire website is about.

If your answer is "YES"… then good. Join me and let’s get started.

The SECOND thing you should do is take a look at my Horse Training DVDs and pick out the ones that best suit your needs.

I recommend you order one of the DVD "PACKAGES" as they offer the best value at a discounted price.

Good luck with training your horse.

Success Story!

I have to admit your videos have helped me tremendously. Before I purchased them I used to ask the “top hands” in my area how they put such a good handle on their colts. They usually couldn’t tell me because they really didn’t know how to explain their secrets. Now, after studying the Larry Trocha videos, some of the top hands are asking “me” how I’m doing it and giving me compliments about how well my horses are handling. Thanks Larry!

    Hi, my sister has a 6 year old quarter horse gelding. He is very large compared to my 25 year old gelding I have ridden for years. I am starting to ride my sisters horse, but I am having some problems.
    1- He likes to throw his head like crazy when I ride him. How do I fix this?
    2- I use a curb bit on him, but my grandfather says its too harsh and I should use a d ring snaffle( he’s ridden and trained horses) what do you recommend ( I have a one eared bridle with an open nose)
    3- he freaks out when away from my other horse. How do I nip this in the butt?

    I Need help! Thank you

    Larry, first off your videos have truly helped me become an overall better rider and I wanted to thank you for your wonderful training information. I took over a 10 year old barrel horse that was riden hard and put away wet most of her life so i was told she could never get close to an arena let alone be comfortable to ride in one. She now rides with a loose rein both in and out of an arena and has been in the winners circle in performance many times so we’ve made some huge strides together. I have a question about one situation that troubles me. When trail riding her she is extremely barn and buddy sour it’s crazy rediculous. I’ve used every training method you’ve shown in your videos and I’ve been working with her for over a year with tons of progress except trails. Suggestions? I’m so desperate since I have sand dunes, a lake and miles of summer weather yet she’s so anxious I dred trail riding. Please any help would be much appreciated. Again thank you for your wisdom

    Dear Larry
    Thank you for all your newsletters, straight forwardness, videos and patience.
    They are truly practical and worth its salt.
    I am inspired, learning a lot and enjoying all of it.

    Hi Larry,

    Thank you so much for the mails/videos. Your tips and instructions are very good and for the first time i really understand the way it works and how i can improve. Already i think “reign release, reign release”in my sleep.
    My ten year old mare is a very experienced and fine horse. I’m not very experienced but i notice a real difference since using your training instructions. she is really changed now, awake and eager to perform. actually sometimes she already started the turn or rollback. This is a bit difficult because i’m not sure if i did something “wrong”. I only” thought” about a turn. I really think and believe that she is happy now and wants to work together but perhaps you can help me how to change this part.
    Kind regards Joke Kaptein (The Netherlands)

    Hi Larry,
    I have a question regarding breeding for reining horses. I own a Skipper W QH, have you heard of this bloodline down there in the show pen? Since you are well seasoned in the showing I just wondered if this particular bloodline was successful in western performance. My horses came from Georgia out a stallion named Starpion. I’ve been through all but one of your reining training videos. I really want to compete in reining but I’ve been told by horse trainers where I live that Skipper W isn’t a reining bloodline. I know they are known for their successes in halter, but was hoping you might have more insight on showing down your way. I’ve seen your videos and you ride horses in all different shapes and sizes. I hope to pursue the training with my horse but need to be realistic about my expectation on him. I spoke with your office and they said I could send a video of me riding and you would give your opinion. I think that way would be best so you could see my horse and tell me what you think. Looking forward to more training tips! I love your website and emails! Your help has improved my riding immensely! Thanks again Larry!

    Hi Larry, I’m starting a 3 yr old cutter and so am reviewing your Colt Starting Magic videos step-by-step. Once again I was struck by how long you spent leading that first colt. He started off so bad, so disrespectful!! But you didn’t quit. You didn’t say, “I’ll work on this problem under saddle”. And when the colt figured it out, he went from awful to a willing partner almost immediately. I think because you spent the time to fix problems at the very first level of leading, you didn’t have them crop up again later. Plus you taught the colt to respect you, stay out of your space, listen and repond immediately to your consistent cues, and what bump/release means. So every other step, all the way to his first ride, went rather quickly and very smoothly because you were building on what the colt had already learned.
    I was going to skip the leading training before I reviewed your Colt Starting Magic Video again. I had figured this filly didn’t know much, but she did know how to lead. I am very happy to say I didn’t skip it and we did fix a few problems right away. (She would just stop leading and stand there whenever she wanted.) And then the rest of it–lounging, saddling, pulling her around, stepping up on her, and her first ride–when so smoothly. No drama, no buck, no sull. This mare really does want to work with me and she clearly understands what I am asking of her because I followed your video step-by-step. And I didn’t skip any steps or move on until she was consistently performing at the current level. Thank you so much for your videos Larry. I’m going to make this mare into a good rider because of your help. You’re the best thing out there and I recommend your Colt Starting videos to everyone-even the experienced–who are thinking about starting their own colt. Or who want to know what a colt-starting trainer should be doing before they send their colt to just anyone.

    We have managed to track down your website while searching horse training material and really liked what we saw. the Newsletters, Videos and Tips have prompted me to buy your mega package. I have started using your training methods and already have had some good results.
    Thank you for sharing your experience and your willingness to train us riders to be better horsemen.
    Your videos and newsletters have inspired me tremendously and have given me the courage and enthusiasm and plan to proceed.

    I have always had an interest and a passion for horses but could not find one person willing and capable to share his/her knowledge. What a frustrating, disheartening venture it mostly was.
    Obviously I grew older, had children and now I would like to teach my children how to ride.
    We want to give our children calm and reliable horses, and the right tools of how to ride.
    With your videos and my renewed enthusiasm I feel that I can give the horse and my children a fair chance.
    What a blessing, may the Lord bless your work.

    Kind regards

      Hi Noela,

      I’m really glad the training techniques are working well for you.

    Thanks Larry for keeping my butt from hitting the dirt the other day ago when i decided to lope my colt for the first time. He went into a full hard rodeo buck with me, and needless to say i would probably be seriously hurt if i hadn’t used the technique that i learned in your colt starting video. Thanks for saving me a trip to the hospital.

    Hey Larry,
    I was just thinking I would let you know that I absolutely love your training tips. I was always have trouble getting my horse to spin, but after an hour or so doing what you told me. I’ve gotten a lot of progress. I have been trying for almost a year and a half to get him to spin, nothing! So, thank you very much for your help! It’s greatly appreciated and will be put to good use as soon as possible! I’m hoping to get into junior regining competions. So this helped a ton!(:
