Welcome to our web site, and thank you for taking the time to learn
more about me, my education and my training programs.
Michelle Gilles was born in California but moved to continue
her education and established herself as a premier Trainer in
Texas and Wyoming, she relocated back to California 5 years
ago to offer her services and show with her idols. Using a
combo of methods from traditional vaquero, natural
horsemanship, classical foundation Horsemanship that she
has worked perfecting over the course of 20 years, she will
help you reach your goals whether it be in the show pen or on
the trail.

Michelle has a unique ability to figure out the way to
communicate with horse and rider to help each individual pair
reach new milestones in their horsemanship goals. She has
became proficient in building a true bridle horse.

Safety of horse and rider is her main focus so she can
provide the best for each individual team!

Michelle is currently booking her often imitated but never
duplicate Ride Like A Girl Clinics. Helping get ladies who had
accidents, life changes or long periods out of the saddle get
their confidence built back up.  

With over 25 years of experience, 15 years training
performance horses you can bet your horse will be treated
like the champion it is destined to be!
