I think wealth & success is what most trainers seek, putting more on horses than they should for the sake of it. Chuck does not, he puts his horses first as you said, & his determination to keep them pure, thoughtful horses, is both proof of that & a true inspiration. God bless YOU Chuck […]

I highly recommend Charles and Friendship Training (“FT”) for anyone who has a horse! Not only does he literally hold your hand through the process, this is only ‘method’ I have found that truly delivers more than promised.

I had been searching for this for most of my life, & over 3 years world wide, and he is the […]

Occasionally, fate steps in at a most opportune time and that is how I met C. H. (CB) Mintzlaff. He was, for all intents and purposes, looking for someone else, but had been given our phone number on the off chance I might know how to contact them. I will say that had I not […]

Art is 69 years old, well versed in traditional training methods and, after reading an article about Foundation Training in Natural Horse magazine, (and being a typical New Englander) traveled halfway across the country to see if “FT walked the walk or just Talked the talk.” The following is the email he sent home while […]
