The proper foundation is the most important part of a horse's life. The first saddling and first ride can make or break the horse's thought process in the way he views the human. Does he trust you? Or, is he cautious and fearful? At Gary Cooper Performance Horses we take the utmost care, time and consideration so that each individual horse gets the start he deserves, then you the owner can earn his trust. With trust that horse's potential has no limits. There are no boundaries to where that horse will take you as a partner, and partnership is what horsemanship is all about. Remember, "There is no substitute for time, patience, and consistency!" ~ Benny Guitron
During your horse's stay at Gary Cooper Performance Horses each horse has his own individual 40x80 foot pen with a large windbreak, heated waterers, free choice white salt and feeding 3 times daily. We provide indoor pens during extreme weather conditions, and weatherproof blankets if needed. We have a mobile veterinary service who visits our facility at least 2 times monthly. And a local equine surgery center only 20 minutes away. We treat every horse here like part of the family, so we hope you choose us to board and train your equine loved ones.

All horses allowed upon the premises must be confirmed to be 

- and remain - up to date on all vaccinations. Out-of-state horses must have a 6 month negative Coggins Test result to be admitted. Please have all proper paperwork for confirmation on-hand.
