Doc Hammill Horsemanship helps people to understand and build relationships with their horses. We believe that YOU are your horse’s best teacher; we teach you to gently, safely, and effectively harness, hitch, drive, work and train horses through:

  • Comprehensive Horsemanship DVD series
  •  Workshops at our ranch in Montana and  around the country
  • Personalized Video and Telephone coaching
  • A new book, “Harness Lessons with Doc Hammill and Friends”
  • Private mentorship  on YOUR farm or ranch
  • Publications & Articles
  • Seminars and speaking engagements

“What I have come to call Gentle Horsemanship is actually a set of principles, an ethical code, for interacting with horses. It is based upon commitment to using only non-confrontational and nonviolent techniques, and upon accepting personal responsibility for the comfort and behavior of our horses. Gentle Horsemanship professes that horses effectively mirror our actions, reactions, and behavior and that to change their behavior we must first reshape ours.”
