Alina started western trick riding and stunt riding at the age of seven in her hometown of golden Colorado. She trained at the Red Top Ranch by Karen Vold, Linda Scholtz, and Mellissa Pfaff. She went pro at the age of fourteen, performing in rodeos across the country. At the age of 17 she ran away with the circus and changed to the more traditional form of trick riding known as Cossack. She's also been training in Liberty, Roman riding, and Ballet on Horseback. She has performed across North America in rodeos and circus and theatrical productions, including the world’s largest touring theatrical production Cavalia’s Odysseo.
From an early age Steve had an extreme passion for being around horses. This passion spread to a thirst for more knowledge as he traveled across the country to mentor under some of the greatest horsemen of all time, including the late Ray Hunt. The culmination of this tutilage and his work helping thousands of horses and riders over the last 20 years, is the basis for Steve's Excel With Horses Program. It is one of the most sought-after training methods in the country and has made it possible for so many horsemen and women to achieve their horsemanship dreams. Steve is dedicated to helping those wishing to pursue a better relationship with their horse and has designed a simple step-by-step program designed for all breeds and disciplines.
mORGAN wagner & ENDO
Internationally known duo Morgan Wagner and Endo, her 17-year old Appaloosa, demonstrate more than riding and liberty - they have mastered the art of teamwork.
You see, Endo is completely blind. Due to painful recurrent uveitis, also known as moon blindness, Endo had to have his eyes removed when he was twelve. Initially Endo had one eye removed, but it became obvious that his second eye would have to be removed as well. Knowing this, Morgan began working with him before he was completely blind. She started switching him to voice commands and blindfolding him while asking him to move forward and trust her. Morgan’s training methods worked so well that they began competing in Working Equitation competitions. Now they compete in Master's Level which is the highest level achievable. Morgan is now pursuing her dreams as a trainer and instructor, inspiring horse owners to strive to deepen the relationship with their horses, and has started a non-profit to rescue and rehab horses. By fulfilling this passion, the horses she saves “will learn skills that ensure they will always be wanted in someone’s barn, no matter where they end up.”
Don’t miss Morgan and Endo at the WA State Horse Expo. The duo will be presenting demonstrations daily, and welcome visitors to the barn. They will also be performing in the Friday night Youth Showcase and popular Saturday Night Extravaganza. Watching these two perform, you would never know Endo is blind. They are truly amazing.
