Training

Mike Harness got his start as a young boy working for the Boy Scouts of America. It is there that his passion for horses started to grow. Following this Mike went to work for several ranches across the United States. He has worked in Arizona, Montana, Colorado, Oregon, Wyoming and Minnesota. Mike has been starting horses and working with people for many years. He works to increase his knowledge and understanding of the horse daily. His desire is to build a solid relationship with the horse that allows the two to do “all things”. Mike does a small handful of Clinics each year, but enjoys most the progress seen through the horses personal advancements, willing understanding, and acceptance. He now resides here at Whispering Meadows with his wife and two boys. Mike shows and competes in multiple venues. When asked what his greatest accomplishment has been he answered “ My wonderful wife and two little cowboys that the Lord has blessed me with.”
