Welcome to Three Rivers Horse Training, LLC, located 30 minutes west of Bozeman in the Madison Valley at the Grey Cliffs Ranch in Three Forks, Montana
"My true love and passion has always been horses, and I began riding before my feet hung past the skirt of the saddle. I was born in Arizona and raised in Illinois, where I started riding at a competitive show barn. Since, I have worked throughout the West on ranches, as a backcountry guide, packing mules and starting and re-educating horses for both outfitting and rescue operations. Through this variety of experience I have been lucky to work with many different people, horses and mules, and each one has taught me so much. I'm so excited to have this opportunity to work out of such a wonderful facility and to continue to learn and grow from those around me, both equine and human, and hopefully return the favor!"
—Alex Mufson, Three Rivers Horse Training, LLC, Owner & Trainer
Alex focuses on foundation work, and aims for solid, well-minded horses that can be taken in any direction, from ranch work to trail riding to the show ring. Achieving this willingness in a horse comes from allowing them the space to make decisions, and in building the horse's confidence in both themselves and their rider.
In creating this partnership, Alex emphasizes directing a horse's thought, rather than only their body. A horse that is focused and engaged will organize their body to get the job done, whatever that job may be. If the horse embraces this responsibility, the result will be softer, squarer and more productive than anything a rider could have forced.
With this philosophy, Alex welcomes all breeds and disciplines
