Stan Estes believes that you need to train a horse like another horse trains a horse.

On the beautiful land in Georgia his family has owned since 1870, Estes works with troubled — and sometimes violent horses — to train and restore them, both mentally and physically.

Who is Stan Estes?

Since he was a child, Estes has always had a special connection with horses. By taking his time with the animals and understanding them, he learned to train them using natural horsemanship methods and a gentle approach that have become his trademark.

His techniques and reputation are well known, drawing horse owners from all over the USA and as far afield as Ireland. They feel lucky to have found a “horse whisperer” who can achieve the near impossible with unruly and seemingly untrainable animals. Estes maintains that he’s the lucky one. He makes a living doing what he loves and makes a difference in these horses’ lives at the same time.

Treading through the trees that have surrounded him his entire life, Estes feels a special connection to this part of Georgia and to the land his family has farmed for more than a century. Dressed in denim, leather chaps and with a hat permanently affixed to his head, it’s no surprise he’s known as the local cowboy. But Estes is clear about one thing: Horses are to be treated with respect and leave better than when they walked in.
