      Fantastic Deal

      I was thrilled to be able to purchase a Repeat Retreat deal at 80 % off. I have been to seven retreats and will continue to participate in these clinics. I always learn a new horse training tip and am reminded of tips that I forgot. Michael certainly keeps me well educated and Major Tom has improved under his guidance and tutelage. I would encourage all interested horse people to come and find out how to be successful with your horse.

      Marti we truly enjoy having you at the retreats! Thank you so much for the kind words! It has been wonderful watching you and your horse grow through the different retreats you have been to! Happy Riding!

      Trainoff Retreat

      Every retreat I come to gets better and better. The Trainoff retreat was so much fun - and as always I learned so much. The best part of every retreat is that family feel and seeing old friends Ive made along the way and the new friends I just met.
      Every retreat gives me new insight on what to work on. I can't wait for my next retreat!

      We truly enjoy having you Barb! Delighted to hear that each retreat is surpassing the last! The family atmosphere is truly special! Looking forward to your continued growth and the joy of your next retreat! Hope to see you soon!

      I highly recommend the Retreats at Horse Haven. I have never learned so much while having fun. It will transform your relationship with your horse! I can’t wait to return!

      This is so wonderful to hear because this is what we are about! Learning while enjoying what you are doing is so important! Thank you and we hope to see you at another retreat soon!

      Advanced Retreat

      I’ve been riding and training horses for over 30 years. I was very impressed with Michael’s knowledge and way of getting his horses to respect him in a calm way. It was also nice to see his father join in and give his vast experience and knowledge available for us to ask. It was a great learning experience that I feel would benefit anyone who is interested to build an amazing partnership with their horse. Thank you Gascon family.

      Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts on your experience with Michael and his father. We're delighted to hear that you were impressed with Michael's knowledge and his calm approach to gaining the respect of his horses. It's always rewarding to know that our efforts in creating a positive and educational environment for horse enthusiasts are appreciated.
