Ruben’s approach to training is simple…Love It!
Cutting is about passion and a “get after it” attitude. As a rider you really have to love the sport. That love and passion radiates through the connection between you and your horse. So, Ruben’s first main objective is to ensure the best match between horse and rider, taking into consideration skill level of rider, training level of horse and the “personalities” of both.
“I had the opportunity to take classes with Ruben during the last 18 months. When I started I had accumulated tons of bad habits taught by “specialists” in my country (Switzerland). Ruben’s personal training turned me from a loser to a winner. His “eagle eye” finds out immediately where correction is needed and his sense of humor together with clear friendly advice makes the trainings and the classes a real fun moment. I could feel and see improvement after every session. I applied all the learned skills at home to my cutting horse who did not want to cut anymore. After a few months we both regained the fun for cutting and we finished in the top five twice in a row. All the guys out there who were having a lot of fun when I showed up at the shows in my country, all of sudden became quiet and asked: “what happened to you and your horse?”. That feels so good. Thank you Ruben, I’ll never forget the time we spent together in the practice pen and at the shows.” – Benedict Broennimann
