Horse Whisperer Teaches Skill To OthersWhen Larry Surrett whispers to a horse, it listens.
“I can train a horse to do anything physically possible, whether to jump in a pickup as it drives away or lay down and play dead when you point at it and say bang,” says Surrett.
Not only does he train horses, but for the past 11 years he has taught their owners as well. The course at his Minnesota Horse Training Academy is an intensive education, regardless of a horseman’s background.
“I had one 74-year-old man tell me he learned more in two days than he had in a life time of working with horses,” says Surrett.
He tells of one young woman who came to class with a freshly purchased $700 horse and trained it in class. A week after the class, she sold it for $5,000.
“Some people who take the course are professional horse trainers who want to be better, and others just want to connect with their horse,” says Surrett. “I have had unbelievable success stories, including one gal who made $36,000 her first year after the course. She trained horses on the side while staying home with kids.”
There are 1, 2 and 3-week programs available ranging from $1,200 to $3,600. “We have the best program in the industry with a money back guarantee if you’re not satisfied,” says Surrett.
