Maria Liverett “5-P” Ria’s Ranch Horsemanship
Maria is a sensitive trainer that sets her feelings aside and places the rider’s feelings front and center. Keeping you and your horse safe is paramount in her training. She understands that emotions make it more difficult to focus and learn. Helping the rider with fearful emotions, and keeping the rider on task, opens the door to a higher level of learning for you and your buddy. No matter the task she will help you tackle it.
Maria’s love for horses placed her in the saddle barrel racing and horsing around at the ripe old age of 7. After being hurt as an adult rider, Maria became addicted to learning – always seeking a new or improved way, or the latest tool for her toolbox. She has trained with several Industry Experts, and horse trainers; including but not limited to: John Lyons, Dennis Reis (endorsed through most levels), Richard Winters, Jon Ensign, Lester Buckley, Dr. Robert Miller, and most recently Brandi Lyons. Maria went through Brandi’s Trainer’s Certification Program in 2016. She brought two horses to the program, one that had hurt her “Lil Native” and had caused a tremendous amount of fear. And an unbroke baby “Agent K” with excellent bloodlines. She broke out the baby as an all around, and ended up riding and training both like a true professional.
If you have a specific training issue in mind or are seeking real communication with your horse – contact Maria – she will not only get it done, she will show you how to do it as well.
