(Meet the Trainers)


                                                                   Angela Pecora 

 Let me tell you a little about my back ground with horses. I had a couple ponies as a kid and at the age of 11yr i started caring for and riding on my own taking care of 5 plus horses. I pretty much ttaught my self to ride. At the age of 16yr i bought my first horse that i was gonna train to barrel race. II barrel raced and trained horses for 10 years. In 2010 i learned about Competitive Trail riding and tried it out and was hooked. I then started competing and training for obstacles. I started following the Clinton Anderson method in 2006. The end of 2010 i broke my first horse totally from scratch my self (Zan jo Lena) We still own JOlena and my Son now competes on her.. I have since then trained llots of horses and continue to use the Natural Horsemanship way of training with a few things i do different that work well for me. My focus is riding on a loose rein and trusting your horse and letting your horse learn to do the right thing. I started in Cowboy Mounted shooting in April 2018 and i now focus my training to compete in mounted shooting and i dont compete much in obstacles right now but i still train all my horses for obstacles and lots of despooking to build trust with my horses. I start my Cowboy mounted shooting horses from the ground up in small steps to get them use to the gun fire. As of Feb 2020 i am still a Level one shooter because since i started in mounted shooting i have been training horses and not been on the same horse so it holds me back from moving up. I competed in the 2019 CMSA Futurity on  my Mare Harley Kisses and i had only owned her 5 months at the time of futurity and only had that short time to train her for mounted shooting and she did great. My focus was to shoot clean and not push her and we Placed 3rd.
