Ty is a talented teacher of horses and people. With patience and
insight--and I think some magic-- he changed my nervous,difficult 20 year old Paso Fino into a happier, safer animal and taught me how to work more effectively with all of my horses. Ty has helped with whatever I asked, whether it was teaching me to be a better rider, re-educating and "fine-tuning" my horses, diagramming my horses for a custom saddle, thoroughly evaluating a prospective new mount, and even building a mounting block.
Ty is knowledgeable, professional, encouraging, supportive, and kind, and I give him my highest recommendation.

Ty has been such an encouragement to my daughter. Before beginning to work with him, she was experiencing problems with her horse that she wasn’t equipped to handle on her own. Ty’s patient and kind demeanor is a perfect fit for us. His expertise in how a horse thinks and responds has been invaluable, and his careful communication makes it easy to understand and implement new techniques. Ty has been able to develop a level of confidence in my daughter and in her horse that has allowed her to finally begin truly enjoying time with her horse. She is learning to recognize difficult situations in her horse early and she is being equipped with ways to help him through those situations when they arise. Working with Ty has been such an enjoyable experience. We look forward to continuing our relationship with him as he helps my daughter help her horse become the best horse he can be!
Thanks for the best ride I have had on my old guy so far. I love that you are always thinking and trying to make things the best they can be.
We wanted to say a big Thank You for your help yesterday. We were so impressed with your ability and your calm and gentle ways. We were totally, totally awed.
Again, thank you -- we can't tell you how much we enjoyed watching you work!

I first met Ty approximately 3 years ago as he witnessed me working with my skittish/fearful & anxious 4 year old mare. The few skills I had learned, combined with my own strong/anxious personality, were not working to calm her down to create a trusting relationship. I have only had a few opportunities to work with Ty and each time has been positive! This clinic (An On-the-Trail Clinic), with a longer length in time, has been such an eye opener! He has really shown me how to understand her & her needs. He has shown me how important it is to slow down in every way, to help her succeed and not to take too large of jumps before we are ready! He has encouraged me.

We met Ty at an 'On The Trail Clinic' we attended. I attended as a spectator and my 13 year old daughter rode her horse, Iceman. This was our first time attending one of Ty's clinics. Ty was friendly and very patient with the riders and their horses. The clinic was educational, very relaxing and individualized. Each rider was given ample time to work with their horse on whatever issues they were needing to work on. My daughter gained a new perspective on how to work with her horse by establishing boundaries and also by helping Iceman learn to let go of a thought so he would respond to her. My daughter also learned to be more patient with Iceman. It was amazing watching Ty teach and work with the horses. God has truly gifted him to work with these amazing animals! I would highly recommend attending one of his clinics!

My daughter and I have attended three of Ty's clinics and we have learned so much! We have a Quarter horse and a Tennessee Walking horse each with their own issues. Ty was so laid back and makes you feel at ease the moment you meet him. His clinics are good for anyone with a lot of riding experience or just beginning to learn the basics of riding. It has helped my daughter and I so much in understanding how the horse thinks and how to deal with unsafe behaviors. He really helps you develope a closer relationship with your horse. I would highly recommend coming to one of Ty's cllinics and grow in your knowledge of horsemanship.
I have to admit that I was very nervous about coming to the clinic. Our bad ride [at home] the Saturday before really had me concerned about what might happen [at the clinic]. I really didn't want an audience if I had a train wreck. My fears never came true! You gave us tools to use to help keep our horses' minds and our minds from getting excited and crazy. We really did learn a lot of things and more importantly we got to use them as we where learning them. You have helped my release timing. I can actually see things better now.
Our discussions around the dinner table and in the living room were fantastic! I really did a lot of thinking about myself and how I can help my horse. I had some answers to some of my problems but I didn't know it till you pointed it out. For example, that I thought that my mechanical problem solving mind wasn't good for working with my horse. Or stopping and taking a break to rethink how to help my horse, like I do when diagnosing a troublesome problem at work. You help everyone feel included in what is going on. I look forward to and am excited for our next clinic! The time that we got to spend with you was fantastic!
Two years ago, this month, I began a journey to "fix" my horse. Levi and I never seemed to click and I was giving it one last shot before I sold him. I hired Ty Haas and every other week we would work 1 - 2 hours on issues. In my mind, all Levi's problems should be worked out in a month or two. HA! After about three months, I was getting really discouraged. I did not feel like Levi was progressing enough and I was not sure that I was "buying" what Ty was "selling". Ty’s methods are different from anything I had learned. Just about the time I was ready to throw my hat in the ring, I started to see small changes during our lessons that kept me scheduling just one more. Ty told me that I needed to get rid of my agenda and that horses are not the problem, it's the humans. After letting that soak in I decided I was ALL in and continued my lessons. Tonight, after working Levi, I got to thinking about how far we have come. Once I knocked down all my walls (I am VERY stubborn) and quit resisting Ty’s methods, things started falling into place. The easiest thing to do would have been to quit. The path I chose of patience and time is way more rewarding than anything else I had for planned us!!
Thank you, Ty Haas!! I will be forever grateful!!
