Testimonials

My daughter and I recently attended your Horsemanship clinic and thoroughly enjoyed it. You had both of our horses listening to us better than I ever imagined possible. One of my horses had never done any lateral work and you had us side passing beautifully. Thank you for being so articulate and breaking difficult maneuvers into steps we could understand. I highly recommend your clinics.

About Joe Weitekamp

Owner and Trainer at Weitekamp Horse Training

Joe Weitekamp

Joe Weitekamp, Horse Trainer


Early Years

I grew up in Tucson, Arizona where I trained my own horses for many years for Team Roping, Team Penning, and just riding out in the Catalina Mountains and Sonoran Desert.

I spent 21 years in Las Vegas, Nevada until I relocated to Texas. I now live in Pilot Point, Texas with my wife, Kim, and our three children at our training facility.

I plan to stay in Texas and continue working with horses and their owners. The services I offer include Performance horse training and showing; specifically Reining, as well as groundwork and riding clinics and riding lessons.

Although I trained horses for many years, I started training mustangs and competing in the Extreme Mustang Make Over Competitions in 2009, competing in 4 competitions from 2009 – 2012.

During this time, I was introduced to the sport of reining and my passion for Reining has been growing by leaps and bounds ever since. You will see a heavy reining influence in all of my training as I believe that reining is the perfect foundation for any horse.

Testimonials

I just wanted to thank you again for her wonderful start in partnership with humans. She is everything and more than my highest hopes to find again after having two such loving and kind horse partners in the past. The first mare I had for 34 years, the second I had for only 20 years, but they were such true soul mates and I believe Bella will be everything they were and more.

Just an update on Dyno, he is amazing. He has already bonded with everyone. We can not go outside without him neighing at us and he won't stop neighing until we go up to him and pet him. He is such a laid back horse, nothing really seems to bother him. [...] Thanks for all of the hard work you put into Dyno!
