Mike Kevil
As a child, Mike Kevil rode horses for leisure, and it wasn’t until his high school years that this pastime took a new direction. He headed to Colorado where he worked, and developed what he calls the “foundation of his training.” Riding and handling a variety of horses showed Mike that nothing compares to hands on experience. He began working with Gene LaCroix, an Arabian horse trainer, who refined his fundamentals further, teaching Mike about timing and feel, softness and pressure and giving a reason to everything you do. He was also fortunate to have worked for some of the great cutting horse trainers, Don Dodge, Shorty Freeman and Matlock Rose.For 40 years, Mike has developed his own training practices that include patience, consistency and understanding the horse. Before the modern day term “Horse Whisperer” Mike was a master of this art. Today, he has numerous horses in his training program and a full waiting list. Although he admits that he does not get hung up on terms such as “Horse Whisperer,” he continually strives to become a “good hand.” Mike is the noted author of “Starting Colts, a Western Horseman Book” and its DVD counterparts, “Starting Colts.”
