Testimonials from past customers
"We are pleased to have an opportunity to express our support for Luce Reins Training. We have known Lara Luce for several years through the Texas A & M, Commerce Equine Facility. We have been privileged to work with some of the horses she has trained at the college.
Personally, she has worked with 2 of our horses at our ranch off and on over the past year. Lara is not only dedicated to making a better horse through positive training techniques, but also improving the skills of the rider with patience and helpful pointers. Professionally, we have referred many of our horse clients (all breeds) to Luce Reins Training and their owners have all been very pleased with the outcomes.
Lara is a capable and responsible person. She has exceptional abilities to communicate with your horse and you. She is always on time, uses effective training tools, i.e. videos all training appointments, completes training of a specific task with each appointment, and above all uses safe methods with you and your horse. Best of all she comes to your facility which keeps the stress level for you and your horse at a minimum!"
Happy trails to all of you and don’t forget about your horses health."

"Lara Luce worked with my three-year old Arabian gelding, who was unbroken. This experience was a fantastic opportunity for my horse (Calypso), as well as for myself. Lara took the training at just the right pace and was able to adjust it for whatever Calypso needed and fit his needs the best. Everything was clearly explained and videotaped. Calypso responded to the training incredibly. I wouldn't change a thing about the training. Also, Lara and Kris were great people to be around and get to know."

Lara to the rescue!
"We knew nothing about horses however love animals and our little boy wanted a horse for his 6 birthday. A week before his birthday we bought him a horse then Heaven placed Lara in our lives. Lara is a walking encyclopedia, she has taught us how to care for our horses and has guided us with patience and honesty.
Lara has a passion that shines through. She has worked with our horse in a loving and caring manner. Lara has always placed safety first making sure no one gets hurt. Lara has also been explaining what is happening at every lesson and a video is provided. We love watching the videos and just seeing the growth in our horse Zak.
Words can not express our gratitude to Lara and Kris, these two young people have a high level of integrity and work ethic.
A million thanks for all that you have done!"

"We are happy to recommend Lara Luce as a professional horse trainer. We have known her for about 8 months and have enjoyed our working relationship and our friendship with her.
We bought our horse from a friend who had only halter broke him. Lara took our 4 yr old gelding who was very head strong, and gently made him feel comfortable with her and the training methods. We could tell that he was always glad to see her on training days. Her methods of consistency and gentle persuasion have been very successful for him.
She is very knowledgeable with her particular style of training and likes to explain the different techniques employed. I really enjoyed her commentary about the training and felt like I was also being educated. It is obvious to us that she really likes what she is doing, which makes it a very pleasurable experience for the owner and the horse.
I would not hesitate to recommend Luce Reins Training to anyone who desires a professional horse trainer."

"Lara truly has a heart for horses and loves her work with them. She is enthusiastic, kind and patient and seems to have a knack at how best to approach a problem horse. Thank you for the work you did with my horse Ravi and for giving me back some of my confidence in my riding skills."

"Lara has worked with three of our horses, one of which was very high spirited and sentback to us by four other trainers. He is still very spirited but he can be ridden now. Lara was very gentle with the horses but had a firm hand when needed. Lara is very dependable and always on time which means a lot to me. You can tell that she really loves horses and loves what she does. I would highly recommend her to anyone that needs a horse broke or a tune up. She will get the job done."
"Lara has been working with our horses for quite a bit. A year? 2 years? - the time does fly (we had 4 that she worked for us but Sadie passed away). She is gentle & patient, but is not afraid to teach when necessary. She can put our horses in 'autopilot' which is really a treat! Lara is a great trainer, loving and respectful of your horse and we highly recommend her.
You will not be disappointed!"

"Lara is SUCH a fount of information! I have greatly enjoyed learning from her and appreciate her candidness. I recently adopted a rescue she had met. Her recommendations and frank opinions of my mare have really helped me in expectations, handling, and introduction. I foresee a beautiful human/equine friendship based heavily on Lara's help."
