What Others Have To Say


"Dan and Dawn Chambers of Chambers Horsemanship are amazing people. We took our 2 1/2 year old quarter horse gelding to them for training, because we wanted our horse to also learn respect and patience, not just walk , trot and canter. Dan and Dawn went above and beyond our expectations with my horses' training. We recently brought our horse back home after 4 months of training, and I am excited to start our journey together whether it be on trails or in the show ring. I know if any issues arrive that Dan and Dawn will be there to lend a helping hand.  Thank you very much,"

"It felt like my horse and I would take 1 step forward and 2 steps back every week for years. We were getting stuck and frustrated with each other. I was on the fence about finding a trainer and it was a difficult decision because I'm not from the area and don't know very many people. I am so grateful that I finally took the leap and impulsively reached out to Chambers Horsemanship. Dawn responded to me very quickly and took the time to understand my concerns on the phone. The entire process was helpful and I really feel like Dawn and Dan were able to work with me and my horse together. My confidence with my horse and my riding had really decreased in the last few years and this entire experience has helped so much with that. They were able to put in time and training with my horse which she needed but also give me the confidence to change my riding and keep up with the work after I brought my horse home. Now trail riding has gone from being stressful and anxiety provoking to a fun activity that we both look forward to. We have been able to continue the arena work without getting stuck. One of the things I am most thankful for is having a toolbox of things I can try when my horse and I do get frustrated or aren't clicking, even though that happens less often now. I cannot thank Dawn and Dan enough for their advice, time, and support! It's been invaluable to me!"

"The first time I saw Dawn riding it was like watching magic.  The connection between her and her horse was remarkable.  Dawn rode into the arena as natural as fish swimming in water. It was beautiful! I knew right then Dawn would be my trainer and coach. In a short time Dawn trained my Gypsy Vanner colt to be confident, quite, patient and responsive.  He is now a horse willing to execute any obstacle I put before him with a foundation to succeed in any discipline. Everywhere I take my colt people are amazed on how well he was started.  You’ve heard it said that behind every great horse is an amazing trainer. That trainer is Dawn Chambers from Chambers Horsemanship. Dawn will train your horse to be quiet, patient, responsive and confident. Free from tricks and gimmicks she will train your horse to be a lifelong partner. Dawn gives thought to what she’s asking the horse to do, how she’s going to ask him to do it and is consistent in doing so. She keeps the communication open with you as she progress through the training/teaching-journey openly sharing her knowledge and experience. Dawn will expose your horse to many different obstacles and challenges giving the horse confidence so that when you are riding your horse he’s willing with confidence. Dawn creates a partnership between you and your horse resulting in a fun and exciting life long partnership.  Your horse can with confidence and quietness, conquer any obstacle you place before him. I live in Oklahoma, when I heard that Dawn Chambers from Chambers Horsemanship at S&W Quarter Horses was accepting outside horses for training I immediately got on Dawn’s books. I sent my ground broke colt to Dawn Chambers at Chambers Horsemanship, when I picked him up, he was a quiet riding horse, responsive and able to do all transitions I asked.  Together we have applied our training from Dawn and traveled down many trails, competed successfully in horse shows, obstacle challenges and daily work cattle at our ranch."

-Pam McCaslin

"I looked for a trainer that would give us and our horses a strong, solid foundation. What I found was a great team in Dan and Dawn Chambers at Chambers Horsemanship. We were extremely pleased with the horses we got back. The girls left a bit unruly, needing direction and guidance and came back soft, confident, respectful, well-rounded trail riding horses. In just eight weeks, Dawn and Dan had both girls under saddle, riding out confidently alone, ready for us to take over the reins. We wasted no time hitting the trails. Our girls are well on their way thanks to Chambers Horsemanship. I look forward to working with them again and would highly recommend."

I bought Jewels in the summer of 2022 to use on the farm to check cows and sort on.  Jewels is a pretty fancy bred cutting mare with some buttons.  She was handy broke and wanted to please but there were some issues that she had that made those tasks a little stressful for both she and I.  Although very well broke, she had one primary issue that really dictated how everything else went.  She was really anxious when it came to new situations.  Although I have trained countless young horses and tuned up plenty of others when I was younger, I didn’t have the time I knew would be required to get Jewels past her anxiety issues.  A friend of mine told me about Chambers Horsemanship so I contacted Dawn.  We talked for a while and I gave her the background.  Basically, she had been started as a 4 year old and some of the important lessons were skipped.  When I dropped her off I gave Dawn a wish list.  Although not a skeptic, I am an experienced realist so I knew it was unlikely that she would be able to check all of those boxes in only two months – especially considering she was facing December and January.  Dawn and I talked weekly through the entire process and she sent me progress videos with each new task/milestone.  I visited multiple times over the two months and witnessed the progress first-hand.  I brought her home on February 1st.  Due to the weather, I wasn’t able to ride her for the first week.  I saddled her up on a windy, cool Sunday afternoon and I couldn’t believe the change.  Dawn had told me early on that Jewels’ issues were more about confidence than anything else and that was going to be her primary focus.  On our first ride, Jewels was a different horse.  The situations that had hindered her before (mud, creeks, squealing pasture buddy) were no longer a source of anxiety.  Although Dawn hadn’t really been able to expose her to very many outside days due to the weather, she taught her how to be confident.  The change happened in her mind and the lessons she learned inside (mainly) had translated to outside when I got her home.   The same situations that turned into bit chewing, constant feet movement, and sweat two months earlier almost seemed like routine to her on the very first ride back home.  Her focus and attention were on me and not her surroundings.  The exercises and foundation that Dawn gave her over the two months were all designed to engage her mind and to redirect when needed.  When I picked her up Dawn went over the cues with me and I headed home.
