Warren Thompson has over 60 years of experience raising and training horses. He describes training as his passion. He has a clam, gentle spirit that reflects in his work. Horsemanship and communication with the horse are the main emphasis in his training techniques.
Warren started riding horses when he was five and training horses when he was in college and has been working with horses ever since. He has owned and operated Western Trail Horses in Sterling, Colorado since 2004. He has over 30 clients that he trains horse for each year. Warren also raises horses and has an inventory of about 20 horses.
Western Trail Horses employs two full-time employees and a number of part-time workers. Many of the employees are students in the Northeastern Junior College Equine Management program and their employment gives the student the opportunity to gain skills and experience working with many breeds of horses.
Warren is on the Advisory Board for the Equine Management Program at Northeastern Junior College and often supplies his own horse for use in the instructional program.
Warren and his wife Rita are partners in Western Trail Horses.
