PROFESSIONAL HORSE TRAINER                                             337-384-6997 (Rachel's cell)

     Rachel Bertrand was raised on a rice farm and cattle ranch in rural Crowley, Louisiana. She walked at seven months and began riding at three years of age...believe it or not! She and her family used horses for working cattle, pleasure riding and competition. Rachel has a way with horses, is how it was described back then! Her apparent gift for handling horses began in her pre-teen years. Unlike most young girls, her love for horses did not fade and her desire to teach them became a skill. Over the years she developed methods to break and train horses by gentle means. In her words she, "gains their trust and never lets them down." She believes "if a horse loves you, he will run to his death for you". Meaning a horse is willing to please beyond his limits and trusts his rider will keep him from harm.

     Rachel began training horses professionally after graduating college in 1984.  She has started hundreds of horses under saddle ranging in age from 16 months to eleven years. She works primarily with Quarter Horses, Thoroughbreds, Paints, and Arabians. She is most known for producing horses with a solid foundation and an excellent using handle which prepares them for any discipline. She trains and finishes barrel horses, using horses, working cow horses, pleasure horses, trail riding horses and more. She halter breaks, re-trains and re-tunes horses at any level. In her spare time she is out working cattle, on a trail ride or at the barn making friends with a new arrival!                                  Friend Rachel on Facebook:   NOW

*********** CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS ************** 

  Bryan C.: Rachel Bertrand is TOP NOTCH and, in my opinion, the best trainer in the business. She is, first and foremost, knowledgeable of each horses's individual needs as well as patient with positive reinforcement. (Not only with the horse, but owner as well.)  My horse - Rowdy... was just that "Rowdy"! Always in your personal space and very disrespectful. My first visit during the training - about 3 weeks in, was astounding!!  He was a totally different horse! Rachel had him tied and standing with his head down, very relaxed and he never attempted to be disrespectful or get in our space. That was a lot of the reason I sent him to her. The way he handled and responded to me after she started him under saddle was an added bonus! Again, this was just a few weeks in. She not only trains while the horse is with her, but she's there for you when you take them home. She would call me periodically just to check on our progress and make sure I was doing what needed to be done. I can't say enough about her experience and abilities. I can say this... if anyone is looking for the BEST, Rachel Bertrand is their lady!! 
  Mary V.: Rachel Bertrand did an amazing job with my young filly who had serious issues with loading inn my trailer and ditch/water crossings. She is a pleasure to ride now and loads easily. She followed up with me several times to see how things were going after we got home. I would RECOMMEND  Rachel Bertrand without hesitation! She is honest and has an intuitive ability to communicate with horses.   ******************************************************************************************************************
