Christine, I want to thank you for helping me find Chica the perfect horse for me and my granddaughers. I have had horses since I was 12 years old and have had some good ones that were forever horses. I have tried to find a replacement. Unfortunately I have been burned in the process with people not being honest. I truly dreaded the thought of trying again. I have been watching your website off an on for a couple years but wasn't ready. I just decided Tuesday that I am not going to settle and I want to truly enjoy my horse and have something safe for my grandkids. I seen Chica and she sounded exactly what I was looking for plus she is beautiful. I read all the reviews and saw how many people bought sight un seen with most of them saying they would never do that, I also felt the same way. Talking to you put me at ease so I did take the leap of faith two days later Thursday and I am so glad I did. I have found my forever horse and I can't thank you enough for your honesty and integrity that you show in your business practices. I feel blessed to have Chica.
My daughter came across Winston on dreamhorse.com and saw he was at Precision Horse Training. His video wow'ed her and we planned to meet but found ourselves in Canada instead for a vacation we could not reschedule. Christine was very quick to respond to all our questions. We wanted a horse that had a lot of personality and would bond and be very sweet. Christine described how Winston would come right to her if she entered the stall and lower his head to snuggle. Against our better judgment we bought him sight unseen as we could not get to OR from Canada in a timely manner. We trusted Christine with the information and description of Winston. He arrived via a shipper she recommended, in good health and was everything she described and more. He has more personality than we ever expected. He is sweet, a clown, kind and willing to work hard. He loves all the other horses he meets, he gets along with every horse and human. She fell in love with him immediately. They just got high point along with other ribbons at Donida farms in last weekend's show. He will be competing in Wahset, 4H and they plan to start AQHA and other circuits. We look forward to their future accomplishments. We are not looking for another horse at the moment, but if we ever do, I would not hesitate to buy another from Christine. I have told several people about you and your place and they were impressed and plan to check your website regularly.
We truly cannot thank you enough for Whiskey and how amazing he is. We took him out today for his first trail ride and he was everything we hoped for and more. He truly is worth his weight in gold! He is everything like you described and more. He is the perfect family horse and will spend the rest of his days loved. My daughter (14months) loves waving and saying “hi horsie” and laying her head on his neck. I can’t wait for the two of them to grow up together. We truly can’t thank you enough and just know that Whiskey has an amazing home. We did change his name. His official name will be Sergeant Murphy but we will call him Murph [my daughters name is Reagan (after the president) so we tried to find one that fit with Ronald Reagan- aka the movie Ronald Reagan starred in]
this is Vanessa in Southern California. I’ve been wanting to write you a nice review for sometime now. I purchased a handsome AQHA from you named Mr. T. You told me he was a very mellow horse but a little green. Thank you for your honesty. I put him in training and he’s turned out to be phenomenal all around guy. I recently purchased another horse from someone else and it made me appreciate you even more. Everyone in the family fights over riding Mr. T. We adore him. Thank you!
So Happy with Chip! I was searching for a certain Bloodline & temperament. Chip is everything Christine said he would be. He traveled from Oregon to Pennsylvania with a shipper recommended by Christine they took their time stopped every night with a day off to rest. Chip walked off the trailer happy & perfect. Thanks Precision Training, Christine & trailering Team for my heart Horse Chip.
I wanted to thank you again and tell you how thrilled I am with Sampson. He's just what you said he was, sweet, willing, people oriented, good minded (very good!), a little green, athletic, and quiet. And of course I think he's drop dead gorgeous! There have been no surprises with him. He's taking to cowboy dressage basics like a duck to water, and we have our first Mt. Trail clinic in August.
I have always purchased horses directly from the owner so wasn't sure how this kind of sale would work, but you were wonderful to work with! You were friendly and professional in every aspect. The horses are beautifully kept and presented, communication was easy and quick, and you were up front and honest about the horse and purchase process. I appreciated the help when I asked about hauling and the prepurchase exam, and how appointments were on time and unhurried. So much easier than some past horse buying experiences!
I'll keep in touch and share some of our adventures together!
All the best,
*We are from the Boise area, and had the pleasure to meet Christine in February, when we drove to Medford to look at a 2yr old paint horse that was for sale.
My 15yr old daughter and I immediately were comfortable with Christine's outgoing, professional personality, her knowledge and experience with training horses and helping people find the right horse.
The barn and all the animals were exceptionally well cared for, and Christine did an excellent job of demonstrating the horses skill level, and answering any questions we had.
When we picked up the horse in April and brought her home, we continue to be amazed, at the exceptional foundation and under saddle training that Christine had given this filly. I believe we are at ride #15, and this filly is trotting very consistently and quiet - which is an absolute reflection of the quality n integrity start she got being started by Christine!
Thank U Christine - we are so thankful we met you! You are a great horseman!

RE: Little Grey Gelding (Precision Horse Training)
I have been actively looking for a nice ranch gelding for many years. Every time I would find one that I liked it always came back from Precision Horse Training. I finally decided this year was the year to purchase. I saw the cutest Rose Grey Gelding on Precision Horse Training’s website. I called and spoke with owner Christine Boehle.
Christine was very helpful, upfront and extremely honest about the grey gelding. I live in California and had made an appointment to ride the gelding. I had a veterinarian go out to the facility and do a pre purchase exam prior to my appointment. This was the week of the biggest snow storm Redding Ca has had in a long time.
I decided to purchase the gelding without riding him or seeing him in person and had him transported to my residence. I would never buy a horse without personally seeing him but Christine made me feel very comfortable in my decision.
This was the best decision I ever made and my little grey gelding is the best horse I have ever owned. At 5 years old that gelding will go through anything on the trail and give his all. I highly recommend purchasing any horse from Christine. She was one of the most honest horse people I have ever come across. She cares about her horses and cares about the homes they go to. If I have a question I can contact her and she answers right away. I’m in the process of looking for a horse for my husband and I will look no further than Precision Horse Training.
Chaco...Love at 1st Sight! Well, Christine, your handsome hero is home in Hornbrook, he ate hay, organic grain and is totally loving the freedom & abundant Spring green grass. Brazos Wilfong was polite, friendly, totally professional just like the owner of Precision Training LLC. You ALL have been out of this world, wow.
Thanks & Much Obliged, Happy are the Trails,
I had been looking for a good, well trained horse. I had lost my previous horse, Lady, so this horse had to be like she had been--special. I contacted Christine at Precision Training, after viewing her video, pictures and description of one of her horses (Chip) she had for sale. She was always available to answer my questions and was very straightforward. The whole process from purchase to delivery was professional and easy. Chip is a sweet horse and a pleasure to ride. I highly recommend Christine and her company!
A belated Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!
I wanted to let you know that Mav and I are doing really great. He is the sweetest horse. Just a love. The ranch manager wishes all the horses were as level headed and cooperative as Mav. He had his teeth floated and new shoes and both the Ferrier and vet commented on what a joy Mav is to work with.
Mav is doing very well on the lounge line and under saddle as well. We are working on some lateral movements and he just has the most cooperative attitude.
Thank you so very much for all the wonderful training and foundation you put on this lovely horse.
Stacy and Mav Rohnert Park, CA
Thanks Christine for selling me a fantastic horse. I was reluctant to by online, but I got exactly what I wanted. Newt is well trained, smart and honest, as described. Christine told me, that his greatest selling point was his personality, and I could not agree more. I would recommend anyone, looking to buy a horse to her, and I will happily buy from her again and I hope to.

Hi Christine, wanted to thank you for our new guy Houston. He is a sweet, gentle and kind horse who is fitting in to our family beautifully. He loves to go out on trail, loves to lead and we are trusting him with anyone.
Good morning. You probably don't remember me as my wife purchased all four of our horses from you. I want you to know what a great horse Lane has been for me. Our trust in you is rewarded by the best little herd in the world. Lane and I have a special bond. Because of my spine issues I only ride once or twice a week. He really takes care of me as a rider. So much so that we are using him for other disabled Veterans. Once again, thank you for picking him out for us.

I have bought 2 horses from precision and I am in awe at how well behaved and trained they are. Christine has been so helpful with guiding me towards the perfect fit and she has been accurate both times. Love you guy
Christine with Precision Training, has been amazing. I bred my mare to Skips Classic Gold this late spring. She has always been available to answer questions I had, collection shipments always went out on time. Christine works in the reproductive area so she would give me her opinion if I asked.
I would recommend Precision Training to anyone. I am considering them to working with my mares foal next year.
From what I here through my extended family, who also has a horse in training with them, their horses are very well trained. Level headed, and dependable.
To Christine at Precision Horse Training. Thank you so much for our new family addition of Zoey. She is such a sweet lovely horse. Your in depth knowledge of her personality was spot on. You answered every question I had with confidence. I could really feel how connected you were to each of your horses and their individuality. You were also so accommodating in helping with the pre purchase. I only wish I had room for more of your beautiful horses. Thank you again.
Precision training is a professional, knowledgeable and caring horse facility.
Christine knows everything about training and selling horses just watch her videos!
I would highly recommend Precision Horse training for anyone looking to purchase or train a horse as Christine is wonderful to work with:)
I am writing this review regarding Christine Wakefield of precision Training in Rogue River, Oregon. I purchased a paint mare from her in February of 2018. At the time her name was “Desi” and you can see her video on YouTube, “Desi for Sale”.
I started to watch the internet for a good looking paint and fell in love. I live in Chicago so all was done over the phone, via text and watching videos. In the initial conversation and video, I learned that “Desi”, now “Cowgirl” could walk and trot. Christine told me she was a prospect horse and that walk and trot was where she was at. I asked if she would keep her and train her to extend her trot and to lope. Christine agreed to do so and within two months she had “cowgirl” doing a nice slow trot, an extended trot and a really nice lope. She did everything she said she could and more.
Additionally, she took my calls and kept me informed about “cowgirls” progress on a regular basis. I live in a near north suburb of Chicago and ride horses every morning on the Cook County Forest Preserve trails. The day after I bought “Cowgirl”, I was on those trails crossing six lane roads and riding adjacent to those roads with police cars, ambulances, dump trucks, motorcycles, bicycles, skateboards and more moving in close proximity. “Cowgirl” handled it all like a champ. Within one week we were doing it all bareback, my preference. Since my purchase I have followed Christine’s website regularly and am impressed by her ability to sell horses but not surprised as she produces what she promises. I look forward to my next purchase. Keep up the good work Christine. It’s been a pleasure.
Thank you Christine! You are one amazing person, so honest and wonderful.. means so much! Always there to answer any questions.
Everything that you said about JD and Bandit they are that and more!
I couldn’t be any happier. I have never bought a horse sight unseen, but after talking to Christine and letting her know what I was looking for.. she was able to match my needs with the 2 wonderful boys I now own. I highly recommend Christine, she is the most honest and wonderful person I’ve ever met in the horse world. If I buy a 3rd horse I’m definitely going back to Precision with Christine.
Thank you so much again Christine!
You have made me and my kids so happy!
They are in love with Bandit!
Santa Maria, Ca
Hi Miss Christine,u rock! So happy that the problem may have been found!! You are an amazing gal! Nice,intuitive, caring,and just plain awesome! I am very grateful for our friendship and ur expertise with our Quigs. He brought us together in a great friendship.
Mexico is ur next stop!! Right! You are a rare breed in the horse buying selling arena. Never in all my years ever cane across someone with ur passion.Thank you!
Thank you a million times.
Christine, I wanted to express my appreciation for the professionalism with which you conduct your business. Our horse Cosmo, is everything you represented him to be and is a fabulous addition to our family. I also wanted to thank you for managing the logistics of the vet check and transportation. I have received numerous comments on what a great horse he is and I will not hesitate to point any inquiries to you.
Very best wishes,
After searching through hundreds of ads, talking to dozens of sellers, traveling all over California and checking out multiple horses for sale, I was about ready to give up and wait for my next horse to "walk into my life." Friends urged me to look at the sale horses at Precision Training, and I am so glad I did! Christine does a fabulous job training and presenting her horses. She is straightforward, honest, and really cares about matching the buyer with the right horse for their skill level and goals. The horse I bought is also straightforward and honest, well trained for his job and a looker to boot! If I had to do it over again, I would start my search at Precision.
I had been watching Christine's sale videos for sometime. Her horses all seem to have amazing attitudes and I admire her training ability.
My husband finally admitted I needed another horse. The first place I looked was precicionhorsetraing.com. I saw 4 horses I wanted to know more about. When we arrive I was impressed with everyone's (especially Christine's) friendliness. I told Christine what I wanted in a trail partner with arena experience, and only one fit my very specific requirements and desires. Christine was very honest and informed me the horse I was most interested in was not what I was looking for. So I rode Noah. He is so amazing. He is exactly what I was looking for and so much more. I do believe he is the nicest, best behaved horse I've ever met. We had a great experience. Thank you Christine.
Our family lives on the Big Island, Hawaii and got into the horse community last year. We found it difficult here in the islands to find a suitable horse for our two young daughters. We wanted a safe, sane, sound and suitable gelding that was appropriate for our 8 and 10 year old daughters beginners skills, but one they could also grow with. After coming up short finding what we were looking for in the islands, we expanded our search to the mainland. I found Christine through a web search and also saw her horses on Dream Horse and gave her a call. Christine was accommodating, warm and really listened to our list of what we were looking for. She had several horses at that time that could have been a good fit but one in particular, Ringo an 11 year old AQHA registered grullo gelding, she thought would be the best fit for us. It was difficult to plan since most horses that we were looking at sell very quickly to people that are close enough to go see the horses in person. I wasn't comfortable buying a horse sight unseen or without a vet check. Christine explained her warranty (if you aren't satisfied with your horse at any time, she will take them back and re-sell) and encouraged (without being pushy) for me to consider purchasing this horse sight unseen since there were several others interested in and ready to buy him. She helped coordinate a vet check. Although she doesn't "hold" horses, she extends the courtesy of holding a horse once a vet check has been scheduled pending the outcome. She took ample time and quickly responded to all my questions, phone calls, texts etc. Dr. Benson from Rogue Equine Hospital performed the vet check and he spoke with me over the phone before and after. He was thorough and specific about the results of the check. Ringo seemed like a perfect fit for us so we purchased him sight unseen! Christine kept Ringo as a boarder until we could come 3 weeks later to spend time with and ride him. He was everything as advertised. Our 8 year old hopped up on him and he took such good care of her. He was very broke, gentle and beautifully trained for our needs. Christine helped coordinate the hauling and shipping components of his travel to Hawaii. He arrived here (he is now called Dorado) and in the two months we have had him been a fantastic trail, AQHA show in trail, walk/jog, horsemanship and even a polo pony. He is willing, gentle and does everything we have asked of him without hesitation. In his former life he was a finished heel horse, so we will also try him out in different rodeo disciplines. I would recommend Christine and Precision Horse Training to anyone searching. The integrity of someone that will guarantee her horses the way she does says volumes about the quality of the horses she brings in and the time she spends assessing the horses before she puts them up for sale. Thanks, Christine!! Jill Henderson

Purchasing a horse long distance, especially when looking for a long-term commitment, can be a stressful event. Not so with Christine and Precision Horse Training. In our situation, we were looking at pairing a green horse with a green rider, and Christine was forthcoming wth her concern regarding our choice of horse. Christine wanted to make sure that neither horse nor rider were being set up for failure. However, after a wonderful dialogue we both felt the situation would work. Now that Ben has arrived, and as we are learning about him and he is learning about us, we are even more confident about our choice. Ben has a super sound mind, talent, and good looks that Precision is known for. Ben is providing the opportunity for a "newbie" to learn, from the ground up, ALL aspects of horsemanship, with a safe horse. We LOVE this gentle guy. Thanks for making sure Christine, and thanks to Wilfong Horse Transport for the safe delivery of this special guy!

I was certainly fortunate to buy my forever horse from Christine Wakefield of Precision Training. Sight unseen, I chose him from the lovely video of him. I am 68 years old and I was ready for a steady horse that I could take out on the trails, and feel comfortable in whatever setting we found ourselves. We certainly found that horse in Boomer. Christine answered all my questions, and made sure I was getting a horse that I would be very happy with for years to come. I would highly recommend getting your forever horse from Christine. We love everything about our new horse, Boomer. I wouldn’t hesitate to get another horse from Christine if for some reason that came up in my future. She expertly matches you with the right companion for your horse adventures.
Thanks again Christine. Love that boy!!!!
I have been working with Christine for about a year looking for my perfect last horse partner. Christine gets and sells a lot of fabulous horses. Every time I make an inquiry on one she is very quick to respond; sends me conformation photos within hours or less of my request. I have never had to ask more than once. When I’ve called she is always happy to discuss and has been super honest in telling me a particular horse I like is not really suitable and why. Best customer service and honest! Cannot go wrong working with Christine!
Dayna Muller, WA
Your care for our mare and taking the time and effort to get her in foal resulted in the wonderful filly we have out of "Skips Classic Gold". The facility you have is top notch!!! Thank you!!
I purchased my QH gelding ‘Boon Time Buddy' aka ‘Jimmy’ from Christine Wakefield at Precision Training a little over 6 months ago. He is by far the most wonderful horse I have ever owned. I have loved and enjoyed every horse I have owned for the last 50 plus years, but this guy is special. He is very willing, kind and gentle. He is a nice forward mover, works off leg and body language beautifully and loves to learn new thing. He’s a wonderful trail horse, pony horse, and arena horse. He’s now settled in and is part of the family. Thanks Christine for the great training you put into him.
I actually called Christine asking about another horse on her web site, but after talking with her we both decided he wasn’t what I was looking for. I then asked her about Jimmy. She said he was already spoken for but he was a great one. A few days later she called me back and let me know he was back on the market. I bought him sight unseen. Yikes, I’ve never done that before, but I’m happy to say it all worked out wonderfully. He did have a vet check though that turned out all good.
I am 60 years old and have had horses almost all my life. All my horses (except my first sweet little mare) have been either babies, rescues, or untrained when I got them. They all taught me a lot over the years. I figured at my age it was time to get that special one, and he is truly it!
Thank you so much Christine for matching me up with Jimmy!!! I have recommended you to many of my friends, and love the way you train horses and match people up to that perfect horse.
Look no farther than Precision Training. Christine will steer you in the right direction for the horse that fits your needs. I personally went up last year to ride one horse (family horse) and ended up buying TWO (one for myself). Her horses are exactly as she says they are. And if you have any questions, she has never been any farther than a text or phone call away. I have total confidence in Christine and her staff. So much, that three months after getting the first two, I called her, told her that I wanted/needed another horse and she knew immediately what I was looking for. It was almost a month before she contacted me back with our next horse. She found the "one" for us and we bought him just by her pictures, video and HER RECOMMENDATION! He is even better than the other two and completes our family perfectly! My whole family, children and grandchildren, feel so blessed to have Christine in our lives by providing us these fabulous horses. All of our horse buying will be through Precision Training. And don't forget her fabulous delivery crew, Sarah. What a pleasure to work with.

I purchased JR from Precision Training a few months ago and I am very happy that I did.
Christine was honest, kind, friendly, and extremely good at her profession. I like the way she handles and trains her horses.
JR settled in well with my other horses and there were no surprises, he was the same horse I rode at Christine's place.
I would recommend doing business with Christine, and when I'm in the market for a new horse I will definitely look at Precision Training first.
I have owned my horse Hunter for over a year now and have truly had the chance to know him for all that Christine said this amazing horse would be! I bought Hunter over the phone and had never done this before and frankly very concerned if I was making the right choice on purchasing a horse from another state and just going by all that Christine his trainer had to say about him. My horse Hunter turned out to be not only one of the most beautiful horses I have ever owned but exactly as Christine described him!! If you are lucky enough to purchase a horse from Christine you won't be sorry I am so thankful I took the leap!!!
Thank you Christine,
It's been a pleasure working with Christine and everyone at Precision Training. Christine has been very helpful with the AI process of breeding Skips Classic Gold to my mare. She was very quick to reply to my emails and I was able to get the shipment in a quick timely manner even with not much notice. I'm very excited for my mare to have her foal next May!
Thanks again for all the help!
Just wanted you to know how much we love this Molly. She is so sane and smart and safe. My boyfriend has her coming to his whistle already and my mom says she's her new favorite mount. We totally adore her! And she gets along GREAT with my little arab! They are quite the pair and match really well together on the trail. Thanks for everything!
Thanks Christine Wakefield ~
What a crazy experience buying my second and also fabulous horse from you in the late fall. I called you in need of a gelding that was quiet enough for my husband or novice friends, after seeing your website which was full of GELDINGS! I left it to you saying "I don't even care how old the horse is, just need a rock solid safe horse!!"
You immediately suggested Bandit, although you told me about them all. When I said I could come in a few days, you said you had 2 sets of people coming to see him the next
day and suggested I simply get him sight unseen, that he was a "keeper!"
I immediately said "I never buy anything without a vet check," but you assured me that you always work the horses quite hard for a couple of weeks prior to putting them on your sale page, and find out as much as possible from the previous owners to assure there wouldn't be a problem especially on a horse that is only 10 years old. With that said, I took a chance and have never been happier!!
Bandit has gone from a "ranch horse" to an English arena horse who we even have jumped a tiny bit (but since I really want this one to hold up for trails, jumping will not be his main job). We plan to do some penning this spring, and has already started his other new discipline of Extreme Mountain Trail Obstacles.....
Thank you for helping us out, and being so honest about everything. I loved the fact you sent us home with an "owners manual" that included most everything about the horse including his blanket size!!!
In one word, Precision Horse Training is AMAZING! Hands down the best breeding facility in the valley! They are very good at what they do and I won't take my mares anywhere else! I know I can drop my mares off to be bred and not only will they come home safely in foal, but I know I will be contacted regularly, my mares will be cared for like their own, and I can rest easy knowing all is well. I absolutely love Christine Wakefield and her staff and highly recommend them for ANYTHING you need, from breeding to training and sales, Precision is the only way to go!!!!
We feel so completely fortunate to have met Christine Wakefield and the Precision Horse Training family last year. After keeping an eye on her website for some time we ended up purchasing a spectacular gelding from her. He has been absolutely awesome and he definitely was exactly what was advertised. Just as I was impressed with my new boy I was even more blown away by Christine's utter professionalism. The first day we met her I was overwhelmed by her kindness and the amount of patience she took with me. Having been "horseless" for many years I was slightly apprehensive but Christine made that one of the best days in recent history for me. I left her place with a sore face from smiling so much! Christine never made me feel silly or rushed, she took a lot of time out of her day to ensure I was confident and comfortable with my new horse. It was even her idea for me to haul my saddle out to her barn so she could ensure that I was properly set up with my new boy who is definitely not easy to fit. Purchasing through her was such an exceptional experience all around that I have now purchased two more horses through her and both have been top notch. In fact, that is the only way to describe Precision Training: top notch. Christine conducts herself with the highest level of professionalism and honesty. She hasn't hesitated to tell me if a horse is not going to be a match for me or my family on more than one occasion. I appreciate knowing that she is not in the business of selling us a horse, rather she is in the business of helping match us with our perfect horse. Equally as important I know that any horse she represents is going to be exactly what she says it is, healthy and safe.
Prior to shipping our horses to us they were each boarded at her barn temporarily. Christine and her staff provided impeccable care for our geldings and when they stepped off the trailer at our place they were in great shape and even freshly bathed! The boys even shipped with shiny new rope halters and all their pertinent information in a folder for me, nothing was overlooked. It has been refreshing to meet someone who conducts herself so ethically and professionally with such a friendly demeanor. Our new horses have been a wonderful addition to our family. However, we are very grateful that we have also made wonderful friends in Christine and her family. We are happy customers and Precision fan club members for life!
As a single parent of two small children, 4 year old twins, I had been struggling to find a safe way to introduce my children to the joys of riding. I had purchased matched Shelton mares and found that it was very difficult, and at time a bit unsafe, to have the kids, who knew absolutely nothing about riding, each on their own horse. I got to the point where I could manage pretty well if I led them from the ground, but never got to the point where I felt totally safe “ponying” them from my horse.
I finally decided I needed to do some “horse trading” and found Skittles on Christine Wakefield’s website. I called Christine and talked with her about my specific needs and thoughts, i.e., to sell one of my full-size horses and down-size to Skittles, a small ~13 hands mare, with the intentions of having my children ride double. Christine and I talked several times about what I was looking for, what I needed and what I planned to do. She ensured me that Skittles was a very well-behaved horse and she felt she would do great with my children. I ultimately purchased Skittles, based on just my phone conversations with Christine, and traveled down to Rouge River to drop off my full-size horse and pick up Skittles.
I am very happy to say that Skittles has turned out to be everything that Christine described, and MORE. My kids started out leading her (since they are so small, I put carrots in their pockets for Skittles to follow) to give them confidence and develop trust with her. They have now transitioned to riding double and it is a true joy to see them enthusiastic and excited to go riding. My son was terribly afraid of riding the ponies, and he has completely fallen in love with and totally trusts Skittles. We are planning our first trip to the mountains for later this summer, and I am certain that Skittles will be the rock-solid performer she has shown herself to be.
Finding the right horse can be a very difficult endeavor and is filled with a tremendous amount of uncertainty, apprehension, and potentially, misinformation and mistrust. I can honestly say that Christine Wakefield removed all of these issues and assisted me in getting the perfect horse for my children. I could not be happier. I have already talked to her about keeping an eye out for another “Skittles” as my kids will be moving to separate horses within the next two years.
Thank you Christine. I sincerely appreciate what you did for me and my children.
We can not say enough about Christine Wakefield at Precision Horse Training. We met her 2 years ago when she started training my grand daughters filly, Windancer. Christine was so very kind & encouraging to Kayla giving her lessons so she could learn how to ride Wind. Wind recieved A-1 care while at Precision and any questions were answered immediately.
Last year we chose to breed Wind to Skips Classic Gold standing at Precision. Again Chrisitine was very helpful, kind, enthusiastic, and professional with everything.
We have had Christine for training, lessons, breeding, and will now seek her expertise at marketing. Wind's beautiful colored 2015 filly which will help Kaylas college fund.
A very big thank you to Christine & Precision Training !
Christine is an amazing trainer/breeder! She has helped me tremendously with my mare! From starting her, to now breeding her, Christine has been there for it all, and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my horses!
Janet Engle with Kayla & Wendy Mainwaring and Windancer
I am overjoyed with the mare I purchased from Precision. Christine Wakefield was honest about every aspect of the transaction, helpful and she put an amazing foundation on my mare, Rapunzel.I am thankful to have come across her barn!

Hi Christine, just wanted to tell you how grateful I am that I bought Chance from you. I am totally in love with him. He is just awesome. He loves my granddaughter so much, and me too. He even licks her and nuzzles us. He is a joy to ride and he isn't lazy for me. I know that he will take care of us for the rest of his life and we will love him forever. For buying him site unseen he's a once in a lifetime kinda horse. Thank you again, your friend, Nance Brandenburg (Colorado)

I purchased Doc from Precision Training late Feb 2014 sight unseen with the exception of the video, I knew then that he was the horse for me however I thought to myself he looks to good to be true, well let me tell you he is so....much more than I expected exactly what Christine said he was and is, Doc is my saving Grace I explained my situation to Christine and She felt that Doc would be a good fit for me and WOW She was spot on.
I have waited for over 2 1/2-months prior to giving my word on Precision Training, my point is this, Christine is a Woman of Her word I am so thrilled that I trusted Her I love Doc so very much actually Doc is teaching me just like Christine said He would.
I would like to add that Wilfong Equine Services hauled Doc for me Sarah is a real sweetheart they were so professional real safe haulers great People to deal with, Christine recommended them, again no problem.
I have been so pleased with my new exceptional gelding "Turbo". I did a lot of research and horse hunting before I found Precision Horse Training and Christine. I found the entire experience delightful. There was never any pressure. Christine Wakefield is professional, friendly, patient, and most of all knows horses. Even after my purchase, Christine has been available to answer my questions and help the transition go smoothly. One of the most important things she told me was she builds long term relationships with her clients. I was sold on her talent, quality of care, and the quality of training my horse had been given. I would and will recommend Christine and Precision Horse Training over and over again. Thank you!
I cannot say enough good things about Christine Wakefield. She has been the most pleasant, hard working professional I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. She has gone above and beyond with everything she has done for me. I have never dealt with anyone else as motivated and enthusiastic and good at what she does. I will always use Precision Horse Training for my horses' training and marketing needs.

Since I have known Christine Wakefield and Heath, they have enriched my family’s life as horse trainers, breeders, and friends. We have had many horse changes over the past five years, but through each one Christine was there with her knowledge and support to help guide us through each sale, lesson, horse show, and purchase. She is my go to with any training questions, and I love that if it isn’t a quick “try this” she will drop everything to get you over to the barn and help you figure it out together. She is like no other trainer I have met, fully dedicating herself to each horse she works with and helping to build up her riders through education and positivity.
I met Christine years ago after spending over ten years away from horses, and never in my wildest dreams did I imagine the “horse” path I am on now thanks to her help and support. I look forward to many more years of friendship and successes with Christine and the Precision team!
My husband and I would highly recommend Precision Horse Training. We sent a nice 2 yo there for Christine to sell. Christine was very professional and honest and took good care of our horse and was able to sell him quickly. Christine is very knowledgeable, kept us updated concerning his progress and about interested buyers. We would definitely utilize the services of Precision Training in the future.

When you are looking for a horse you can trust with your kids and loved ones, Christine Wakefield provides the guidance and expertise to make the match work. I have confidence in her judgment and she knows how important it is to find "the" lifelong friend. Not only have I purchased 2 horses from Precision Training, I have also trusted Christine to sell two of my horse kids and find the right family for them. She is the best and very honest. I would not hesitate to buy sight unseen....again. You can also have confidence in the expertise of her staff as well. They know how to treat your horses like the precious friends that they are. Since I have never written a testimonial for anyone before, I hope this covers your concerns. If not, feel free to call me. I am now the proud owner of Christine's personal horse, Bob, and the BEST reining cow horse ever, Hailya.
After several years of looking for a horse that would fit our family we finally came across 'Precision Horse Training' on the internet. We decided to take a 5 hour drive to their stables and check out a horse they had for sale. The horse that we were interested in did not mesh with our lifestyle. Christine Wakefield did her upmost best to work with us. Her patience and integrity is something we will never forget. She pointed us toward another horse that we agreed to. We are so happy with our beautiful gelding. He is one of the greatest horses we could have hoped for. Precision Horse Training's integrity and business dealings are very rare in the horse world. We strongly recommend them for anyone who is tired of being sold a bill of goods through misrepresentation.

This is something that is definitely way over due!! Wyatt (Montana Silverado) and I just celebrated our second year Anniversary!! For not having a better cliché…time sure flies when you’re having fun!! Who would think… that I could get along so well with a four year old? When Christine saw us ride for the first time…she knew we would make a great team. I was just on the back side of a horrible life threatening horse accident…so choosing a new horse was very hard. I have a wonderful loving and supportive husband!! J Instead of not wanting me to ride anymore…he encouraged me to hunt for the perfect horse. Wyatt has been that and more…thanks to Christine’s caring heart and wisdom.
Having him home only two weeks… we went on a long trail ride with our friends and new 5 month old puppy running along. Now our Golden Retriever puppy (Chase) is 2 ½ and leading Wyatt around the pasture. He has been on lots of Trail Challenges (even won a few), working cattle and is now one of the official turn back horses for my husband’s “2” Cutting Clubs. If I’m in need of a break… there is always one or two of my friends ready and waiting to jump on his back. Wyatt is a horse that “ALL” my friends dream about having!! Everyone always compliments what a kind and sweet horse Wyatt is. They also want to know if I would ever consider …selling him? NOT!!! Who would think… a four year old could help to bring my confidence back??
Thanks Christine for bringing Wyatt from Montana and doing such an awesome job getting him ready for me!
Christine Wakefield and her family have been a great encouragement to us and we truly value their friendship and also consider it a huge blessing to have found them. This is definitely one huge and positive use of the Internet!!
If I live long enough to wear out Wyatt…I will definitely be coming back to Precision Training for another horse!! I can’t think of anyone else that could even come close to their honesty and integrity!!

I just had to write and say “thank you”. We have had B2 for almost a month now and I can’t tell you how much we love him already. He is such a sweet horse and so much fun to ride. Nothing bothers him…even when the chicken ran into his stall he barely budged. He stands nice and quiet to be saddled and I can jump on his back and just go. I feel so fortunate to have him. He has bonded with my other gelding and I am so happy that they have each other as companions now. I can’t wait to get him working cows…just waiting for better weather.
Again, thank you for such a wonderful horse. I have had bad experiences purchasing from other people and I am just thrilled that you guys are the real deal. If I decide to increase the family in the future, I’ll give you a call!
After over a year of searching for a novice youth horse for my daughters I accidentally stumbled upon a little APHA mare and took a chance and called Christine about her. I must admit it was a little scary to think about buying a horse that I'd never seen in person from people that I had never met personally. Christine Wakefield was absolutely 100% honest and helped me through the process sending me constant updates, and completely set my mind at ease. This was absolutely one of the greatest decision I have ever made. My girls just got home from their first APHA show and their new horse "Cami" was a rock star. She navigated an 8 year old through a very crowded warm up pen and took such good care of both of them. She is worth her weight in gold and I really have Christine to thank for doing such an amazing job training her and helping me ensure I found the right horse for my girls. I would recommend Precision Horse Training to anyone. Christine goes above and beyond and it is obvious how much she cares about her horses and her clients. Hopefully someday we will make it down to Oregon!!

After 10 months of looking for my perfect horse, traveling from Vancouver WA to Santa Rosa CA and many points between, I came upon an ad from Precision Training on a 10 year old all around horse. After speaking with Christine at great length she fully understood my specific needs and exactly the horse I was looking for. Having had a horrible horse accident with limitations to my riding she had 3 horses for me to look at. I was planning on a seasoned well behaved older horse to suit my needs, but she had a 3 year old she just knew I would love. I wasn't planning on buying a baby I would have to work with, but Christine in less than 30 days had Kenny started and assured me that he is exactly what I was needing. Kenny was everything she said he was and more. Just a baby, his personality and trusting demeanor fit my long list of expectations. If it would not have been for Christine and her excellent judgment and the time she took talking to me about my needs I would not have the best horse I have ever owned. Legally Approved aka "Kenny" has been to the Idaho wilderness on extreme trails and has packed out Elk from the treacherous mountains, in the show ring winning high point English horse, worked cows moving over 300 head into and out of the mountains, been an excellent babysitter and lesson horse and has now started competing in barrel racing. Kenny is everything I wanted and needed, and I would never have found my Kenny if it weren't for Christine and Precision Training.
I can not thank Christine and Precision Training enough for all that they have done for me. They are absolutely number one in my book and I will continue to go back to them time and time again for ANYTHING I may need, be it sale horses, breeding, lessons, you name it! They treat every horse in their barn like their own, and only provide the best of care, while always keeping you informed. I highly recommend Precision to ANYONE looking for the best! They are it hands down!
In 2008 my grandmas Paint mare had a foal and from the time she fell asleep in my lap I knew I wanted to keep her. So I trained her myself and I knew I wanted to do western pleasure with her. I took Windancer to Christine and she made it so easy for me and my horse to understand! Christine made me feel completely comfortable to ride a green horse and take control. I would recommend her to anyone, she is a wonderful trainer! :)
My relationship with Christine started when I bred my mare to her stallion Secret Class, Christine kept me up to date with everything going on during my mares time with her and she took excellent care of my mare and treated her as one of her own. When my mare foaled and there where complications Christine was there every step of the way to offer help and support. I then sent that foal to Christine as a 2 year old for training and she once again treated him as one of her own. Christine did an incredible job with my colt and he is a joy to ride each and every day. Christine is always available for questions and is a true Professional Horsewoman. My story with Christine started as a business relationship and has turned into a friendship that I value and treasure each and everyday. Thanks Christine for all that you have done over the years.
All i can say is 'WOW" when i was doing my search for my next horse, i read the testimonials on your website (which i will be adding to) but they were absolutely true, you are a standout in your profession, I have never met a trainer (and there have been many) that was so genuine and honest. I truly want to extend to you and Katrina my heartfelt gratitude. I am truly blessed to have met you. I promise to give Tilly my heart and the best care possible. Thanks again Donna

I asked Christine if I could write a testimonial for her website. Normally I have found it is the other way around, the client is asked to provide one….Please.
Our relationship with Christine began over a phone call regarding a lovely Palomino Mare that we were interested in. We drove 9 hours to meet with Christine and spent an hour with her. Thus began what I consider a wonderful friendship and mentorship for me. Not only has Christine worked tirelessly to help us find our forever horses ( my husband and I ) but she has worked with both of these young horses and trained them to the point where we as novices can enjoy them for many years to come.
Everyone associated with Precision Training personifies the term “We are happy to help with any questions or concerns you may have” most people say that but don’t follow thru. I personally experienced the most amazing acts of patience, kindness and knowledge from everyone working at Precision Training. I spent 10 days shadowing each and every member of Christine’s team, while my horse was in training. I was in training too and I Loved It! I learned so much, I thought the best way to learn is to jump in with both feet and work beside these wonderful people. That’s what I did and I can’t thank them enough for everything they taught me…. Rachel, Zack, Hannah, Carissa and of course, Christine.
No book in the world is going to replace hands on efforts and teachings by quality people such as this.
I look forward to many years of enjoying my beautiful Friesen!... yes a Friesen! (Which is another story altogether) that has been lovingly trained by Christine. I know that if I have a question, the answer is only an email away to the best trainer I had the good fortune to meet. Christine Wakefield. With sincerest thanks for your honesty, hard work and wonderful help.

About 2 years ago I was blessed with the opportunity to breed my mare for a 2011 foal. That filly arrived just in time as my husband and I endured heartbreak when we lost a child. I spent everyday with that filly and she was my world and I thought she would be forever. However I soon became pregnant again and my husband and I welcomed a baby boy into our lives. Although I loved my filly deeply she was constantly being put as some would say "on the back burner". She went from being an "ahead of the game" weanling to a filly that needed a job quickly. So I contacted Christine at Precision Horse Training and she made me feel like a priority and made me feel like I had some options with my filly. My filly spent not a day more then 30 days in training with Christine and she was a new girl. At that point I had to choose between bringing her home and potentially loosing some of what she had gained or face the option of selling her. That had never been an option until this point. But then, Christine assured me that the filly would be placed appropriately and in a good home and Christine would have it no other way. After all that we had gone thru I couldn't face another heartbreak...but it turned out to be a blessing, not just for my family but for a very deserving family up north who ended up purchasing my filly who now responds to "Buttons". Till this day I am in close contact personally with them, we share photos and videos as well as notes here and there. I couldn't be more happy with the way I was treated by Christine and her family and friends at Precision Horse Training and I would recommend them to not just anybody but everybody! Thank you sooo much Christine, I hope to need your services in the future again.

Although I worked for Precision Training, Christine also started my mustang mare under saddle for me. She did a fabulous job giving my mare a solid foundation in those all important first rides. She always made sure my mare understood and was ready before moving on, and returned to me a responsive, safe and happy horse. My first ride was so wonderful. I can't thank Christine enough!!!
Christine also started, and sold, my very bold, energetic Friesian Sporthorse mare under saddle, giving her the same great foundation that would make her ready to go any direction her new owners might wish to go. I have seen her work with a wide variety of horses with different temperaments, and different goals for their owners. I would never hesitate to send any of my horses to her for training. I only wish I still lived closer!

I have had my two Stallions and young filly in training with Precision Training spanning the last three years. Christine Wakefield is one of the most upstanding, honest, and good hearted people I have ever met. I have entrusted her with the care of my mares for breeding as well as the foals at their sides. Christine has always gone above and beyond to give my horses the best care possible. I wouldn't trust any other trainer on the face of the Earth to care for my horses as well as shape their young minds. Precision Training is a top notch facility and Christine Wakefield is one of the best horse trainers to come along in my life time.

My testimonial is going to be a little different, I have known Christine for a LONG time, one thing that I can say without a doubt is that Christine is a rarity in the industry, first and foremost she puts the safety and welfare of the horses before anything. Christine is honest and is truly concerned about finding the perfect partnership between horse and rider. I have had the privilege to work with her as well as know her on a personal level. Christine sold a breeding stock paint gelding for me about 7 years ago. I had the horse at another trainers and had made arrangements to go and pick the horse up to deliver it to Christine. We had discussed what had been done with this horse over the phone as well as what I needed to get out of him financially when he sold. I let Christine know the price that I was asking for this gelding and by the time that I got the horse up to her place she had seven buyers lined up to look at him. The first lady that came to look at him bought him, the only complaint that Christine had was she said "if I knew that he was THIS nice I would have had you ask more for him, he is worth much more than you told me that he is". I will continue to do business with Precision Training as I am always impressed with the character that of the Precision Training Staff possesses.
Precision Training has been an amazing experience for us! We took a young horse there to be evaluated, as we thought he wouldn't be good "show horse" material. Christine soon showed us the error of our ways! Not only did our 13 year old daughter win a few Championships in her age group in both English and Western performance classes, she took just about every Reserve Championship you can think of in both the 13 & under and Novice Youth categories - in his first year of showing! Reserve champion junior horse for both English and Western performance - driven by a 13 year old? How often do you see that happen? He's being finished in the bridle this year, and we anticipate great things. Thanks to Christine for helping to build Casey's confidence, and showing her the positive results of dedication, attitude and hard work. We've always known she was a winner, and with Christine's help, soon everyone else will know that too!
Thanks Christine and Heath!

I can't really explain all the good times I've had with Precision Training. I've been through a few trainers but Christine's been the best. I've NEVER felt like I couldn't ask her a question. If I had a question and she was doing something she would stop and listen to what I had to say. It doesn't feel like she's our trainer, it feels more like she's a part of our family. At every show we've gone to it's always been fun, and coming from a kid, that's really important. she's more of a show mom. My parents usually work the shows, so I'm usually on my own. Heath is always there to lend a hand, hold a horse, or just offer encouragement. So all I can say is there the best trainer and encourager there is.

Ok, Here goes...I met Christine and her staff last year when bringing my mare to her facility in Placerville for breeding. My husband and I were treated very special, I was amazed at their well maintained, and organized facility. I was also very happy how well they all took care of my mare "Mindy" she was groomed to perfection every day that she stayed there she was bedded down in clean shavings, and her stall was always cleaned out regular. Their facility was excellent and very clean, every one was so polite, and made us feel so comfortable. Christine always updated me on my mare during her stay. This is the best facility I have ever taken a mare to for breeding. I never worried about Mindy's care, she looked beautiful and well groomed when I picked her up.We were more than satisfied with everything about the facility, and especially Christine, she is an amazing person, and an excellent trainer. We had a wonderful positive experience dealing with Precision Training. I would refer any one to their new facility in Oregon for breeding and/or training.
I have known Christine Wakefield for over seven years. When I first met her I was looking for a trainer for both me and my horse. Christine is the “go to” person when I have questions about anything horse related. She is just a phone call or email away – and is very prompt about getting back to you. When my horse injured himself and needed to be rehabilitated, I turned to Christine and her staff at Precision Training. He received excellent care and lots of attention, and is doing great. It is very reassuring to me to know a person like Christine – no matter what, she will be there to help me if I ever need help.
I had the pleasure of meeting Christine several years ago when I was looking to breed my mare to a paint stallion that was standing at her facility. When we arrived, she showed us the stallion we were interested in but then introduced us to another one who was living right next to a mare and she told us that he had a wonderful disposition, was athletic and smart. We chose that one and were delighted with the foal we got, who carried that sire’s disposition. When she moved to her next place, we were lucky enough to be literally five minutes away and when we decided to start our Arabian gelding, we took him up to her. She did a wonderful job with him and when we were having trouble loading him in our trailer, she popped right over and loaded him up and took him back to her place to teach him to load more easily. Christine was there for us when we were leaving on vacation but had a mare that was due to foal. We took our very pregnant mare up to her place, where she monitored her 24/7 and helped her foal out. When my mare was having difficulties after foaling, she called her vet who came right out to help. She has been there for us when we have any questions, problems or need advice. She is always readily available and happy to help. She also made a video of my Arabian gelding and put him on a website for us. Her help on the ranch were also super nice and helpful and we looked forward to their annual Christmas parties. Now that she has packed up and moved to Rogue River , we are devastated! It makes us want to move up there as well. I highly recommend her facility and staff to anyone, whether it be to stand a stallion, train a young horse or learn to show, she can do it all! We really miss her!
