No Secrets – Show Clinic  

Become a confident, knowledgeable showman

Showing horses can be nerve racking for those who don’t have much experience with it. It can sometimes create so much stress for some, they don’t even bother trying because of how overwhelming it can feel.

At River Lane Ranch our trainers and owners understand how this feels and want to share all their knowledge about showing horses and more!

Did you know there are several trade secrets that many trainers/owners won’t tell you? Are you aware of exactly what the judge will be looking for, regardless of what breed your showing? Do you understand feed and nutrition and why and what horses should eat to look and feel their best? How about grooming? It doesn’t just happen the day before the show.

For those of you who want to show off your Gypsies to the world and feel confident and knowledgeable at your next show ..this No Secrets Show Clinic is designed just for you!

Come have a fun, informative weekend at River Lane Ranch!

In 2017 Rich showed his first Gypsy Vanner at the Feather Horse Classic Nationals and has been hooked ever since! If you want to win at Halter and show off your horse so only the judge can see you, Rich can teach you how to get it done.

Chris Miller

We would need an entire page to list all of accomplishments of Chris Miller but to list just a few …

After College Chris began working as the trainers assistant for Carol Rose Quarter Horses, the AQHA’s All-time leading Breeder of Performance Horses located in Gainesville Texas. During Chris’ 6 months in Texas he took advantage of the opportunity to ride and train with the likes of Michael Berg, Bobby Lewis, Carol Metcalfe, Tim McQuay & Tom Chown.

In 1999, Chris began which would turn out to be 3+ years as head trainer for Gerold Dautzenburg owner/operator of Long View Ranch (LV Ranch) in Wilhelmsburg Austria. LV Ranch is a world-class show, training and breeding facility.While there, Chris trained and campaigned prospects, fine-tuned finish horses as well as coached youth and amateurs at home and at shows throughout Europe. Chris was fortunate enough to coach and compete in 3 European Championship Quarterhorse shows held annually in Kreuth Germany.

Chris Miller has been training and showing Gypsy Vanners for River Lane Ranch since 2017. He quickly realized how unique the breed is and that it would require a different type of training. Adapting some of his own methods and creating some new ones specific for the Gypsy Vanner, Chris is proving that Gypsies are capable of anything!
