Deven Childers provides a training method where foundation and the leadership of the rider are key; after all, if you aren't the leader, your horse will be. 

Through private lessons, full training, clinics or demonstrations, Deven will help you reach your goals.  Utilizing his techniques as a Certified John Lyons Trainer as well as additional methods that he has developed, you will gain confidence in your working relationship with your horse and your abilities. 

Please read on for more information about Deven and his wife Michele; and always remember the two most important parts of being a rider:

    1)  Be safe!
    2)  Have fun!

If not, why bother :)

News from Deven and Michele:

2014...what a year!  So much going on this year.  Due to a death in the family we didn't plan any clinics.  But as summer comes to a close we are getting our feet back under us.  If any of our clients are interested in a clinic please let us know and we will put one together right away!

We've taken the plunge into Reining full-speed.  Everyone always has something new to learn including us...the trainer has a trainer!  We are working with a World Class Reining Champion and look forward to a fun and challenging opportunities in the Reining world.

We have made some changes by bringing in a couple of new horses and have found homes for a few others.  We've had a limited number of horses in training this year and have a few more coming in soon.  We are all feeling the pinch of the price of hay and hope that the drought won't bring higher prices still.

A huge THANK YOU to our loyal clients and friends who have been so supportive through this tough year.

About our home...

Our facility, ReinMaker Ranch, is located in the Sacramento valley in the community of Rio Linda, CA

Deven and his wife Michele have owned and trained their own horses for over 20 years.  Looking for more formalized training, Deven went to Colorado in 2005 to attend the John Lyons Certification Program and became a John Lyons Certified Trainer in October of '05.
