Martin Black

Martin Black has spent his lifetime ranching, riding, training horses, starting young horses, working cows and roping in the Great Basin tradition. Martin grew up on the Ace Black family ranch in Bruneau, Idaho where he was influenced by his father, grandfather Albert and uncle Paul Black. After school he worked on ranches in Idaho, Nevada, and California, working with top horsemen and bridlemen, Charlie and Bill Van Norman, Ray Hunt, Gene Lewis, Melvin Jones, Tom Dorrance and Tom Marvel along the way. Growing up working cows from horseback, Martin had a unique opportunity to develop a great sense of feel for both the horse and cattle. When he was managing the Wine Cup/ Gamble ranches throughout his twenties, Tom Dorrance would come to the ranch and help the cowboys start the young horses and prepare their show-horses for the County Fair. During this time, Martin would realise the importance of timing for the horse. As he continued in his pursuit of excellence he would find the balance that would bring it all together. Martin Black is willing to share his knowledge and experience with anyone serious about improving themselves and their horses. He has helped everyone from recreational riders to top horse-trainers in cutting, reining and racing, cowboys, cow-horse competitors, ropers, show-jumpers, and eventers. Everyone can improve their horsemanship by learning how to be more effective presenting themselves to their horse and learning to understand how the horse perceives them as an individual. Martin will build confidence in the horse and rider and take you to the next level, whatever that might be.
