Josh Guin grew up in Natchitoches, Louisiana, where he developed a love for horses starting at a young age. His first horse experience was at 8 years old. Josh owned an old gelding named Dan. It was then that Josh began to observe the relationship between horse and human.

Since then Josh has never stopped being a student of the horse. He decided to invest his life into understanding horse behavior, and developing a great way to influence and train horses. He moved to Texas to further his career, and to get a full understanding of horses. He attended Texas A&M – Commerce where he earned a bachelor’s in Agricultural Science and learned all about horse nutrition, growth and development, and training. Included in his curriculum were equine management, nutrition and advanced training.

Josh’s approach to training horses is based on the horse’s natural tendencies and behavior. He has an amazing ability to understand horses. That skill has helped Josh in developing natural methods of training based on horse instincts and psychology. His method of training is based on original TRUE Success method. TRUE is an acronym representing the four steps in achieving success with any horse. These steps are: Trust, Respect, Unity, and Expectations. This method works. By using natural methods, Josh is able to mold the horse into a willing and well trained partner.
