With well over a decade of experience caring for a growing herd of horses, Pinto has developed a sense of timing, patience and feel for horses that is not easy to come by.
He considers himself a student of the horse. His timing and feel is completely based on the individual needs of the horse that he’s working with and change for each horse, as required. This has led to a passion for helping horses to understand better what their owners are expecting of them.
Pinto and Christa have worked together with many of Rock’n Star Ranch’s own horses, as well as taking on others’ horses who have developed unwanted habits and behaviors. He has greatly improved the willingness and attitude of the horses he’s worked with, as well as furthering the owner’s understanding of the origin of the behavior and how to help their horse to avoid repeating these unwanted actions in the future.
Pinto has continued his own education through spending time with and learning from master horsemen/horsewomen such as Daryl Gibb, Miles Kingdon, Mark Rashid and Stefanie Travers. He also spends time honing his skills with his own two Appaloosa horses, Vega and Ginger.
By working together with the owners, Pinto is able to create the lasting changes that will ultimately improve the relationship and make the partnership flourish, as well as giving the owner tools to help problem solve on their own, should further challenges arise.
Outside of the ranch life, Pinto has a Bachelors Degree from the University of British Colombia in Philosophy and performs and writes as a professional musician. He has been playing guitar for most of his life and has developed incredible skill with it. He has been playing guitar professionally for various rock bands as well as writing and performing some country music as well. One of his most recent musical projects has been writing and performing the musical score featured in many of Christa Miremadi’s Horsemanship YouTube videos!
Pinto’s passion for both horses and music has brought him to where he is today and has led him to want to share his skills and passion with others, but most of all to help the horses he loves to find the boundaries, comfort, security, affection and peace that they are seeking.
Pinto believes that time spent with horses should be enjoyed by both human and horse, and although the horses must be willing and available to follow direction, they should also be treated as valued partners and not as slaves.
