I am David Anderson, I have a wide verity of equine knowledge and experience. I am a graduate of MSU-Moorhead 08′ and North Dakota State University (NDSU) 10′ in Fargo, ND. While at MSU-Moorhead I received a bachelor of science degree in exercise science and a minor in coaching. At NDSU I received a bachelor of science degree in equine studies and a minor in therapeutic horsemanship. During my time at NDSU I took many horse related classes like anatomy, physiology, colt starting, horsemanship, judging, and an internship with John Hovde in Williston, ND to name a few classes. While working on the ranch for my internship, I learned a wide verity of horse knowledge including colt starting, lesson, training, clinic, cow work, and other ranch work. While at NDSU I also participated in the NDSU horseman’s association helping put on shows, clinics, and camps. After graduating from NDSU I became professional association or Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) certified instructor in June of 2011 and started my own business. I have also worked and volunteered at Riding On Angles Wings (ROAW) near Felton, MN a PATH certified center. During the years of 2008-2011 working with many different types of riders. I have worked with other riding programs after working with ROAW helping them to get their programs started. I was also a three year volunteer coach of the Morris area FFA equine judging team. I became a certified North Dakota 4-H judge in 2015. I have won many high point awards competing in gaming events and pleasure events. Winning many year end awards as a member of the Waska Riders Saddle Club in Glenwood, MN and the Shamrock Heist saddle club in Benson, MN. I have been the president of the Waska Riders saddle club the years of 13′ and 15′. I have been on the education committee since 2010.
When I’m not working with horses I work at Prairie Community Services (PCS), working with many different people.
I am always trying to learn something new whether its working with troubled youth or troubled horses. There are a lot of similarities. I hope I can teach you something new and many you can teach me something as well.
Thank you and let me know if you have any questions or would just like to talk horse.
