Corey Rogers is the owner of Corey Rogers Performance Horses, a Performance-based training facility located in Morriston, FL. Corey's roots are Reining, and Cow horse work. However, he came up through the ranks training wild mustangs for national competitions, in addition to colt starting competitions. His training style is based on pressure and release, and common sense horsemanship that comes from his background working for several large Cattle Operations. Working cattle on a 50,000 acre ranch where most of the work was done horseback, has molded Corey's work ethic. He's pretty good with a rope too! Corey and his wife, Whitney offer affordable clinics in a covered arena, that teach basic to advanced horsemanship. They currently have both recreational clients, and a core group that show and win with the NRHA. Private lessons are complimentary if you have a horse in training, or available for a fee if your horse is not in training. One of Corey's other gifts is his ability to work with his customers, in a way that works for them. His communication techniques keep folks laughing, but keeps them striving for more. Corey keeps the horses happy, his customers having fun, and teaches them to enjoy their horses in a whole new way.
