Hello, I’m Holly Shanahan, owner of Lazy S 6 Equine, LLC. a fifth generation of the Verde Valley. I was fortunate in the spring of 2017 to get the brand that my grandfather designed in the 1950’s back in the family and changed the business name from Shanahan Equine Services (est. 2007) to Lazy S 6 Equine.
I believe in building a solid relationship with the horse on the ground first. I incorporate a variety of horsemanship skills and methods into my training as well as exposing horses to every environment possible. I believe every horse is on their own schedule and adjust their training accordingly. I am not a one method for every horse type. I strongly believe every horse should be treated and trained using a method that suits THEM best on THEIR timeline. I don't believe in pushing a horse until they are physically or mentally ready. I want my horses to be sound and usable for a lifetime. My motto is ‘If you don’t trust your horse, they will not trust you.’ My children add a great new element to my training process. When they leave here they're very well rounded.
I offer a variety of equine related services including equine tune up & behavioral correction, confidence building, 'back in the saddle' training sessions with physical therapist, foal foundation, obstacle, trail and gymkhana basics, ranch day work, clinics and demos, equine consignment and sales, new horse matching (if you're a client and you've committed to riding with me so I can make an accurate search and match), video marketing, event promotion and much more....... I am not a performance trainer. I will make you a well rounded horse that just about anyone can ride. I'm in it for the best interest and well being of the horse.
