Tom Forehand – Western Pleasure

Tom Forehand – Western Pleasure

Tom is an accomplished performance horse trainer based at Good Reception Ranch. His favorite performance classes are western pleasure futurities and western riding. Tom offers full training and starting of horses as well as a lesson program. He enjoys guiding adults and teens through the process of training their horses and campaigning at local and national AQHA shows.

Tom has had multiple Congress finalists and futurity winners, many World show qualifiers, as well as World and Reserve APHA World Champions.

While Tom takes the business of training horses seriously, he knows how stressful the prospect of showing is for amateur riders. His ever-present sense of humor helps his students stay relaxed, enjoy themselves, and remember what they have learned–even in the show ring!

Tom is married to Kelly Pachello-Forehand and together they have two beautiful kids, Ross and Roxie.

Tom is currently accepting horses and their people into his training and lesson program. Contact him at or (303) 775-1072.  You can also schedule online here.
