Versatile Horsemanship


"Horses are our passion and we strive to maintain their integrity by continuing our educations, in the areas of horsemanship, colt starting, and ranch horse versatility, and sharing what we have learned with those willing to learn as well."

Teaching and training versatile horses...

Elliot and Caitie Holtzman

work together as a team to incorporate their formal and informal equine educations and experiences into their operation each day. Both are working to hone their skills and to learn more as they continue to study under experienced horsemen in the industry as often as they can. Elliot is a 2014 Legacy of Legends scholarship recipient. Caitie attended North Central Texas College to study Equine Science and Management and went on to gain a Bachelor and Master of Science in Agriculture with a focus on Equine and Ag Education.
A combined foundation of horsemanship, experience, and education is what their operation is based upon.
Both have competed in Extreme Mustang Makeovers and recently began competing in Ranch Horse Versatility events in North Texas. Elliot recently began competing in annual colt starting competitions.

In an industry that has become so discipline-specialized, Versatile Horsemanship, LLC is a low-key horse training operation with the goal of teaching and training horses for versatility. Owned and operated by Elliot and Caitie Holtzman, together they are constantly striving to further their educations and improve their own handiness about horses. 

VH, LLC works one-on-one with clients and their horses to help them to achieve their goals and to enable them to successfully and safely handle and ride their own horses and improve their own horsemanship. The facility and grounds are safe, simple, and polished with plenty of room to offer ample turn out to help keep horses in sound both mentally and physically. 

We offer halter breaking, colt starting, tune ups, trouble shooting, horsemanship clinics, lessons on your horse, events and competitions, and occasionally horses for sale. We most often work with stock-type and ranch horse versatility, however all breeds and any discipline are welcome here.
