Though what we do often is a result of what we are, the work that is done at VHF has no reflection on what I do but rather what God is doing inside me in order to help others... That being said, there are a few who question my abilities and credentials. I welcome this, so... I have had the privledge of working with some pretty amazing people in my journey and to those interested, here are a few...
Ray Hunt, Buck Brannaman, Monty Roberts, John Lyons, Pat Parelli, Curt Pate, Buster McLaury,Tom Curtin, Lee Smith, Richard Shrake, Bryan Neubert, Leslie Desmond, Kerry Kuhn, Aaron England, Anna Twinney, Stacey Westfall, Jack Leiser, Brent Graef, Cesar Millan, some others less known and my dear friend, Jesus Christ ... this does not include the invaluable lessons that have come from the people and horses that have blessed this journey for me, for they really have provided this program with it's heart.
" Kathy King Raedeke is a rare find of true horsemanship combined with a powerful love for Jesus.Her unique ability to help people see the inside of the horse through her faith in Christ, is simply amazing ! Kathy is in it for the horse and with that has an incredible life experience of learning, growing and overcoming..." Kerry Kuhn Practical Horsemanship
" I have known Kathy King Raedeke for 14 years and in those years she has not only become a wonderful friend to me and my family, but a remarkable student of the Horse. She has worked hard with me as a student as well as with many other world renowned horsemanship clinicians. Kathy has become masterful with horses. She has an excellent business sense as she has successfully been my area coordinator for those 14 years.She is a person you can count on to get things accomplished and her love for the Lord and putting Him first in her life is, unsurpassed. I am proud to have Kathy as a part of my team and would feel that she would be an asset to anyone who brings her on board as a horsemanship coach or in business."
" In Kathy there is a lightness that naturally shines upon the horses as she touches each one individually... With joy, she approaches the horse as one seeking out their knowledge with a view to enhance natural talents. Through her abilities, the horses recognize a horsewoman who has their best interest at heart."
