Our Philosophy

Customized training, coaching, lessons and clinics

At Epis Performance Horses, Loris focuses his training program on mental and physical preparation through consistency. He creates a balance for each horse through his ever evolving skill and technique. The horses in his program are considered athletes and are treated as such. We fuel all our horses with our custom performance feed made by our phenomenal sponsor "Brooks Performance Feeds". All horses
are placed into our training program based upon clients goals and their horses level of ability. Loris truly believes being competitively successful in the show pen is not only about having the best trained horse, but also having the best prepared horse.
