GRAYCHECK PERFORMANCE HORSES
Stephen's desire to have a reputation as a quality horseman began when he moved to Montana and started working on horse and cattle ranches. That introduction to the tradition and lifestyle of a horseman instantly had him hooked. Knowledgeable, experienced, and reputable buckaroo-style mentors took him in and he hasn't stopped since.
Learning by working as a ranch hand and starting colts across Central and Western Montana is how Stephen learned how important it is to build a positive and willing relationship with your horse. Since his start, Stephen has trained with and under distinguished horsemen of multiple disciplines, from FEI level show-jumpers, to NRHA world champion reiners. Combining the methods and knowledge he's gathered over the years, Stephen takes an approach of leadership and respect to his horses. He knows a horse looks to the rider for guidance both mentally and physically, but also realizes the importance of keeping their mind alive. If done properly, your confident leadership will reflect onto them, and you respecting their mind by giving when they give will keep them willing. The key components in the Lazy S Horsemanship program are: Feel, consistency, and positivity in the mind.

"A thoughtful teacher, a thorough instructor, a gentle hand, a firm guide, a rational yet fearless showman, the greatest compliment that I think could ever be given to someone who works with horses, is to be thought of as a Horseman." - article by Becky Hanson, Pacific Coast Journal
"No one will follow a timid and inadequate leader. Leadership comes from confidence, and confidence comes from knowledge. You must arm yourself with knowledge to be the leader your horse needs you to be."
"Service above self: Stephen Graycheck is humble and skilled, much like other guys we know well. A true facilitator and a member of the tribe. Competing across the country, representing Waypoint Ranch and wearing the 387th Expeditionary Logistics Readiness Squadron troops patch on his sleeve in his competitions, he is raising awareness of how horsemanship is giving back to our nation's veterans. Proud of the work he does and also excited to see where he goes next!!!"
