I spent a solid 10yrs working with wild horses. Yes the wild horses that have roamed freely across the American West landscape for thousands of years. I wanted to know how the operated, how they think, how did they survive and most importantly how is it possible that they can be gentled and trained to live and work with man?
This journey of discovering to tame the Wild horse led me on a journey of my own, an adventure of learning. I soon discovered that I had to do some “gentling and training” on myself if I wanted to access the internal, the spiritual and truthful side of the horse, I had to learn and experience these things for myself.

West Taylor spent the first 25 years of his adult life pursuing the success in life he believed only existed by getting things done, by building a business, by living within an image and structure that society told him to be. Have the right job, live in the right neighborhood, drive the right vehicles, do all the things to meet society’s definition of happiness. After 25 years of trying to meet the outside world’s perceived expectations of himself West finally crashed his life, lost his business, all of his money and the lifestyle toys that came along with “keeping up with the Joneses.”
He found himself starting life over again at the age of 40, he moved his family back home to his grandfather’s ranch to regroup and begin his new life.
“I don’t know what I want to do, I just know it has something to do with horses” West told his wife Kami, This is the base of the next 15 years of his life. Learning and understanding how to train and work with Wild Horses. During this newly created version of himself West began to find the elusive happiness in life he was searching for, he found it in the wild horses. He found the value of patience, taking life at a much slower pace, he learned about himself and how to create an internal sense of safety for his life. West and his wife Kami of 35 years now host retreats for horse owners and individuals to experience his science based Transformation Method at their ranch property in Southern Utah.
West is now known as an expert in his industry in proper training and handling of all breeds of horses. His scientific research has led him to developing his own training method known as West Taylor’s Science Based Horsemanship and life lessons learned from horses.
