montana center for horsemanship • dillon, montana

The not-for-profit Montana Center for Horsemanship (MCH) is the first and only educational equine center in the United States to focus exclusively on ‘Natural Horsemanship’—a philosophy that’s based on understanding horse behavior, and bridging the gap between natural and conventional training to provide a stronger, more rewarding foundation for riding, working, and interacting.

Thanks to a unique partnership between MCH and the University of Montana Western, professional and amateur horsemen and horsewomen—as well as educators, scientists, and researchers—are brought together to improve and expand horsemanship in the broadest sense of the word.

MCH, a non-profit 501c3 corporation, is guided by several fundamental objectives: to help individuals achieve personal and professional success in the equine industry; to enable horses to learn more effectively and find more ‘horse happiness’ through a specialized program; to energize the community as a whole; and to perpetuate a fundamental tradition of the American West.
