Kip Fladland Horsemanship
Growing up on his grandfather’s ranch in Montana, horses have been an integral part of Kip’s life from the beginning. After graduating college with a Bachelor’s of Science degree with an emphasis in livestock production management, Kip went to work on several large cattle ranches. It was during this time that he first met Buck Brannaman. Buck showed Kip that the horse had more to offer if you presented the information to him so he could understand it.
Since 2003, Kip has been bringing the knowledge and experience he gained while working for Buck to the horses he rides for the public. His clients come from all over the country and include everything from Quarter Horses and Warmbloods to mules and draft horses.
