"Frank, I feel led to communicate these words to you....THANK YOU!!!! You surely can not know the depth that you have changed my life and my whole life has always been about horses. Lately I'm using your 7 steps on 3-4 horses a day that I ride and on some unbroken 4 year olds also and these horses are bonding with me to the point that they even like to be ridden and look forward to our next daily adventure with a passion that could only be from me giving back to them and keeping them desiring more.
Part of each day there are 2 other trainers here who don't use really any natural skills or any bonding techniques and sometimes they may even be annoyed by my taking the time to "access" my mount or bond with them, and I watch the way these horses are with them as compared to me and it's totally a different animal! Now I'm not saying that I'm the next horse guru, but I do know that a huge door has been opened as to the way I see things. If I could help to share this with other people, that would be incredible, but you know to just be able to give to the horse, to forge this bond with each animal individually, well that is enough. Thanks to you Frank, may God bless you and may you have a wonderful birthday!"
"I used to ride with a tinge of fear and uncertainty. Horses knew it. Now, I ride every single horse 'in confidence,' and we both revel in our evolved time together. The difference is night and day. Both of us feel so much better for it. A masterful set of quite simple exercises. Thank you Frank Bell!"

“Frank’s 7-steps completely changed my understanding of not only my horse, but all horses. The sequence and response of using his system is truly masterful.”
~ Bill Dapper, TN
“I came away with more new tools under my belt in 2 days than attending several 7-day natural horsemanship clinics. I’m amazed… Frank is a natural teacher.”
~ Cathy Dayton, WA
"I had no idea of the kind of relationship I could have with my horse until I met Frank Bell. He taught me and my horse how to be friends. I had no idea how much of the equation I was missing. Thank you for opening those doors Frank Bell."

"Frank spent about 30 hours working with Raphael and me. It was a complete learning experience for both of us. It is a gentling process, not rough or abusive. I would recommend Frank over any other trainer."
~ Jerry Leaser, Palmer Lake, CO
"Never in my wildest dreams would I have believed that my draft horse could be ridden with only a piece of bailing twine. He is a totally different horse today. Before your clinic, he would stand in his stall and threaten anyone that would come near him. Now he nickers when we come into the barn and enjoys all the attention we can now give him. Every day we go through all 7 steps so that his confidence and mine grow. He is a totally new horse!"
~ Heidi Kucera, Atherton, CA
"My horse (Arabes) bucked so hard she broke my pelvis. In a short time, Frank had my wife, Linda, (a novice) riding Arabes confidently and without incident."
~ Bob Claymier, Marshall, VA
"I had several horses giving me fits. One had thrown a competent horsewoman and hurt her badly. The other went to her knees when mounted, terrified. Frank took each of these horses for a week, then shared his system with my daughter, Lynn. He was very adamant that Lynn fully understand just how to help these horses before taking them home. Frank accomplished more in a week than most trainers would in several months. Most importantly, he seems to genuinely care for the horse's well-being."
~ Sylvia McDonald, Larkspur, CO
"I watched Frank work with three troubled horses over a period of three hours. I then went home to try the Bell system on my difficult quarter horse, Amos. Amos had mystified the finest trainers in the Northwest and we were seemingly at a dead end. When my wife drove up and saw me riding Amos bareback using merely a halter and lead rope, she was wide-eyed with disbelief. We both attended Frank's clinic the following three days, and a whole new world opened to us. Amos now happily carries my 13 year old daughter in local shows. They proudly collect ribbons as true partners. Frank literally changed our lives. I am now able to help other distressed horse people."
