Gerald is a very talented young trainer, who did a phenomenal job training our filly. He is very quiet and patient with both horse and owner. She was going well enough within 60 days for me to continue her training, as a result of her time spent with Gerald and the folks at Olson Performance Horses. In a short time he puts a solid base on the horses with his quiet demeanor. ~~ Christina Ecker

My name is Bobbi Theisen and I have been showing Quarter Horses in the Hunter under Saddle classes for the past 20 years. I purchased a 3 yr. old gelding by The Last Captive from Linda Ketter in April of 2006. He had been in training with Jerry Olson for about six months. I was very pleased with the foundation that Jerry had put on him. When I started riding him, he was very quiet and trusting, which is important for the young thoroughbred-blooded horses. I could tell that Jerry had instilled respect, but with a very soft touch. I would definitely send another young horse to Jerry. He is one of those hard to find guys that you can trust to start a young horse without scaring them, or being too hard on them. Thanks so much Jerry! ~~ ( Bobbi Theisen has competed successfully both at the Congress and World Show on numerous occasions. )


I wanted to take a moment and say " Thank you " from the bottom of my heart, and tell you how pleased I am with the progress Addy has made in your training program. I had been searching long and hard for a training facility. One who takes pride in their training. One who is knowledgeable, not only with how to train a horse but one who would treat my horse as their own. Also one who pays attention to the smallest detail. I have found tthese things with you and your facility. I feel very comfortable in recommending you to friends, and acquaintances, or any one in the horse industry. I am so pleased with the outcome of Addy's show season for 2007. As I said before I want to take a moment and thank each and everyone of you at Olson Performance Horses. You make an incredible team!!! Without all the hard work, determination, and perseverance you project together, the job could not get done. You give it your all and I am so appreciative of it. I look forward to the coming show season for 2008. ~~ Robin Brewer ( Owner of 'Dirty Lil Bench Mark' Ima Benchmark/Larrys Snipette - RMQHA 2007 Golden Opportunity Futurity LL Champion and 2007 NSBA Futurity Champion. )
