Isaac started a colt for me a couple of years ago and put a good foundation on him. When I got him back he was extremely gentle and is now a great all around ranch horse. The Waddington Bros. are hands down the best trainers I have sent a horse to.
I purchased a finished ranch horse from them 2 years ago. Due to knee replacment he wasn't ridden for two years. Last fall I had someone ride him for me. I figured at 70 I had better let someone else check him out first. He rode him one day and the next day his grade school age kids were riding him. He so be good to go for me this spring. From halter breaking to a finished ranch horse you will not be disappointed with the work they do.

Excellent training and horsemanship. Honest people who know their horses and stand behind them. I highly recommend them for quality horses.
We have been working together for several years now and my colts come home with a sound mind and ready to work. I'm expecting foals from both stallions in May 2022. Can't wait to see these! The Waddington Bros. care about my horses in their care and have kept me informed of my colts progress with them."
Eli trained my three year old gelding for sixty days. I had imprinted this colt at birth but had not handled him since bringing him to Eli. I am extremely pleased with the job he did. The horse is very well started. All four feet can be lifted. And he is quiet to be around. Angela made a video with Eli riding him to help to try and sale him. She was extremely nice to work with. Isaac also trained another 3 year old filly. He also did an excellent job. This filly I intend to keep for myself. I'm 64 years young and I feel completely safe on her. Overall these people were great. I feel they were always open and honest with me. I have more horses that will be needing training and I plan to have the Waddingtons train them also."
I have purchased several horses from tiptop horsemanship, and I have never been dissatisfied, when you buy a horse from them you won't be disappointed.I have been riding horses for over sixty years now, and I know a good horse when I ride one.

Very honest people and try to match you to a horse for you needs and ability. I would highly recommend if you are looking for a good horse.
We bought MY NAME IS JIM DANDY in January of 2021. We only saw a few pictures of him as a weanling but there was something about him that caught our eye. We had him shipped here to Colorado and from the moment he got out of the trailer he was quiet, gentle, willing to please, and wanted to be your buddy. We turned him out last summer to grow up and brought him up in the fall of 2021. He was just as kind as when we turned him out and was easy to catch and handle. We have saddled him 3-4 times now and he hasn’t offered to pitch once. He accepted the saddle like an old broke horse and lunged in easy, smooth circles. He is very smart and good-looking. We are looking forward to starting him under saddle this spring! Overall, we had a great experience with Tip Top Horsemanship and would do business again with them in the future.
We bought a horse from Eli and Isaac a few years ago. Before the sale they were more than accommodating to my requests for pictures and information. At the sale they were just as helpful, allowing me to ride Clifford ahead of time. We appreciated their honesty. The horse has been more than we expected and we put our young children on him the first time we had him out! When we are in need of another horse, we will not hesitate to reach out to the Waddington family as we know they have quality animals.
We absolutely love our horse Peppy that we bought that was trained by Eli and Angela. We rustic camp and trail ride and she has been awesome thru any situation we have had her in! We have let her sit a few times and when we got back on her, it was like we never stopped. She hands down is great! We would highly recommend them for there excellent training and horsemanship!
I brought my 2 year old gelding, Cadet, to TipTop Horsemanship for 60 days. They did a very nice job starting Cadet and they put a really good foundation on him. I really appreciated the miles and the time Cadet got outside of the arena too. Highly recommend TipTip Horsemanship!
I purchased a mare from them about a year ago and she has worked out really well for me. As a college student I don’t get to ride much but when I come home after months of not riding, I can hop right on her and she rides out. Very honest, hard working and genuine people to do business with.
I bought “Pal” from TipTop and I couldn’t be happier with the purchase. He has the most personality of any horse I met! He was trained, treated, and cared for better then anything I could have ever asked for and Eli is one of the best people to buy a horse from because he truly cares about his horses and animals. I have nothing but the best wishes and best experiences with him and his family, if I had the need I’d do it again and again.
