Montana Center for Horsemanship


Robert Chesterfield has been an Instructor at the Montana Center for Horsemanship and taught natural horsemanship classes at Montana Western since 2016. A graduate of the program, Robert is able to understand the student’s perspective, giving him the ability to explain concepts in a way students can truly comprehend.

Before teaching at Montana Western, Robert worked on ranches and started colts in Montana, and followed the show circuit with a cutting horse trainer all over the Southwest. The experience he gained has shown him the importance of putting the horse first and learning to change your technique to help your horse.

Robert’s goal in the classes is to help build a strong working relationship between students and their horses, allowing them to succeed in their future equine careers.
