NEW THIS YEAR: Horse trainer Steve Lantvit will make his first visit to the Farm Progress Show this year.

Horse training demos return to Farm Progress Show

Lifelong horseman Steve Lantvit will present demonstrations daily at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Horse training demonstrations are back at the Farm Progress Show — this time with a new face. Steve Lantvit, a lifelong horseman and equine enthusiast, is bringing his horse training techniques to this year’s show in Decatur, Ill., Aug. 27-29.

Lantvit has decades of experience and knowledge across multiple disciplines. He’s used those experiences to build a program based on trust, gentle hands and a true partnership, regardless of the rider’s discipline or experience.

Demonstrations will be daily at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Lot 1009 in the northeast corner of the show grounds.

Lantvit’s teaching style provides his students with the “why” and not just the “how,” giving them the necessary tools to be successful on their own. His techniques are applied on the trail, at the ranch or in the show pen, with an emphasis on creating a light horse through correct timing and clear communication. Lantvit strives to help fellow riders achieve their dreams, overcome obstacles, and challenge themselves to do the best by the horse and for the horse.

Traveling across the U.S. sharing his knowledge and passion for horses, Lantvit enjoys conducting clinics and presenting at expos. He brings his teachings right into your home with his TV series, “Sure in the Saddle,” airing on RFD-TV on Thursdays at 3 and 11 p.m. Eastern time.
