Foundation to Finish with Phil Haugen
Nearly 2,000 horses and 30 years of training experience has built a solid foundation for proven success in the Haugen Horsemanship program. Raised in western North Dakota, Phil Haugen grew up knowing the value of a well-trained equine partner and the importance of creating a foundation built on trust and respect. Phil has built his horsemanship and training program that focuses on developing your equine partner to its fullest potential, while learning how to build the knowledge and foundation that is necessary for a horse to achieve success at the highest level of competition. Phil has competed in more than 1,000 rodeos during the course of his professional career. He has qualified for both the PRCA Badlands Circuit Finals and the PRCA Prairie Circuit Finals. Winning at both ends of the arena, roughstock and timed events, led to Phil winning the coveted Bill Linderman Award in 1989. His proven and beneficial approach has resulted in more than $1,000,000 in Equistat earnings, won by the horses that have been a part of the Phil Haugen Horsemanship program. These horses are not limited by discipline or age and have excelled in major barrel racing events, tie-down roping, futurities, derbies and WNFR qualifications. Confident, meaningful communication, and proper horsemanship can allow any horse and rider the opportunity to achieve their optimal individual potential. “Training Through Understanding” is the philosophy that is reinforced throughout all elements of the Phil Haugen Horsemanship program.
