Jason Irwin started his first colt when he was twelve and has been at it ever since.
He is a self taught trainer who has put the foundation training on hundreds of young horses.
Jason has been the trainer at the family business Northstar Livestock, which is based out of Port Elgin, Ontario, for the last twenty years. Northstar Livestock raises quarter horses – specializing in big fancy blue roans that sell throughout North America.
Jason, along with his wife Bronwyn, teach twenty-plus horsemanship and liberty training clinics a year.
Besides starting colts under saddle Jason also works with problem horses, adds finishing training to older horses, competes in colt starting competitions, and trains liberty horses.
Horses started and trained by Jason have gone on to excel in everything from barrel racing to ranch work to fox hunting to performing in drill teams and just about everything in between. His aim is to put a solid foundation on a horse so that it can go on to excel in any discipline.
Jason presents information in a practical and easy-to-understand format. Participants in Jason’s clinics range from beginners to experienced trainers.
