A lifelong rider, Warwick Schiller moved from his home country of Australia to the United States to pursue his dream of training horses.
He focused on reining, his passion, eventually going on to become an NRHA (National Reining Horse Association) Reserve World Champion and also representing Australia in reining at the 2010 Alltech World Equestrian Games.
Somewhere along the way of learning to train reining horses, Warwick came to understand a thought process; a way of dealing with horses that crossed all boundaries of breed or discipline. This thought process involves a high level of understanding the nature of horses, something that doesn’t need to be taught to them, as it is something they already understand.
Warwick’s ability to solve horse problems is a skill that only the world’s finest horsemen possess, but his unique gift lies in his ability to explain the how, why and when of what he does with the horses.
Warwick’s wife Robyn and son Tyler are also integral to the WSPH team. Robyn takes care of the business end of things while Tyler can often be found on the other side of the camera filming clips for Warwick.
