About Ruella Yates...
Ruella and Renaissance Painter (Renn)
- "I train using Native American and Old West traditions in a 'new' way of liberty training that is as old as the time horses and the 'first people' came together in the American West. My life with horses is profound in every way. What I learn from them, I bring to my students. My goal is making the world a better place for horses." -Ruella Yates
