The following organizations have partnered with us to provide the best care and resources for horses and humans.


Comstock Equine Hospital is a full service equine veterinary hospital providing advanced veterinary care to horses located in Northern Nevada. With our sister practice Great Basin Equine, located in Gardnerville, we serve as the equine medicine and surgical referral hospitals for Northern Nevada and Northern California.
Our mission is to provide our clients the best value in progressive equine veterinary service and ensure our patients receive the highest level of comfort and care.
Kathy is a Veterinary Assistant at Comstock and they are our preferred vet for our personal horses.



Katrina’s experience is eclectic and broad in scope. Ranging from a solid foundation in the Hunter/Jumper discipline to Jousting, Vaquero horsemanship and currently Working Equitation and Western Dressage, she has committed to implementing biomechanically correct techniques that are sustainable for both horse and rider.

Katrina's promise:

Facilitating core communication between horse and human is my primary goal. Through classical methods, I will help each horse and rider achieve partnership whether the goals include competition or merely riding for pleasure. I am dedicated to providing customized programs to suit each horse and rider while maintaining horse-centered focus.

Kathy and Dan study with Katrina as often as possible as well as hosting her as a clinician at their ranch so others can benefit from her fantastic teaching. We are proud to have her as a mentor and friend.

Bryan was raised on his family's ranch near Salinas, California. In his teen years he became friends with neighbor Bill Dorrance. He spent all the time he could with Bill, working with horses and braiding rawhide.

After college he worked with Bill steadily, starting and riding colts on Bill's ranch. During this time Bryan met Bill's friend Ray Hunt and Bill's brother Tom Dorrance. He had many opportunities since those years to work for and with these gifted men. They have greatly influenced and helped him learn what he is able to accomplish with a horse and ultimately with parts of his life.

Bryan has spent 20 years cowboying and riding colts on some of the biggest ranches in Nevada and California. Thirteen of those years were spent as cowboss in charge of cattle, horses and the cowboy crew. He has had valuable experience working with wild horses in Nevada, as well as conducting demonstrations on wild horse handling across the country. He has a video titled Wild Horse Handling and was featured in Western Horseman. See the February '96 issue, "Taking the Wild out of Mustangs" by Jim Overstreet.

Since 1992, Bryan calls Alturas, California home. Alturas is located in the northeastern part of the state. He holds clinics at his home for part of the year and travels the United States and Canada the rest of the year helping people and their horses through his colt starting, horsemanship and cow working clinics.

Dan has been riding with and learning from Bryan 2-4 times per year since 2017 and is honored to consider him a friend.

As a former Nevada 4-H member, Kathy has had a long relationship with the Nevada 4-H horse program. Now as professional equestrians, Dan and Kathy are proud to support the next generation of horsemen in Nevada! We have provided guidance for the 4-H Wild Horse Training Program that partners with the BLM to get yearling mustangs out of holding and gentled by committed 4-H participants. 
These participants demonstrated the intent of the 4-H Pledge – pledging their heads, hearts and hands – to raise these magnificent animals. 
We hope to grow this relationship even further in the coming years and provide even more learning opportunities to youth equestrians in Nevada!
