show horses, ranch horses, family horses.
I aspire to train happy horses that are willing to perform to the best of their abilities. The individual horse shapes its own program here.
Graduates from Syringa Bend Stock Horses have been exposed to a variety of environments, including gathering rough country, sorting, and branding in the Oregon and Idaho mountains and deserts, as well as performance horse arena training. My background is in Reined Cowhorse, and I’m fortunate to live in an area with access to some of the top trainers in the industry.

AbOUT LISA KITTEL.
Lisa started her journey in the horse industry as a horseshoer. She apprenticed for farriers in Oregon and Virginia before discovering cutting horses through a client. After a few ranch and feedlot jobs and a lot of moving around, she wound up in South Dakota and went to work for horse trainers, including nearly five years for an AQHA rope horse and cow horse trainer where she developed an internship program, started a wide variety of colts, and began showing cow horses.
Lisa then moved to Idaho to work for Jake Telford riding two year olds. It was an educational year that opened her eyes to a new standard of quality in both horses and training programs. She now lives on the Oregon/Idaho border and trains a few quality horses a year for resale while also showing her own in the NRCHA. Lisa works to continually refine her horsemanship and develop her program.
She is also a graphic designer, builds online entry systems for horse show associations, and is working on a project to help make horse show rules, guidelines, and judging standards more accessible and easier to understand.
