Jason Irwin is a self-taught trainer who started his first colt when he was twelve. Over the years, he has put the foundation training on hundreds of young horses, both Western and English discipline bred. Jason has been the trainer at the family business NorthStar Livestock Quarter Horses, which is based out of Port Elgin, Ontario, for the last twenty years.
Jason starts young horses, works with problem horses, adds finishing training to older horses, competes in colt starting competitions, and trains liberty horses. He has also started colts and given training demonstrations at some of the largest horse expos in the world. 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, along with his wife Bronwyn, teaches twenty-plus clinics a year. Jason presents information in a practical and easy-to-understand format. Participants in Jason’s clinics range from beginners to experienced trainers. Jason also writes training articles for Horse Canada.
