He has bred, raised and started young horses and retrained older horses for diverse performance events such as the race track, polo, upper level dressage, movie and television stunt work, upper level eventing, warmblood stallion performance testing, and stock horse events including reining, cutting and ranch versatility.

“I have known Harrison Burnett for more than 20 years on both a professional and social basis…To this day I have not found anyone who could train difficult horses any better than Harrison. He has that invisible thread that horses seem to love and can make them do things others can’t. What is really rare is that he has a similar ability with people. In his clinics and lessons he also trains riders so they can ride and understand their horses better. He’s able to explain, communicate and demonstrate to people…
I cannot do justice to Harrison Burnett’s abilities with horses or people. His expertise, honesty and good work ethic set a very high standard. He’s a horse trainer’s horse trainer who happens to be a very good person.”
