Priefert Testimonial
"When it comes to a pre and post work fitness program for the horses in my barn, the only choice for me is the Priefert panel walker. The quality workmanship and safety features of this machine combined with simple but reliable control panel options make it the best panel walker on the market. I highly recommend the Priefert panel walker."

Raised on a cattle ranch in Queensland, Australia, Andrew Coates began his career working for some of the best cutting horse trainers in Australia. In 1995, he made the move to the U.S. where he worked for Luke Bakey and Gary Gonsalves.

His NCHA professional career began when NFL Hall of Famer, Joe Montana, hired Andrew to train and manage his cutting horse program and, in 2003, he began accepting outside clients. Since that time, he has earned over 20 major aged event champion and reserve champion titles along with taking horses to finalist positions in over 50 major events, including the NCHA Futurity and Super Stakes.

His lifetime NCHA earnings are nearly $800,000 and many of the two year olds Andrew has trained have combined earnings of over $1 million. He and his wife, Nicole, and their two children operate Southern Cross Ranch in Esparto, CA where they continue to train and compete.

Priefert is proud to count Andrew as one of our outstanding endorsees.
