Our Approach

We believe the ‘start’ is just as important as the ‘finish’.

With the right approach, a horse can accomplish a great deal in a short period of time, and with a solid foundation, he can become a true partner in anything we ask of him.

Of course, the rider has a great responsibility in this as well and we do everything we can to help both horses and owners be successful together.

Our colt start and horse development programs are designed for horses that need to be started under saddle and for those that need further development.  

1.  Ground

Catching, Leading, Tying, Trailer Loading, Tarps, Obstacles, Feet Handling, Saddling. These skills are simple, but the better a horse does them every day, the better he will do everything else.

2.  Riding

A good foundation is key for a horse to have success in any direction.  Walking, trotting, loping, stopping, backing, and turning with softness and effort.  Experience and purpose.

3.  Performance

We specialize in developing an all around horse and compete primarily in reined cowhorse, ranch versatility, roping, trail, and dressage.

4.  Education

The rider’s development is just as important as the horse’s.  At the end of every training period, we spend time with you and your horse to set you up for success and recommend a Plan 4 Progress
