Colt Class Requires Pre-Approval
Colt Starting

A class for young horses that may or may not have already been handled or worked with, instruction is directed on groundwork and preparation for the first ride. Halter work, gentling and saddling without stress - for both horse and rider - are the focus of Colt Starting. The four-day class is intended to conclude with the rider safely aboard and beginning work in the snaffle bit.

Horsemanship 1

For the green horse and rider already comfortable in the snaffle bit along with aged horses needing continued work. This is the first stage of progressing into the bridle with all basic movements introduced. All levels of riders - no matter what discipline - will benefit. The class features strictly dry work - no cattle. All maneuvers stress the vaquero style of riding and are appropriate for horses from first level snaffle to experienced bridle horses. Hackamore horses welcome.
