Our Training Program

 

All of our herd receive regular work by our onsite trainer, specific to  their age, physical development and level of skill.  

 

The youngest, our new filly, learns to accept a halter, follow her dam out to pasture and back to the barn.  She has learned to trailer load this summer and stand for the farrier too. 

 

The yearlings learn to stand tied, lead, lunge and experience many new sacking out activities, including puddles, ropes and tarps. 

 

Two year olds receive ground work that relates directly to carrying a rider.  Once they have learned the cues and are comfortable with the tack, they will be backed in the round pen.

 

Three year olds are ridden daily, learning proper collection, square stops and smooth transitions between gaits.  As the horses advance, we teach the spin and slide and start working the flag and cattle on the fence. 

 

These horses are bred for competitive events but also enjoy and benefit from ranch work.  Their eyes light up on cattle, and "lock on" to every move.  Working cattle at pasture and riding trails to check on the herd provides practice at picking up their feet over logs, and accustoms them to local wildlife, shadows and all kinds of weather.  They learn to walk quietly through the herd at times and cut a specific cow at other times, always under their rider's direction.

We try to breed, start and train horses that will work for our customers.  We've sold to ropers, ranchers, breeders and show competitors.  Let us know what you are looking for and we will try to help.  We will consider the activities you want to do with your horse, your level of riding/competition and how often they will be worked.

The Young Horses

 
 
 
 

Buzz, 2018 gelding

We just started working with Buzz this sping.  We think he'll be a fancy mover in the show pen with his sharp, dark markings.  He's already brave and confident yet not pushy on the ground and takes new challenges with barely a notice.  He seems older than his years both in his quiet demeanour and speedy acclimation to new tasks.  It won't be long before he will be ready for more than ground work.

 

KitKat, 2019 filly

KitKat is new to the training pen.  She is a quick mover with lightning fast reflexes  A lighter build and those quick feet suggest athletic performance to come from this youngster.  She's still getting used to daily work but she's at ease in the round pen, hauling and standing tied.  I can hardly wait to see her smooth moves in the cutting pen in a couple years! She's going to turn heads.

 
 

Smartie, 2019 filly

Smartie is our first Peppy San baby and she certainly gave us a run for our money early on.  She's settled in now and working well in the round pen.  True to her name, she's smart and learns very quickly.  She's right at the gate when you walk by and happy to come in to be worked.  She has such fluid, easy movement and that brain is fully engaged!  She's going to be fun to ride.

Chiclet, 2020 filly

Chiclet is probably the friendliest yearling we've ever had.  It could be the extra handling early on (Thanks, Stine), but I suspect she is just a natural socialite.  This llittle one makes her own place and convinces the others that she belongs.  No feed bucket is off limits to her.  She is going to put smiles on peoples faces, that's for sure!

Shiner, 2020 colt

Shiner is a handsome sorrel colt that is finding his place in the herd.  He's grown from a timid colt to a defender of his favourite mare.  He's growing fast and learns quickly.  He already leads like a pro and stands for the farrier. 

Shiner already knows and LOVES the cows!

Riley, 2021 filly

Riley is our newest herd addition. By Reys from Heaven and out of Truckin Lisa Marie, she's going to be one to watch.  Already, she has fancy moves at pature with her dam.

This little filly is a grand-daughter of ELVIS, aka NMSU Truckin Chex, the multi-time World Open Bridle Horse at the NARCHA under Kevin Stallings.  Her mother, Elvis' daughter is Truckin Lisa Marie.  

As Elvis had only one grand daughter, called Riley, we felt this might be a good name for this athletic filly, also a grand daughter of ELVIS.
