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 and follow her dam out to pasture and back to the barn.  She will learn to trailer load this summer and stand for the farrier too. 

 

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

 

Two year olds are started under saddle in the round pen, once they have learned the cues on the ground and are comfortable with the tack. 

 

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 down 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.

Lady, 2017 mare - We've sold her dam to a ranch job, so she's the last of these strong roping lines.

 

Buzz, 2018 gelding

We've just started working with Buzz, but so far, he's smart and agile.  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 in 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 finding the daily handling to be a novelty and hasn't totally found her relaxation while working yet.  She's not afraid of the work in the round pen but has quite a lot of energy to release.  I can hardly wait to see her smooth moves out at pasture this summer.  She's going to turn heads.

 
 

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 palomino colt that is finding his place in the herd.  He's definitely not pushing anyone around just yet but he's making strategic friends.  He's growing fast and learns quickly.  He already leads like a pro! He has a thick woolly winter coat trying to shed out so we are interested to see what colour he'll be this summer.

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.

Full Pedigree Details Coming soon...

Smartie, 2019 filly

Smartie is our first Peppy San baby and she certainly gave us a run for our money early on.  She's settling 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!
