TRAINING



Training of our foals starts from the first day of their lives. Although they are born outside, they are close to the house and have a " private room " , a 30' X 60' corral with their dams. This way we can handle them many times a day without interference from other horses. They can see other horses close by but not so close that their dams get excited.

The foal in this picture is about 3 weeks old and leads from both sides, backs up and lifts all of its feet willingly. By this time Brenda can lead both horses without any help. It pays to have a good relationship with the dam long before the foal is born.
In the summer of 2005 we had the pleasure of hiring Rick Bates of Bragg Creek AB to work with some of our young Tennessee Walking horses on our place. This was one of the best ideas we've ever had! Rick likes the sunshine so he doesn't mind riding outside in the summer and fall. Since then he has been here working here almost every year, adding to his collection of campfire stories and cowboy poems as he deals with all the different equine characters we've introduced him to. For a look at a few movies of Rick's gentle training, go to the Movies page
