Standing Tied

Not standing tied seems to be a behavioral problem alot of people and their horses don’t understand. Without realizing it, alot of people we’ve helped with this in past years have actually 'taught' their horses that "to be tied is a bad and spooky thing". Then, when the horse pulls back to free himself from this "spooky" situation, people don’t understand it. Whether tied to a tree or a trailer - calm is the word. Look how nicely our "students" stand. Let us fix this for you - then you can relax and enjoy!

Your horse must stand tied and behave.

Separation - "You Go, I'll Stay"

There’s alot of horses out there that believe their place is "nose to tail" with the guy in front of them, or "where he goes, I go". While herd instinct is a common excuse, proper trail manners can be taught. Let us help you and your horse with perfecting those trail manners. Have a look at the photos below and the distance we can put between these guys.


There are three other horses nearby.
Look at the distance.

Angie & "Buffy"

Angie invited us to join her and "Buffy" at Morrow Mountain to see the Fall colors. Angie bought "Buffy" from us about a month before this ride. It was great fun and these two are definitely a team.

There are great days when you are a working horse dog - and THEN ...
