Horse Training Yearlings
Training yearlings is the best way I have found to get a horse ready to be broke out. Most horses I have broke do not lead well, let me touch their feet, their head, ears, legs, ect. This is a big set back in the breaking out process. The horse has to first overcome these things before I am able to put the saddle on them. Sometimes this takes a few weeks, which leaves only 10 to 14 days to break and ride the horse.
What I do when training a yearling is to teach them to lead, handle their ears, face, head , legs, feet, and tail. The horse is taught basic cues in the round pen and taught to be caught without a fuss. The horse is taught to accept the saddle and a bit. The horse is saddled and taught to give to pressure of the bit.
After 30 days of this the horse should lead, lift their feet, allow touching of the head, face, and ears. The horse should also give to the bit, be soft in the neck and even side pass. At this point the horse should be able to be broke without issues. The following year the horse should break out in a few days and be able to get three + weeks of riding instead of only a few days.
Your horse will be placed in a "horse safe" stall 12 ft by 24 ft in size. It will be fed twice daily with quality alfalfa and grain and/or supplements at your request. Your horse will be trained in a 40 foot quality round pen located inside a fenced pasture for safety.
We use safe, conventional, training methods so that neither the horse nor the trainer gets hurt. We do not "cowboy" horses or beat or hurt them in any way. Our training methods are those similar to John Lyons. We take great pride in being patient and firm. We want your horse to have the best experience possible and the best training possible .
