Training and Colt Starting

Everyone who aspires to be a great horseman knows that living the dream takes skill, sensitivity, perseverance and a sense of humor. Each horse needs a little bit different feel and timing.

For horses just starting, or those who need problem solving or retraining, Justin believes in:

- Respect on the ground
- Respect under saddle
- Concentrated training both on the ground and under saddle
- Long trail rides and wet saddle pads make your horse a good, working partner
- Suppleness under saddle and on the ground




Training includes mustang gentling and starting, colt starting, problem solving, and training for reining and other Western performance events.
