Colt starting for us starts and ends with the horses feeling confident and willing to work. We strongly believe that listening to the horse during the starting process allows the horse to find growth while not overwhelming them. The continued goal is find ways for the horse to build new skills in a way that leaves them happy to work again the next day.

Regardless of your goal, discipline or sport, your horse will be better suited for the next step in their life.


Timelines to meet these mile stones differ from horse to horse and are subject to change. We do not believe in pushing horses into training they are not ready for and will not back a colt prematurely.

Our assessment is broken down into three Levels so we can give you an understanding of how we work and the time it takes to create a willing riding horse. We are always sensitive to taking care of their emotional, mental and physical well-being.  


The horses always come first.
