All horses here at the ranch are trained under Natural Horsemanship methods. Natural methods focus on gaining a horses respect by establishing communication that is natural to a horse in its herd like environment. Natural methods focus on making a soft and supple willing horse that is less reactive and more of a thinker rather than using methods that bend a horse to the riders will thus creating a hand in hand team and life long companionship.
