We do not buy and sell horses here. I have more than I need so I will keep some for sale till I get down to what fits comfortably in my barn or I build a bigger barn.
We select a few of the best horses from the Lazy Y Arrow Ranch in Colorado each year to bring home and help them reach their potential. Many believe these are the best of the Arrow's Walkers horses. We enjoy going and getting get a load of horses select the best ones, then bring them home to train.... (read more) I kept my favorites and would sell or return the rest. I did this for several years so have horses from 15 years old all the way down to yearlings off the ranch as well as foals born here at home. If you are curious and just want to talk horses just title your message as such and I am happy to explain the differences between a $500 horse and a $5000 horse. Please do not pretend to be interested in a horse just to chat. I am happy to talk horses for free as well as consult for a fee.
Horsemanship is the understanding and unity with the horse. The rider is the brains and the horse is the brawn, working in harmony. We strive to do everything better, not just run a pattern or win a ribbon. This understanding and communication makes our time with our horses both safer and more fun
I train people and horses the same way. We only worry about the most basic safety procedures first, then we refine, polish, and grow new skills. There should be no punishment in horse training. Instead, we use correction and repetition. I believe in some time on horses (on lounge line, no reins) as soon and as much as possible. Muscle memory cannot be learned from a book or lecture. Staying on a horse is not riding but it is hard to be an effective rider if you can not stay on.
Let us train you and your horse to be willing partners who are engaged and enjoy learning together in an atmosphere where they feel comfortable to try, rather than fearful of making mistakes...
trust, authority, and friendship are essential.
We love our horses and want our horses to love us back. But the reality is that without proper training horses are dangerous. Gaining trust is not enough. It takes both trust and training to make a safe dependable horse.
Proven methods are safe and effective for horse and horseman. It isn’t what we do but how we do it that changes our outcome. Small changes make a big difference.
