At Rocking M Horsemanship, we train horses with you in mind. Horses are herd animals and need a leader to feel safe. A horse performs best for someone he trusts, who will protect him. We teach your horse that YOU are that person. And we teach you how to be that person.
Your horse will be desensitized to a mix of 'scary' objects to turn him into a steady partner you can depend on. We train our horses in a step-by-step process that is broken down to make it easy for him to learn and understand. He will learn to give to pressure, instead of reacting dangerously as is natural. He will learn to tune into you, giving you his attention and respect at all times. We will teach him to respond to feather light pressure: instead of you getting into a pulling match with an animal 4 times your weight, a simple gesture or light touch will get the job done.
We start untrained colts, or help fix problem horses. Colts can be gentled or we can bring them to a higher level of experience.
When your horse is trained, we give you the instruction necessary to go home and continue building your horses' trust in you as his leader.
