Teaching a Foal to Follow Pressure of a Lead Rope

Anthony demonstrates how he teaches foals to follow the pressure of a lead rope and halter on a young foal.

Anthony walks us through the process of teaching a foal to follow the pressure of a lead rope. He puts a lead rope on a month-old foal for the first time and shows us the best way to help him understand that he’s asking him to follow the pressure. Then, Anthony shows us what to do if the foal resists pressure. He shows us a method of putting a lead rope around his hind end and using that to guide him forward.

Horsemanship

Develop a true partnership with your horse by gaining a better understanding of how horses think and respond through horsemanship training videos with Brad Barkemeyer, Bud Lyon, Monique Potts, Ken McNabb, Al Dunning.

Ranch Riding

Ranch riding events were originally created to help showcase the versatility, attitude, and movement of a working ranch horse. Now it has become one of the largest events offered by breed association horse shows, and we see many horses that compete in events like reining or working cow horse transition over to ranch riding. We work with ranch riding world champion riders Bud Lyon and Cody Crow who help you perfect your ranch riding horsemanship and improve your performance in the arena.

Cutting

National Cutting Horse Association Hall of Fame riders Winston Hansma and R.L. Chartier demonstrate the fundamentals you need to have before ever putting your horse on a cow and explain the importance of including dry work into your daily riding routine. They’ll then show you how to work your horse on live cattle and go over the tack and gear you need to have to compete in this event.

Reining

Master reining maneuvers with help from professionals like Bud Lyon, Peter DeFreitas, Keith Ceddia, and Ryan Rushing. These videos are designed to help improve your horse’s circle, spins, and sliding stops, by demonstrating the fundamentals of reining, the tack and gear you’ll need to compete in reining, and help you troubleshoot any problems you run into at home.
