Starting Under Saddle

Starting Under Saddle

With our Colt Starting Program your young horse will be started under saddle using Natural Horsemanship Methods, meaning we do not break horses here, we teach them in a kind, gentle and understanding fashion. We do not use big bits, or tie downs in any of our training.

We only take in a select number of horses a month. That way we can assure every horse gets the amount of time we have promised!

What your young horse will learn:

Your horse will be worked for about 1-2 hours a day, 5 days a week. It will learn lots of Natural Horsemanship ground work and tons of Desensitizing to all sorts of objects and obstacles. It will learn how to walk, trot and canter in a circle on correct leads with a rider.

It will learn how to Back, Sidepass, Turn on Haunches, Turn on Forehand, Counter Arc, give Laterally and Vertically building toward collection, it will learn how to Think its way through many Obstacle Training and TONS of Trail Miles will be put on your horse as well.

We typically keep the colt for two to three months depending on how it progresses and its personality. We also do tune ups and other training. Just ask..

+ 1.000 kids started here

I brought my Brownie Girl Scout Troop for a two hour lesson on Aprl 22, 2012. They were so very excited and worked very hard selling cookies to earn this adventure. They were definately not disappointed! Alicia and all the other ladies who helped out were amazing with our 7 and 8 year olds! The horses were amazingly well trained and I was so impressed with how they ran the lesson, taught the girls care and maintenance and soothed the fears of the nervous riders. The girls learned so much and had so much fun! They couldn’t stop talking about it on the ride home. As a teacher, I always notice how other people teach children especially in settings outside a classroom. NorCal Trail Rides gets an A++ i my book! Thank you again for an amazing, memorable day! My troop had the time of their lives 🙂
