Just like an artist knows when to stop painting you should know when to stop pushing your horse. Not all horses can handle constant pressure. Knowing when to back off a horse is just as important as knowing when to push. Take the time it takes, and it will take less time.

I see too many people wanting to get the job done too fast.  That is why I take my time with each and every colt that comes in for training.  Too many trainers are pushing a colt through a 30 day program and these horses can do some pretty amazing things physically, but mentally they don’t understand.  It takes consistence, repetition, and patience to train a horse, not constant pressure and a set in stone schedule.

The colts that come out of training leave with a foundation to continue building onto.
