Horse & Mule Yearling Training Programs
This program focuses on giving your horse a solid foundation by gentling them and introducing them to catching, leading, ground skills, tying, picking up their feet, and trailer loading. Horses and mules under the age of two will benefit greatly from this training.
Yearling Beginning Training with Jerry Tindell
The yearling training process is a complete program starting with an in-depth analysis and evaluation. Jerry’s techniques are perfected without the use of force or punishment, in training as your horse or mule’s demeanor softens they become very willing to do what you ask. At the end of each week your animal is evaluated for progress and you will recieve a report of thier progress. *As the owner you are welcome to come to the ranch at anytime during training and observe and participate in the training if desired. We work with each horse and mule in training 5 days a week.
