Another Go With Timeless Promise

Reinforcing the lessons from our first session...

Timeless Promise Starts From Scratch

She is a 3 year old filly without much more than halter training... Follow these videos to learn the smart and safe way to break and train. As you'll see, it is key to let the equipment do most of the work and take all of the abuse.

Leave Me A Roan's First Ride

The rest of the yearling riding. More excitement, but happy ending:

Breaking the "Two Year Olds"

These three are May foals, but as some of you know, their official birthdays are January 1st, so they just turned two as far as the industry is concerned. I happen to think there are bargains to be had with later foals if you are fine with starting them when they are ready and not in a huge hurry. This is often the case with Backyard Trainers as daily upkeep is not so expensive as spending all that time at the track with a trainer. Great calm and patient horsemanship by Eric here. The next video with Leave Me A Roan's first ride is a little more exciting.
