Monte and Stoney Jones use cow work and performance- horse maneuvers to produce versatile ranch horses. Here, they outline the five skills every ranch horse must have, and tips to achieve them when starting your colt.
Develop A Strong Defense
Here’s how to give your horse the judgment and self-assurance he needs to keep cattle from crossing the line.
Last month, we discussed how working cattle is similar to a team sport, such as football. You and your horse are on one side of the scrimmage line, and the cow is on the other. The herd, or the “goal,” is behind you. Also like football, each team is either on offense or defense. The cow’s movement and position with regard to the herd, gate or other “goal” determines which role your horse must play.
