Horse Training

The Rockin P JJR Ranch Training   

We offer a custom-tailored training program for your horse that focuses on problem-solving with a light touch and starting young horses under saddle with an emphasis on positive communication and respect. We do not believe there is “one way” to train a horse. Every horse is different and requires its own level of training and time. We take great pride in being patient, consistent and firm. Whether you need us to start your young horse under saddle, advance your horse to the next level or work through your horse’s behavioral problems, we can work with you to design a training program to meet your goals. We want your horse to be happy, use its mind, and respect you as a rider. It is up to the horse owner how long their horse stays in training. This will vary depending on the preference of the owner, previous riding experience, and the temperament of the horse. A progress log will be available.

They must all start somewhere!

Our Basic Saddle & Ground Work will ensure you horse has a solid foundation. Every horse learns at a different level. To start we will do a free evaluation to find out where the horse is in its abilities and training. We will train the horse every other day for the first week. The following weeks our goal is to work with it two or three consecutive days then one day off. 

We will work with the horse in the evenings during the week. Weekend work will be a lot more involved. Below is a list of goals we have for your horse no matter what age. This may not all be accomplished in 30 days. Again, depending on the horse, we will work on goals until it understands thoroughly what is being asked of it. Highlighted are our main objectives in the first 30 days plus making sure the horse still understands the basic skills. This will provide a concert base for when it is ready for breaking.
