#JourneyToTheStart: The Yearling Year

I’ve been working with a pair of yearlings at Moon Dance Ranch. It’s been a lot of fun, and it’s also been an opportunity for me to think through, consider, and now articulate my training choices for getting horses ready to start under saddle. A lot of folks view ground work as something they need to do. For me, its often the best part! I’m very lucky that these yearlings’ people are thoughtful about their horse care, and are in no particular rush. This works out well for me, as I sometimes need to take time away for my research, and for the yearlings, who have a great team behind them.

    • I’ve started quite a few, but none in the last six or so years, so I’m re-evaluating my own methods. I wouldn’t have taken them on if I didn’t trust and respect their person, but they have been an absolute blast! They’re also very, very different from each other, which is pretty handy when I’m trying to think out “why I do what I do,” and which methods I should refine and which I should ditch.
