Colt Starting School

The Pillars of Our Program

Which Program Work best for ou?

Exploring Partnership

Our comprehensive 6 week program is designed as a realistic deep dive into the world of starting young horses. 

Safety and Quality are the guiding principles of our Multi-disciplinary approach.

Safety

The main threat to our safety can be summarized by the following.
We Don't Know What We Don't Know!

It's the main reason we developed our program.

Colt Starting will have safety risks. However, we believe the majority of wreaks in colt starting today are avoidable.

Quality

Our program is supplemented with theory manuals, exercise booklets and checklists. We have built in calls for questions and discussion. We believe learning is an individual process for both humans and horses. That's why we've designed our program to be weeks longer than most.

 

Multi-Discipline

The first 6 weeks in a young horses education are critical for the rest of their career. We believe in setting a horse up with skills for life regardless of their sport. A confident and responsive horse is foundational for most every riding discipline.

 

 

Once a year we transform our hardworking training barn into an education center for those learning  the art of Colt Starting.


Located 45min Northwest of Edmonton our barn has welcomed equines from Ontario and Yukon. Participants from all over North America have visited us for other clinics and programs
