June 21, 2019
Tristen Baroni

Today we are once again diving into my strange brain. Enter at your own risk! In this video I put a ride on one of my horses in the Meyer Company ranch horses program. I cover a wide variety of topics from the halt all the way to the lope. Try and take some of […]

June 15, 2019
Tristen Baroni

In this hour long segment we go over how to start a colt and I show and demonstrate several things a potential horse buyer should check out. My line of thinking is, if I can teach you how to observe, you can learn together with your horse. Observation is the key, before you go to […]


Transformation Tuesday: Tuning the Horse into You

June 11, 2019
Jenn Zeller

In the video below, we’ll show you what we might do to help a troubled horse tune into you. You’ll see at the beginning, the horse is looking around, kind of blasting through the ground work. He’s not really thinking about what Zach is asking. It doesn’t take too long, however, and his head comes […]

Jolyn Young

It hasn’t rained this much since…well, since the last time it rained this much. Climate change believers blame automobile emissions and factory farming (whatever that is) for the unusual weather patterns, but we who make a living outdoors know the truth: It’s just springtime. This extended cold/wet weather pattern last occurred in northern Nevada in […]

Savanna Simmons

Photographing a horse for sale or standing at stud, that sort of thing, can be a little mystifying, but when you break it down a little, it can be pretty easy to show a horse’s best attributes. I try to represent the horse as best I can with what he really is. I think it’s […]

Here are some fun ways to spice up your ground work and provide your horse another platform to understand pressure and release. Be careful when you start this, you may have your horse good off of the lead rope, but you also may find that this is a different feel for your horse. I mention […]

May 8, 2019
Savanna Simmons

So, this video here is a little clunky. I’m pretty hesitant to post it, quite frankly, but I’m hoping it will encourage someone who feels a little like I look. I shot it myself as the sun was setting the other night, so if you see me looking at the camera, it’s to be sure […]


The Community Kids’ Horse

May 6, 2019
Jolyn Young

We needed another kids’ horse for our growing family, and we didn’t have another suitable one coming up through the home-trained pipeline. My husband Jim and I browsed for-sale websites and asked around, but nearly a year of searching yielded no results. We were willing to shell out some cash, but finding a horse that […]
