Balance

November 21, 2019
Tristen Baroni

I spend a lot of time pondering how to trick other people into relaxing and living in the moment if only for a moment. While this may seem far fetched, it is balance. Balancing the thoughts and intentions in the mind to be present and in the moment, is the first step towards balance with […]

I have been trying to say “yes” to more opportunities (especially learning) for myself, something that I haven’t really done since having kids. So when I saw that Lee Smith was going to be at the first Art of the Cowgirl event in Phoenix, Arizona, and a friend and fellow mother of young’uns asked if […]

Lateral Flexions and Simple Manuvers

August 14, 2019
Tristen Baroni

Today I quickly go over some basic flexions on my horse, Merl, for his first ride in the hackamore. The goal of these flexions is to gain more and more willing control of the horse’s body. While doing so you are actually also helping the horse maintain suppleness, and lengthening and shortening his muscles, therefore […]

Jenn Zeller

This Spring, I learned about a new hoof testing device called the KrossCheck Leverage System. My good barrel horse came up crippled after our first run of the year. I was devastated. Radiographs taken in Texas, where I was at, showed fractured side bones, and low ringbone. That vet wanted to inject the coffin joint, […]

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 […]


How To Start A Colt

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 […]

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 […]
