At the North Forty Ranch your colt will receive a solid start under sadle using natural horsemanship methods. The main goal is to have the horse soft and giving on the ground as well as in the saddle. The horse will learn to stand quietly to be saddled, bridled and mounted. In the course of the horses training, it will also become comfortable transitioning through all gaits as well as coming to a smooth stop. Your horse will also be taught to back and receive an introduction to side passing. These are the basics. Customized training will be set up to fit the needs of each horse and rider.

Horses are big, heavy, unpredictable animals. They can be surprisingly clever, or very dumb - those traits can get both you and your horse into trouble. You can get crushed, bitten, kicked, cut, injured or killed - and so can your horse. We will take good, responsible care of your horse, but we make no guarantees. We are not responsible for the safety or the behavior of either you or your horse. We can't promise that your horse or some other horse won't hurt you or a companion while you're here. We can't promise that your horse won't supplement the feed we provide by also eating boards, dirt, plastic or paint - or otherwise behave in a way that makes him sick. Or, he may get sick from any of a number of things - like colic and coughs - that horses are just prone to get. A horse is a big animal and a big responsibility that you, the owner, have to shoulder. The North 40 is just another piece of land where you are free to do that.
