TRAINING...

We train steer wrestling and team roping horses, which started as a sideline and because of demand has become our full time occupation.  We strive with basic horsemanship skills, knowing it's essential to a good ranch and performance horse.  

We have trained 320 plus steer wrestling horses. With those horses still on the road, we feel our techniques are successful.  On thing for sure, we take no shortcuts!  We take the time to bring each horse along at it's own pace, advancing them to their fullest potential of doing what they like, whether it be bulldoggin', heading or heeling.  We emphasize good manners; therefore every horse is heeled on for 7 to 14 days to keep them calm in the box and looking for cattle in the field. 

Our training techniques have been built on fundamentals learned from Wayne Cornish, one of the premiere horse trainers in the United States.  We've incorporated a few new ideas believing that if you want your horse to get to their fullest potential, it's important to take a few extra steps with them.  We stress the importance of equine dental work and recommend having your horse checked before ever having him trained.  If a horse has bad hooks or wolf teeth they will probably fight the bit and won't pay attention to you while training them.  We recommend Jimmy Ferguson or Cole Reinhart for all Equine Dental work.  We also do Equine Massage, so if a horse is brought to us because he wants to pull out when the cowboy goes to get off, he is probably sore.  We massage him and in a few days he's back to working great.  Also, proper shoeing, vaccinations and worming are important and should be current.  

We are very proud of our two palomino horses!  We bought them as colts, trained them ourselves and have hauled them since they were 4 year olds.  Snort (Snort Watch) has been named the Badlands Circuit Steer Wrestling Horse of the Year 7 times.  Unc (Uncs Watch) has been named Hazing Horse of the Year 7 Times.  Gordon Good has been chosen as Badlands Circuit Hazer of the Year  for 5 years.

Because we strongly believe in the Tiny Watch bloodlines as a versatile performance horse, we have put together a band of Tiny Watch bred broodmares that we are crossing on an own son of Okie Leo.  As we wait the arrival of 10 new babies, we are looking forward to raising our own herd of performance and arena horses.

If you are interested in having your horse trained or would like to see what we have on hand for prospects, please give us a call and we will be glad to help you out.
