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