Product Description

Available in DVD format only.

Fort Worth, Texas, where some of the world’s greatest horsemen and women meet for two days of Colt Starting and Horsemanship under the watchful expert eye of Ray Hunt. But most of all, they’ve come to pay tribute to Tom Dorrance, the legendary man who changed the way the human relates to the horse, somewhat to the benefit of the human, but greatly to the benefit of the horse. This three part video captures the excitement, the humor, the fun, and most of all, the dedication to the horse and to giving him the best deal possible.

Mornings are for Colt Starting. The Clinicians randomly draw for colts from four ranches, Hunt, 6666, Pitchfork and Moorhouse. We follow the clinicians over two mornings as they catch the colts, work them on the ground, saddle them and – with Ray’s insight and coaching¡ªtake that first all important ride.

Afternoons are reserved for Horsemanship Class. Here we meet new participants, joining some of the clinicians from the Colt Starting class. Many have come with their own horses in tow, while others ride horses supplied for them. Since the horses have various levels of experience, the Horsemanship Classes are both insightful and exciting.
