Handling Weanlings on Foot – Part 2 with Bryan Neubert


Excerpt from the Horseman’s Gazette Issue No. 2

In part two of this series, Bryan Neubert continues his work handling two young horses on foot. He uses a cinch rope to teach them how to turn loose, not tighten up when they experience being touched under the belly. This step in preparation drastically reduces the likelihood that a colt will buck with the saddle further on down the road.

With a slow and unhurried approach, the colts learn to have their feet handled and to follow the feel of the halter. Along the way, Bryan shares stories of his lessons with Tom Dorrance, who taught him not only how to approach and catch horses, but how to get along with them.
