Tucking In Exercise with Joe Wolter


Excerpt from the Horseman’s Gazette Issue No. 2

Creating a good cow horse is all about developing confidence. A confident cow horse wants to be right in the middle of the herd. Joe Wolter works cattle on a two-year-old filly and starts to teach her the game of offense and defense. This young horse learns that she can move the herd and control their direction. Joe shows her how to turn a cow towards and away from them. He encourages her to rate the cow and stay in position. You can cause your horse to care not by what you do to them but because of what you can set the cow up to do to them. This little filly showed a lot of try and is on her way to becoming a handy asset to the ranch.
