you need to know about wrangling for a hunting
or working-ranch. Like our Private Guide Training,

will be the only student in class. Next,
the class is often held at times when clients are
present. Therefore, you can practice in a real-life
setting. Learn horsemanship, shoeing, packing,
catching horses, saddling for you and clients,
and even training horses and mules.
This school also
gives you the student responsibility from day one.
We expect our students to be an active part of
their education. Willingness to ask questions,
willingness to be active in the maintenance of
your camp or classroom by keeping it clean. Participation
in your day to day education is essential to your
success. If you have the
desire to learn more about training horses and
mules, that is what your
class will consist of - Training. Or, if you have the
desire to learn more about shoeing, then that is
what we will work on.
The biggest difference
between our Guide and Wrangler schools is the time
you spend with the horses and mules. During our
wrangler school, your time is spent learning the
ins and outs of horse and mule care, riding, training
and so on. You have the option to learn how to
start a young mule and learn how to put the first
ride on a youngster. You also have the option to
work with "problem" mules or horses and learn how
to fix these problems.
