  • Lounging W/T/C
  • Riding in arena
  • Riding out of arena
  • Ponying out either with horse or 4 wheeler

This exercise program is tuned to fit each horses individual needs. They are also fed grain/supplements to maintain weight and promote building healthy muscle as they get in better shape.

Intermediate Undersaddle Work I - started or green undersaddle/needs more time and teaching


Intermediate under saddle work covers everything in Basic Under saddle work. We are working on fine tuning what was previously learned along with:

  • Introduction to collection/vertical direction
  • Circles at the walk/trot/canter
  • Throwing a rope/slipping rope
  • Dragging a roping dummy
  • Ponying another horse
  • Introduction to neck reining

Intermediate Undersaddle Work II - Can easily go through everything covered in Basic undersaddle and Intermediate Undersaddle I. For horses that are consistent in riding but need finishing. 


Intermediate under saddle work II covers everything in Basic Under saddle work I and Intermediate under saddle work I. Intermediate undersaddle work II's main focus is progressing into a shank bit and refining their maneuvers and neck reining.This is one of the first steps in becoming a finished horse or bridle horse. There is no set task list to accomplish as the goals are to refine and shape your horse to eventually be a finished bridle horse. We will include riding both in and out of the area, hauling to different arenas and trails for a better seasoned horse.

  • Circles at the walk/trot/canter
