How to Select a Barn, Trailer and Trainer
To select horses for a breeding program you should make your
selection based first on disposition, conformation and athletic
ability, pedigree, compatability of color with our strain.
If you find a horse that possesses all of these qualities
and it happens to be homozygous, (possessing two identical
forms (alleles) of a particular gene, one inherited from each
parent, for breeding true that's great, if not, you may try
to cross it with one that is. Others, select horses for their
ruggedness; excellent feet, leg, and bone; confirmation; temperament;
intelligence and cowiness, as do all good foundation breeders.
So, what sets the best horses apart? We suggest that you select
horses with extended elastic strides and good suspension in
addition to large, hard, round, mostly black or striped hooves,
but you will need to work out your own requirements.
Choosing a horse for a jumping breeding candidate will clearly
have different qualifications than one chosen for, for example,
flat racing. Just because a horse has a wall full of show
awards does not mean he'll be the best choice for backpacking

Selecting a Horse Trailer
Selecting a horse trailer is one of the most important decisions
a horse owner can make. Because it's very easy to be overwhelmed
by fancy options and shiny construction materials, it is extremely
important to keep in mind that the number one priority when

Selecting a Horse Trainer
The trainer should be able to unlock the full potentials of
the horse. Training should not be brutal, or hard on the horse.
Remember, when hiring a horse trainer, you should always look
for the best candidate available. However, don't assume that
overall care for the horse is guaranteed by the trainer. Remember
that when you get the horse home it may take a while to settle
in so don't panic if you encounter some settling in problems
simply take things slowly and work them through. Remember
that the horse trainer needs a happy and content horse to
work with if he or she is to get the best from your steed.
We simply cannot emphasise too highly that to learn natural
horsemanship is by far the best. As are far as we are concerned
it literally works wonders!
