I currently have a few stallions in training here on my farm , and I must admit that I am always thrilled to work with them!
Few of my colleagues wish to take stallions into training, and there are several reasons for this reticence. One is that stallions usually need more space because they cannot be integrated into an existing flock. Another reason may be of an entirely practical nature, such as the height of the fences, which must be higher than 160 cm to prevent unfortunate coverings.
On my farm, the frame is purposely designed to train stallions. I have wide experience in training stallions and have never found that they are either more or less difficult to train than any other horse.
Stallions at my farm are trained using exactly the same method. They are completely free like the other horses, and it works!.
As with all horses, we must pay attention to the development of the horse during the training process. The coach must be responsive to the horse’s physical development and to the horse’s mental state, so that the result of the training is as complete as possible for both the stallion and the owner.
It always gives me great satisfaction and joy when I see a stallion accompany its owner without a leash or any form of coercion, while seven wild mares are neighing in the paddock right next door.
Away with the stallion chain and in with appreciative leadership!
The Horse Rider’s Journal
This weekend I’m going to England to train Spanish stallions at Lomond Stallions farm and to be interviewed by The Horse Rider’s Journal.
I’m looking forward to sharing the session with all of you.
My new film
By the way, there is a new film on my website where you can see how I train a wild stallion and how much I achieve in two days.
