Victory Hill Training

Horse Training and Finishing in Central Colorado

Training Options

Every horse that comes in for training is evaluated to ascertain it’s physical and mental capabilities.  Then it is started on the ground in the round pen.  It doesn’t matter if the horse is going to become a ranch horse or reining or cutting or pleasure horse. Each horse is taught the basic elements, such as manners, going forward, turns, stops, backing, and trust and respect for it’s handlers.  Horses are taught to enjoy their work and not be afraid.
