Hi all.Hope winter has been treating you gently. I was a range rider last year in the Tom Miner Basin. Which meant I rode at dawn and dusk to count and gather cows together and haze wolves out if they seemed to be there. The main objective is to be a human presence. Allowing wolves and cows to stay alive. This summer I was asked again to continue but this time in the Centennial Valley. I need 3 horses to rotate for a 4 month period. I was wondering if any of you had or knew someone who might want their horses to gain experience and or confidence or just regular exercise. Feed and shoes are provided. If you or know someone who might be interested could you private message me? Or email me at [email protected]
Just a reminder that Ross Jacobs will be at my barn at 1435 Barrett Rd, Billings, Oct 15-18. 15th is private lessons if anyone wants one and the clinic is 16th- 18th. Look forward to having auditors. Most on this list know about the work he does as it follows a similar philosophy that we have seen with Alex. Just different experiences that he has that shapes his training.

More than anything in her young world, Georgie Chapman had always wanted a horse of her own. When a neglected, half-starved c**t inexplicably wanders on to her family's Montana ranch, the ponytailed teen becomes the palomino's caregiver, trainer, and best friend. Together, they discover their property is haunted by eerie spirits. Ghosts. At first, only unnerving nuisances occur...tools moved in the barn, equipment tampered with, sightings of a spooky shadow figure. Georgie's dog, Joey, and horse, Freedom, are too often on edge...tormented and scared. Her parents are oblivious to the evil that lurks, blowing off the strange events as harmless coincidences or their daughter's overactive imagination.
Georgie's problems don't end there. She encounters more suspense with high school peers---some good friends with high moral principles to be admired...some overly-entitled bullies you'll root against.
Grant Bishop, a hard working son of a cattle rancher lives several miles up the road. The young cowboy falls hard for the petite tomboy. He gladly volunteers, along with her best friend, Tana, to assist with training her horse that summer. Georgie recognizes that the dark entities are growing more powerful, ramping up their danger. It falls on the three teenagers to rescue her beloved family and innocent animals from the wicked paranormal assaults
Hello is there anyway to send me pictures of the 3R bitless bridle that's actually on a horse. The ones that I have found are not very clear. And I would like your opinion on if you think this bridle will be good for any horse. Thank you
I have a halflinger mare and was wondering if the 3R sidepull will fit her?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALEX
“You’re late!” Alex called as I asked Chloe to stop. I heard her say it in the back of my brain when we walked off, too, but it hadn’t penetrated my conscious. In my mind, Chloe was “with me” when I led her off and when we came to halt. Her feet moved off and stopped exactly when mine did. When I questioned Alex, she said, “Is Chloe’s mind in her feet?!” Where is her nose when you stopped? Is that where it was when you started? No, in fact. Chloe was walking several steps behind me, If her feet stopped the minute mine did, how did she get so close to me? “Her mind is not in her feet" (or bum, or any other place; not the first time I’ve heard this!). She wasn’t “ready". Her mind wasn’t thinking about starting or stopping--she was late. And I was late in recognizing it. Just because she kept slack in the rope didn’t mean she was thinking about going/stopping. I asked Alex to demonstrate, and the difference in Chloe’s demeanor was striking. Within a minute or so, the horse was floating along waiting for Alex’s next request. Clarity. Being “late” muddles clarity. You don’t see it until you see it. Then you can’t not see it. I understood a new level of "late". Thanks Alex!
We enjoyed auditing your classes today in Billings. I sure come Spring, Promise our TWH will be experiencing life at Three Rivers Tom & Kalyn Tyre
Excited to be on my way to engage in 3 days of training with Alex. See you soon!!
OK Alex, I guess even old dogs absorb some new tricks.. saddled the mule, and decided to walk out away from the house, after all if we pack out an elk, we will be walking and leading him. After an hour and a half, and 2.5 miles...he looked at me maybe three times. I never got on him...someone said if they don't pay attention on the ground, they aren't paying attention when your in the saddle...I essentially walked him like the most basic obedience class for dogs...changed directions when he got ahead of me...but..I think I need some lessons on getting his attention!!! Are you up for stubborn and stubborner???
You know your horse missed you when, after being gone for a few days you pull into the drive way and he sees you and takes off running with head up and tail in the air and waits for you by the pasture fence next to the garage. What a great feeling!! Thanks for helping me build a better relationship with my horse Alex!!
