As an advanced rider, you may be interested in learning additional methods of training and riding to improve your abilities and skill level. One of the traditional methods of training we offer at Ferrante Ranch is working the cow horse. Working cow horse is a type of competition which has recently become much more popular, especially among NHSRA sanctioned events. This form of riding has brought newfound interest among both teenagers and adults.
In the old days, horses were often used to gather and trail cattle. However, in current times, this had become much rarer. Horses are hardly exposed to cattle so they do not have the natural instinct to act as a working cow horse.
In addition to training riders, Ferrante Ranch also offers training services for your horses. Our experienced trainers can provide you with training service and advice on how to build your horse's cow sense. Instead of reacting like water to oil, we train your horses to meld together smoothly with cows.
As your horse begins to learn and progress, they will slowly be introduced to more cows and taught the most effective ways to work with cows. We have 150 years of combined experience in the field of training horses, riders, and trainers. You can trust that we use the utmost patience and care with every new horse or trainer we take on at our Southern California horse ranch.
