Day one halter breaking a 2 yr old(video)

This is a 2 year old stud colt that has never been halter broke and rarely been touched. A guy down the road from me called and wanted me to get them going for him and this was a good chance to make a little video for YouTube and my website to show just a little insight into halter breaking when it's done without roping them, choking them down etc. and also to show that age or background doesn't matter.

A guy that lives down the road me owns him and we're in Brundidge, AL. Yes he is very nice to look at and I found out he can really move. I told that guy that I want to see this horse go and do something because he has a reputation of just never getting around to doing anything with his horses haha.

That was very good. I like how you didn't use a $50 stick and run him endlessly around a magical round pen. Most people don't change directions on thier horses often enough in the round pen in my opinion.

I couldn't agree more Kevin! A small space so they can't get away from you preferably with no corners to get stuck in is all you need, that and patience, persistence and a comfortable pair of boots =P

Enjoyed the video!! Thank you for making it.

Just a short update video on the continuation of the halter breaking and early ground work and handling process. This video also features a 2 year old palomino filly, that is absolutely beautiful by the way.

Wow, no Freudian psycho babble, no over analyzation, no "buy this", "I always use this"... Just hard work and horse knowledge... Kudos! Accepting that a horse is a horse, good job.
