Summer Vacation





Here are some photos from a pack trip into the Montgomery Pass this June. It is a unique area because the wild mustang herds are not rounded up and managed by BLM. The reason, mountain lions! They "prey-switch" from mule deer to baby foals. The trip was offered by the Rock Creek Pack Station near Bishop, Ca. It was an amazing opportunity to observe and track mustangs on the range. It made me excited to return home so I could start training mustangs again!

Adopt a Wild One

This is a blog dedicated to gentling and adopting out BLM mustangs to approved homes. Through the Mustang Heritage Foundation, trainers are able to take an untamed mustang home and work for a period of up to 90 days to gentle and then adopt the mustang to an approved home. Mustangs range in size and color and have been known to compete in every discipline from dressage to trail challenges.

My focus is on creating a calm, quiet, accepting equine partner. I use natural horsemanship techniques that allow the horse to move at a comfortable pace. Earning trust is the first step in a successful relationship and that is where I begin. You can see my last mustang from the 2010 Extreme Mustang Makeover Norco, Ca edition at www.ollyandherpets.blogspot.com
