Lucky & the Mustang Tamer Stick

This is the only product we have to sell you and we don't even have a set price.


This was made in the fall of 2010. We got Lucky gelded on the day after Christmas. He had to go to the vet clinic to have a sterile surgical environment. I put a halter on him and led him past the llamas, across a bridge, and along a highway to the vet office. I tried to get the newspaper to run an article about him, hoping to find an adopter, but they just put he and I on the front page without mentioning the fact that the boy needed a home. I adopted Lucky in January, and now a year later I am about to get title to him. He has been trained to drive. We still have mustang tamer sticks available if you want one. Any money we make will be used to deworm the horses.

This is an old video and we have changed some of the procedures to make them safer, but his shows the power of positive reinforcement.


This little horse lives on a ranch 20 miles north of Mustang Camp. His owner was sure pleased.

Here we have a safe and easy way to get a rope on a horse without drama.


I had too much hay in the pen with ol' Granny, but we still got the job done. She got adopted by some people near Mora, NM.

How to Vaccuum A Mustang

Here is a video of one of the horses we trained in 2010. He was adopted by a girl in Mississippi.


You can get a horse to accept almost any kind of sound if you make the sound a predictor that food is arriving. Just switch it on (then quickly off) for a second and hand the horse a treat before it has time to react. Do that about 10 times. The machine makes noise and the horse looks for a treat. Then start leaving it on for longer and longer. Hey, you want your horse to come running when you get out the mane clippers? Not a problem. You can throw the treat in a dish if you don't believe in handfeeding.
