As a horse trainer, there are several tasks that I believe are important for the horses before they are turned over to me. When starting colts, I see lots of horses at all different levels of training when they arrive at my place. Some are seven year-old studs that have never been handled. They have just been run in to the trailer straight from the pasture. Others are pets that have been loved too much. Both types of horses present their own significant challenges.
