Do your weanlings have a "work ethic"?  Do they "crave" training sessions and handling? Do they have a healthy combination of discipline and trust? Do they move away from pressure and have a "handle" and "feel" only trained and finished horses have? 

Do they tie, trailer load, lounge, ground drive and accept
a girth and other invasive objects such as plastic, ropes and more?  Ours do!

  We get these results from our original foal training program which specializes in effective training from birth through weaning age. 

This is a unique program designed to "develop" a horse's mind to it's fullest capabilities during the "foalhood" period, (from birth to weanling age) by using a foal's natural curiosity and attention span as a learning tool, reinforcing discipline and increasing independence along with introducing necessary physical skills like sacking out, response to pressure, tying, trailering & much more.

All foals raised at Wet Paint Farms have been handled from birth through weaning in this original training program designed to build a foundation  of TRUST, TRY, and TRAINING
from day one.

This foundation of valuable training exposes foals to a productive learning environment, making all future handling and training simple, more safe, enjoyable and effective for both the horse and trainer!  These pre-weanlings have a foundation of learning skills and trust that the majority of older, trained horses have never achieved. 



This filly (above) is choosing to enjoy a stimulating learning session on her own, which is often the most effective way for foals to learn.  It encourages independence, prevents burnout
or pushing beyond it's capabilities. 

Sessions are often
"self-paced" for foals to allow learning to occur within their natural curiosity and attention span.
 


The colt (left) is pictured with an ace bandage around his girth which simulates the feeling of a cinch.  

It is holding a plastic bag on his back to get the foal used to simulate scary noises and objects, which is a form of "sacking out" for future training events such as the first saddling.

There is a BIG difference in a horse that has been handled from day one -
with both discipline & trust in people!
