Along with raising and training our own string of horses, taking in outside horses is also a large part of what we do here at Running O. Dusty focuses on natural horsemanship training techniques often used by Tom Dorrance, Ray Hunt, and Buck Brannaman. With this style of training, it gives the horse and rider an opportunity to learn with each other, with positive affirmation for desired behavior.
