Welcome to The Colt StarterSM website!
The Colt Starter natural horse training method comes from equine psychology with common sense communication techniques. Our goal is to create a sound foundation for every young horse – whether destined to be a Grand Prix jumper or trail mount. Better communication between horse and rider through basic exercises is a key to help the horse be a more respectful, enjoyable mount. We want all horse owners at all experience levels, and other specialized trainers that may later work with the horse, to have successful harmonious partnerships, without force. Our goal is to help horses and owners enjoy their time together, and achieve the owners’ objectives.
In 2013 The Colt Starter stopped riding professionally and this Spring has begun showing as an Amateur. Wilhelmina still works with horses, and if you need assistance with your mount she is working with another trainer Stephanie Gershon.
One of the results from The Colt Starter training method, is that your horse learns confidence and respect by learning to work with humans, to do what you ask – when you ask. Your horse will be quieter, more obedient, and confident in himself and you, as the handler/rider.
