Roping Lesson with T4 Quarter Horses’ Breelyn Cowan: Setting Colts Up for Future Success
An audio lesson on reading colts in the round pen and putting a feel into them from the start with South Dakota cowgirl Breelyn Cowan of T4 Quarter Horses.

The Cowan family is credited for bringing us greats like Sun Frost and his son PC Frenchmans Hayday through their South Dakota Horse Program T4 Quarter Horses. Their program combines 50 years of breeding know-how with a solid, ranch-based start. Just recently, Trevor Brazile came across a brown mare from their program—registered as PC Ike Ike Baby—that he felt was too good not to go big time—so he quickly sold her to Clint Summers for his heading campaign. Brown Sugar carried Summers through RFD-TV’s The American and turned heads all winter until rodeo’s recent shut down.

Their program offers weanlings and ready-to-ride ranch horses, and Breelyn Cowan has a hand in every step of the process with her dad Tigh’s careful guidance. Today, she joins The Score to offer a fresh perspective on reading a horse in the round pen and feeling colts in the earliest stages of making a good one.
