4-Year-Old with 60 Days Heading | Practice Session

Tate Kirchenschlager works on an up-and-coming, 4-year-old head horse. He focuses on softening the horse’s face and sides in the warm-up, and follows it up with an emphasis on creating positive run experiences for the young horse. In the runs, Tate is careful to draw a line between asking for more and asking for too much.
