Mike Branch says that he heard a definition of leadership once that said: "leadership is all about getting people to do what you want you want them to do." Similarly is starting or training a horse, the goal is, to able to safely ride the horse, and to have it respond to the slightest of ques.
While this is all true, it is equally important to know and understand that it is largely about how you get there. The way Mike "gets there" with a horse is to develop a relationship through trust. Mike figured out years ago that if he could establish a leadership role based on character built trust, that he would not only be a leader to his horse, but that his horse would enjoy the bond as well.

Mike Branch starts a number of colts at the Flying B Ranch every year. There is usually a waiting list so sign up as soon as you can to get your colt on reserve for Mike to start.
Mike would like to have your colt for a minimum of two months, three months is preferred, four would be great. This will help to ensure that your colt has a solid foundation. Mike would also like to inform you that a few months is still a "green horse," it takes many hours for you to have a good solid well broke horse.
