Western Equine Center
at HorseWorks Wyoming
The Western Equine Center (WEC) at HorseWorks Wyoming introduces enthusiasts, whether entering equine-related professions who want in-depth, hands-on experience, or more experienced equestrians, to the world of Western horse training. Buying your first horse? Attend as a Spectator to learn more about the in's and out's of horse ownership before taking the plunge.
As the great horseman, Pat Wyse, says, "When you're horseback, you're either training or untraining."
This applies any time you are around your horse, whether you're on the ground, or in the saddle! So, the more exposure you have to more horses of different ages, dispositions, backgrounds, breeds, and experience levels, the more you will be training instead of untraining. More importantly, the more aware you'll be of when you are training and untraining. Given the broad range of colts and horses with which we'll be working, that exposure is the Western Equine Center difference!
Participant or Spectator
Join WEC sessions as a Participant, or a Spectator, as we focus on training our ranch-raised colts! The spring, summer, and fall small-group, intensive, three-week sessions emphasize training techniques with a variety of horses from weanlings to two-to-five year olds of various personalities and in various stages of training. Participants are immersed in horsemanship appropriate to their experience level on the ground and horseback, including round pen work, ground driving, packing, and trail rides.
A Typical Week
There's something for everyone at Western Equine Center, but is the intensity of the training right for you? Read about a Typical Week then let us know your thoughts, concerns, and goals.
Regardless of your initial reasons for coming, whether travelling solo or with others, whether a Participant, or a Spectator, get acquainted with the West, the horses, the ranch, the people, and the opportunities that horses can open up for you!
We'll show you the natural horsemanship training skills we use to train our horses and foals that make them into outstanding trail & ranch horses!
Safety & Confidence
Safety is our priority. Confidence building of horse and Participant is our objective. Training our ranch-raised horses is our focus.
