WHAT WILL MY HORSE LEARN?
In the Foundational Education Program your horse will learn all of the CWH Foundation skills that will serve them throughout the rest of their lives. Our priority is to ensure your horse is safe, enjoyable to be around and ride as well as confident and proficient in their education. The CWH Training Horse Program is for those seriously committed to their horse’s education. The skills on the ground and under saddle that your horse will learn is the exact same foundation Colton instills in each of his higher level performance horses that exemplify what it means to have an education built on a solid foundation.
THIS PROGRAM IS NOT FOR EVERYONE
The CWH Training Program is for owners who want confident, willing, trustworthy horses that they can enjoy in and out of the arena and who are dedicated to developing their own knowledge, skills and understandings.
(For All Horse Owners)
This is a 90 Day Program where your horse will learn the fundamental skills mentally, physically & emotionally to navigate their lives with trust in their human leader. They will develop control of their own body & mind and deep understanding, willingness and confidence in what is asked of them. Their education will be developed in and out of the arena ensuring diverse experiences for a deeply rooted education.
(By Invitation Only)
By invitation only, the second level of our Training and Development Curriculum focuses on the Intermediate groundwork and ridden exercises as well as classical in-hand work. More emphasis is put on softening and suppling the horse’s five body parts: head and neck, poll, shoulders, ribcage and hindquarters. The training session is approximately 90 days in length.
(Selected By Colton)
After completing the Intermediate training, horses are selected by Colton to continue their training and will be taught the Advanced level exercises. This third level is all about finessing the control you have of your horse on the ground and under saddle. Your horse will spend approximately 90 days in the Advanced Training and Development Program.

Training In and Out of the Arena
Your horse will develop the knowledge and tools to safely and confidently work in the round pen, arena, and outdoors both on the ground and under saddle. Our comprehensive round pen, ground work, and ridden programs are designed to help you horse advance mentally, physically, and emotionally through a curriculum designed for focus, relaxation, awareness, and a willing partnership.
On the Job Application
Based on your horse's intended discipline, they will be introduced to a variety of obstacles and environments that will allow them to put their knowledge to work through practical application. We strongly believe in giving your horse the opportunity to learn through fun and engaging activities such as jumps, gates, logs, water, bridges, tarps, etc that help them build confidence and understanding.
WHAT'S INCLUDED IN MY HORSE'S TRAINING?
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
"Colton was FABULOUS with my horse! My horse was there for a year and came home a completely new horse! The care is 100% and choices were made with the horse's best interest in mind. My horse's diet was continually adjusted to find the perfect plan. His skin issues were looked after, as well as other health concerns. I knew my horse was in totally knowledgeable hands with Colton and his wife. This is not a standard place where horses go through the motions of being worked and forgotten. Personalized attention is adhered to! Colton takes pride in each horse he works with and he not only teaches and influences the horses, he also opens up himself to see what the horse has to teach him. He listens to the horses and makes each one a personal journey. I guarantee he is not on your horse thinking about his plans for the weekend. He is totally engaged and mindful and present with each horse. Every horse deserves to be with someone who is truly with them in return. Colton also works with the horses on every little small detail throughout the day. -instilling good behaviors all around. My horse returned to me with better manners, more patience, a better outlook on his life as a show horse, and he was amazing under saddle. Forward, sensitive, flexible, supple, balanced, and willing! I would recommend Colton to start a baby for any discipline, big horse tune-ups, and definitely for horses who need help finding a better outlook or for those who have serious issues that need addressed. I am very happy!"
