Simply Haltering
Kalley Krickeberg

On the surface, teaching a young horse to halter and lead appears to be a simple, elementary process. However, in practice, getting the results you want can be a little “wild and wooly” and carry the risk of a weanling or yearling flipping over if you don’t know how to achieve consistent results in an effective – and safe – manner. In this essential skills DVD, Kalley Krickeberg teaches you simple and efficient strategies to develop a lifelong pattern of lightness and keep you and your young horse out of the “wild and wooly” zone!

With Simply Haltering, Kalley illustrates techniques proven to effectively catch, halter and lead young yearlings or weanlings, including the importance of proper angles and how to build a positive pattern of lightness off the halter.

As a master young horse developer, Kalley understands that no two horses are the same and that truly there is no “one size fits all” training method. However, a universal understanding of angles, proper visualization and proper timing of pressure and its’ release can rapidly accelerate results with ANY young horse once you have those arrows in your quiver.

“This DVD covers a situation a lot of people find themselves in: working with young horses that are too old for foal handling, but have yet to be halter broken,” Kalley says. “The horses I work with on the DVD have been around humans before, but have no haltering experience and no understanding of halter pressure. You’ll see how to work with an easy-going, calm colt in one session, while the other session features a reactive, skeptical colt. You’re likely to experience both situations at some point, so I felt it was important to illustrate both ends of the spectrum.”

Throughout the training sessions, Kalley proves to be a deeply intellectual and practical teacher. Working with a multitude of young horses has instilled in Kalley a sense of patience, calmness and resourcefulness while teaching young horses and their owners alike.

“I don’t believe in breaking something, just so I can fix it later.” says Kalley, “I like to go about things in a practical manner that gets the job done without creating any more work than it should. For instance, if I can just walk up to a colt and slide the halter on, I will – no need to burst their bubble and run them around just for something to do that isn’t related to the outcome you are actually after. I hope Simply Haltering helps people get these first critical ‘feels’ put into their young horses, so they can appreciate how amazing horses can be – how light they can be and how hard they can try for you from the very start.”
