Making A Cowhorse
Reined Cow Horse is becoming one of the fastest growing events in the equine industry. Full of vaquero inspired tradition, the sport creates a well balanced horse that is broke and excels inside the show pen and out. Cody Patterson leads you through all aspects of training young horses preparing from their futurity year to a finished bridle horse. This series represents all of the cow work involved in the sport, while Cody’s other series Reining Fundamentals goes in depth into the reining.
