“The First Week” DVD

A must have DVD collection to own before starting a young horse.

“I think it’s real important for colts to get a good start,” Jim Neubert says. “It’s going to be the foundation for the rest of their lives – a framework.”

In “The First Week” 7-Disc DVD Set, Jim and his father, Bryan Neubert,  got together with Joe Wolter to start twenty-head of colts for the legendary Four Sixes Ranch in Guthrie, Texas for their first week of handling.

Dr. Glenn Blodgett manages the horse division of the Four Sixes Ranch and is  responsible for hiring the ranch’s colt starters.

“They are very fast, efficient and productive in colt starting,” he says. “Some people could spend months doing what they could do in a few days.

“They’d ride all the top fillies,” Dr. Blodgett explains, “and some stallion prospects. Their work helped us identify the better horses.”

Whether your colt has been handled since birth, or you’ve just pulled him off the range, these cowboys-turned-clinicians offer practical, gentle methods.

In this DVD set, you’ll learn the correct way to teach a young horse his firsts, setting a good foundation for the rest of his life. You’ll learn how to teach him:

  • Catching
  • Haltering
  • Leading
  • Saddling
  • First ride

Also be ready to learn about many other basics from the horsemanship clinicians such as:

  • Riding
  • Hobbling
  • Feet handling
  • Trailer loading
  • Cow-working
  • Gate opening

The First Week” is an exceptionally unique horsemanship video, shot entirely at the famed Four-Sixes Ranch. Celebrated horsemen, Bryan Neubert, Joe Wolter, and Jim Neubert, came together and were filmed as things unfolded while starting twenty head of American Quarter Horse colts for the Four-Sixes. This video is an unscripted look at the work of these three renowned professionals as they go through the first catching, haltering, leading, saddling, and first rides on these young horses all in the course of “The First Week” of working with them.

Additional insights on riding, roping, riding out, hobbling, feet handling, trailer loading, cow-working, gate opening, and a whole lot more surface in the extensive time you’ll spend with these colts and cowboys at the south camp of the Four-Sixes.

More than seven hours of footage is included, with commentary provided by the horsemen both as things unfold on the ground, and with some additional remarks edited in later to help provide careful insights into what happens at various points with handling the colts.  The cowboys also share some of their personal stories in video interviews included in the set.
