Ranch Academy uses a natural progression to start colts and people in the never ending learning path of the ranching traditions.
Drew and Natalia still do all their ranch jobs on horseback like branding cattle, doctoring, fixing fences or pack tripping up and down the hills and into the wild country of the Alps. They like solid and quiet horses with some athletic abilities that can let them be good on the range and in the arena. Confident well broke horses with a solid foundation are what they give to people in terms of teaching and schooling.
