In Ranch Horsemanship with Curt Pate, the clinician, shows the reader how the working cowboy's methods develop a safer mount who's a pleasure to ride anywhere. His vitamin-C, rather penicillin, approach, Pate explains, is preventive horsemanship that helps riders prepare themselves and their horses step-by-step for whatever they might encounter in the round pen, arena, pasture and beyond. The starting point is an overview of the ranch horse's lifestyle, which provides a point of reference for the techniques that follow.

Part two addresses cowboy horsemanship and six important transitions. The ability to make upward and downward transitions, move the hindquarters left and right, and move the forehand left and right are the building blocks necessary to perform advanced maneuvers, such as rollbacks and lead changes. These six transitions also are the basis for maneuvering uphill and down through natural obstacles and for dealing with manmade obstacles, such a gates, bridges, and bikers, as addressed in "Practical Applications."

Next Pate helps the reader transfer his or her knowledge of working a horse afoot to cattle work. Even though he or she might never rope more than a bucket, Pate also walks them through rope-handling basics because that, too, is useful in developing a quiet, well-rounded mount.

The book's final selection relates how using these techniques can help children become safer, more confident riders and how cowboys use the same methods in ranch competitions. Do-it-yourself tips throughout the book give practical advice on adapting ranch-training techniques to the reader's acreage, whatever its size.

From the Back Cover:

Not every rider yearns to start a colt or participate in a world championship show. Yet most riders want to improve their horsemanship and their horses' performances by helping them become well-broke, seasoned, and versatile mounts, just as many ranch horses are.
Ranch Horsemanship tells how almost any rider at almost any level of expertise can adapt ranch-horse-training techniques to help his mount become a safer, more enjoyable ride. Curt's step-by-step methods offer a hands-on and in-your-own-time approach well-suited for most recreational riders. His ideas help prepare you and your horse for whatever you might encounter in the round pen, arena, pasture and beyond.
Curt's staring point is an overview of "Ranch Horses and Their Work," which provides a point of reference for the techniques that follow.
The "Cowboy Horsemanship" section addresses six important transitions. The ability to make upward and downward transitions, move the hindquarters left and right, and move the forehand left and right are the building blocks necessary to perform any advanced maneuver, such as a side-pass or a lead change. These six transitions also are the basics for maneuvering up- and downhill, approaching natural obstacles and dealing with manmade obstacles, such a gates or bridges, as addressed in the "Practical Applications section."
In the fourth section, "Rope- and Cattle-Handling Basics," Curt helps you transfer your working-a-horse-afoot knowledge to cattle work. Even though you might never rope more than a bucket, Curt also walks you through rope-handling basics because that, too, is useful in developing a quiet, well-rounded mount.
The book's final section, "Ranch Kids and Competitive Cowboys," relates how using these techniques can help children become safer, more confident riders and how cowboys use the same methods in ranch competitions.
Do-it-yourself tips throughout Ranch Horsemanship give practical advice on adapting ranch-training techniques to your acreage, whatever its size.

About the Author:

Since the early 1990s, Montana-raised Curt Pate has used the skills and horse-training techniques he learned as a ranch cowboy as an equine clinician, and his experience as a rodeo announcer and auctioneer only help his presentation delivery. Curt's horsemanship, colt-starting, and working-ranch presentations are popular at horse fairs, public and private clinics, and guest ranches nationwide because he adapts his ranch experience to serve any rider desiring self-improvement and a well-broke mount. He and his family now live in Montana.
