Wild mustangs have been roaming the plains and kicking up dust for centuries. Here at Paws Up, we’re privileged to have the resources and facilities to not only welcome them into our hearts and our herd, but also to spend countless hours “gentling,” or desensitizing and training them. It takes a lot of hard work and patience to work with a wild animal unaccustomed to human interaction. It’s something most cattle ranches won’t consider taking on—and unlike anything any other resort offers. It’s a humbling experience to watch an animal transform from skittish to socialized, and we consider it an honor to share it with you.
You won't experience something like this in a typical dude ranch package. This activity is designed for groups who want to learn more about mustangs and the patience, dedication and strategy required to take them from wild to mild. Watch in wonder—outside the ring—as Equestrian Manager Jackie Kecskes “gentles” a mustang. See the process in action, as the horse responds to her every move and the pitch of her voice. In a time when immediate gratification isn’t fast enough, this demonstration is a powerful real-life example of the value of slowing down.
