CALENDAR AND EVENTS
RAFTER DIAMOND K LIVESTOCK
REGULAR WEEKLY "ROUTINE"

Our day starts about 7 am with morning feeding chores for the horses, then breakfast, coffee and
returning calls follows.  Between 8 am and 9 am or after 9 pm is the best time to reach Ken "live" on the
telephone.

Ken usually starts working with horses about 9 am.  This is a good time to watch Ken at work and get an
understanding of his philosophy.  Ken welcomes spectators and is always willing to explain what he is
doing and seeing.   While you are always welcome to drop in, his schedule is variable, so it is best to
call and book a time when you know he can interact with you.  

Evenings are generally occupied with lessons.  Again, you are welcome to drop in and watch, but
because our lesson program is unique and not routine, you should probably call first to find out what is
happening before you show up.

CURRENT ADDITIONAL ACTIVITIES

MAKING OF A BRIDLE HORSE
-For committed riders only.  This course runs every second weekend.   With a maximum of 3
riders per group, and two groups per day, there will be 3 hours of work with your horse.  
Riders are encouraged to watch the session they are not riding in.  

Each session will start with a review of ground work and as the weeks progress the ultimate
goal is to take your horse through the snaffle bit to the hackamore, to the two rein and finally
straight up in a bridle.

This is not a drop in activity as it takes two to three years to begin to get a horse ready for the
signal bits used by true bridle horses.

Would love to have you along on the journey.
