Think Like a Mustang Trainer

Learn from the experienced insights of a Mustang pro to work with any horse.
Trainer Annie MacDermaid has built a partnership with Cisco, an 8-year-old Mustang, by using a clear, kind, firm and fair approach.

Last month, trainer Annie MacDermaid shared tips on how to select an American Mustang to bring home to your herd. This month, she shares the steps she takes to take a horse from wild to mild.

Since 2014, MacDermaid has trained and placed close to 300 Mustangs. Over the years, she has gained valuable training experience that can be applied to a wild horse just off the range or the domestic horse in your pasture.

| A Strong Foundation |

As a Mustang Trainer Incentive Program (TIP) trainer, MacDermaid’s job is to train Mustangs from the BLM pens so they can be safely handled on the ground before being adopted.

MacDermaid believes in laying a strong foundation of groundwork so they are ready to be trained for any discipline under saddle.

“Building a good foundation on a horse is like building a foundation on a house: if you skip blocks or leave holes, your foundation will crumble,” she says. “But if you take your time and build the foundation properly, the horse will have something to fall back on when faced with difficulty or uncertainty.”
