Preview: Gerry Hansma: Working Three Year Olds on Flag and Cattle

Gerry works a couple of his three year olds in this four part series on the flag, before he works them on cattle to get the mechanics ironed out. In part one Gerry demonstrates how broke he wants his horses, by having control of the horse’s shoulders and making sure the horse engages his hind end.

Part 1
Gerry works the flag, and demonstrates how broke he wants his horses and explains why he likes to work them on a straight line, to allow him to assess what caliber horse he has got!
Part 2
Gerry works the same three year old on cows and is not concerned if his horse is a little late with the turn around, because he is more concerned at this time of the year (Feb) with keeping the stop and turn correct.
Part 3
Gerry works another three year old on the flag that is a little heavy on the front end. He demonstrates how he likes to see his horses bend at the poll, round the back out which helps them engage their hindquarters.
Part 4
Gerry works cows, and wants to see this horse get to the bottom of the stop first before she goes with the cow because she is a naturally cowy horse. He mentions that cowy horses have a tendency to want to stay up in a cow too much, so you have to get them across that cow a little more.

How I got started: We’ve always been into horses, we did a lot in the 4H and youth quarter horse. Then we started playing around with working cow horses and we gravitated to cutting.
