What I have come to call gentle horsemanship is actually a set of principles - an ethical code - for interacting with animals.

Suffolk Punch Draft Horse on a Bob-sled.
Winter, our quiet time, is a time we use to keep our horses tuned up, and ready to work as instructors in our Montana Workhorse Workshops.
We have had snow here at home since mid-December so we get to put the horses on sleds and sleighs, and in some cases, change out the wheels (for example on the fore cart) for runners. Here, Doc has Ann, one of our Suffolk Punch Draft horse mares on small feed sled.
This sled, is great with a small load and a single horse.
We love all seasons in Montana, and especially enjoy Montana's long snowy winters. This time of tranquility gives us another set of opportunities (besides the fair weather and ranch work of summer )to enjoy driving and working with our horse partners.
