Justice went from wild to trick horse in 28 days. Tip Trainer Chelsie and Justice taking a bow.
ADOPTED Justice, 4 year old, Gelding

      Justice is a 14.3 hand, 4 year old gelding who was captured in Reveille, Nevada herd. He was born in 2009 in the wild on BLM land. As a yearling in 2010 he was captured with his Dam and entered into the BLM holding facility where he has been patiently waiting to be adopted.
         On April 2, 2013 Tip Trainer Chelsie Coulombe searched threw hundred of BLM Mustangs to find Justice. Why she choose him? Justice is a compact, stout, and athletic gelding. He is extremely correct, 100% sound, excellent hooves, fantastic movement, and carries himself in a beautiful natural frame. His dun marking are fancy with a dorsal stripe, white hind sock and defined black mane, tail and legs. As if this wasn't enough, he also came with a loving personality and soft eye.

What is he like now and how's his gentling going?

DAY 1, April 3, 2013 - Justice immediately took to liking the horse trailer, if he felt unsure he would walk back into it on his very own and hang out for a while and come back out on his own to explore again. As expected, he was not too trusting of people, not wanting to approach. Took things very slow and did some basic round pen work getting him to move off the trainers signals. He responded favorably and we ended on a good note with that, allowing him to relax for the evening.

DAY 2, April 4, 2013 - Let him continue to relax through the day. In the early evening worked with him to trust people and come to trainer and start leading. This was very successful and we were surprised how quickly he excelled to bonding with people. Trainer also tested him, seeing if he was spooky by allowing our dogs to roam about, kids play around him, and dirt bike riding near him. Justice didn't even flinch an eye as he watched intently wanting to join the fun. We ended day 2 on this good note and allowed him to go back to eating.

DAY 3, April 4, 2013 - Justice had several lessons today. Chelsie worked on desensitizing and leading over obstacles. He was a trooper and rarely got nervous at any obstacles. If you notice Chelsie also started on side passing with Justice on a bridge. All on his own, Justice 95% of the time squares perfectly when he stops. He is extremely brave and the video shows Justice going through the obstacles for the first time ever. Justice is allowing Chelsie to touch him increasing more every day and he is very curious.

DAY 4, April 5, 2013 - No video today, just reinforcing everything that Justice has been learning and keeping him happy and relaxed with an easy day of positive reinforcement. Justice has shown incredible accomplishments from being completely wild only four days ago, just think what you could accomplish with Justice after several months of training.

DAY 5, April 6, 2013 - Justice is such a character, he likes to sleep in the horse trailer at night and lay in the shavings. Chelsie worked with him on unfamiliar and unnatural objects that move in the wind. He was curious and pushed the ball once or twice and then investigated everything else. He did seem to impressed with our selection of the usually scary things that horses are frightened of and was surprisingly brave. Chelsie trotted him around a bit and he has an impressive working and extended trot.

DAY 6, April 7, 2013 - Justice learned how to pony today and also learned to flex, bend and release from pressure. Justice showed no aggression towards the horse introduced in his training today, He's moving along fast with his gentling.

DAY 7, April 8, 2013 - No video today, it was extremely windy today. There was 80 mph gusts of wind and it was cold and unfriendly. Justice being the character that he is used his smarts and decided to stay inside the horse trailer. All morning he watched dirt blow by the trailer as he sunbathed and snoozed comfortably inside. Chelsie went to work on reinforcement of previous lessons and Justice just looked at her as if she was crazy, that there was no way he was going to leave the comfort of the horse trailer. Chelsie just ignored him and started cleaning and moving things in the round pen and Justice's curiosity got the best of him as he moseyed out of the trailer going over to Chelsie wanting a head itching and see what she was doing. Chelsie then worked with on reinforcement of previous gentling.

DAY 8,
April 9, 2013 - Justice has an ADOPTER in process of finalizing paperwork with BLM. Once ADOPTION is finalized, Justice's new owner has hired Chelsie to continue working with Justice for the next three to four months to make him a ride-able ranch horse. From there Justice will be moving to the Lone Star State of Texas where he will live out the rest of his life with his new loving owners. We will continue to post his progress, just not daily, sign up on at the bottom of our web site home page to get updates and receive newsletters on upcoming Mustang's that Chelsie has chosen for gentling and adoption.

DAY 9, April 10, 2013 - Still waiting for BLM approval for the ADOPTION of Justice. Worked on reinforcement.

Day 10, April 11, 2013 - Still waiting for BLM approval for the ADOPTION of Justice. Took Justice for a walk to different areas of the ranch, he did well.

DAY 11, April 12, 2013 - Still waiting for BLM approval for the ADOPTION of Justice. Worked with Justice without a lead rope today. He has learned body language commands. He follows, stops and backs without touching him or using a lead rope. Justice is super smart, curious and a ladies man.


DAY 15, April 16, 2013 - ADOPTION FINALIZED -Justice has been moved into the barn and a 12x12 stall. He bravely went over the rubber mats and happily went into his new stall where he quickly became friends with the other horses. He just loves stall bedding (shavings) he rolls in them and snuggles up. We were worried that he wouldn't like the confined area but our worried were not warranted he likes being in close quarters, attention, and being spoiled like a show horse.

DAY 20, 21
TIP Trainer Chelsie has been hired to continue training with Justice for the next 3-4 months. Justice will be staying at FSEC for his training and has become a citizen, loves the barn and human contact. He is doing extremely well. 

UPDATE ON JUSTICE - APRIL 30, 2013 - Justice's new owner has him in full training with Chelsie for the next 3-4 months. Justice is such a ham and willing to learn. Justice has learned to bow - the purpose of teaching Justice to do this is to help with flexibility, and becoming completely trusting of his handler and it's really cool to have a horse that bow's!  - if you notice Chelsie is not using any ropes, whips, halters or lead ropes to get Justice to bow and trusting her. Also introducing Justice to things he may experience while on trail so once Chelsie breaks him to ride he will be relaxed when coming across these types of situations. Hard to believe Justice was completely wild 28 day ago.

Getting Justice familiar with weight on his back and having Chelsie higher than him.

May 16-17, 2013
Justice is allowing Chelsie to easily put the pads onto his back. Chelsie has Justice used to being higher than him and resting her leg onto Justice's back when she is sitting on fence.
Justice was falling asleep he was so relaxed during this session.

MAY 21, 2013
Justice wore his saddle for the first time. He stayed happy, calm, cool and collected. Chelsie will be working on this several more times until he is completely comfortable and then she will mount him sometime next week when he is ready. What an enjoyable boy! Watch for his video next week - hope to be up and riding.

May 27, 2013
Have saddle on and cinched. getting Justice used to weight in the stirrups. When you watch the video this is what Mustang training is about, you can go from quiet to explosive in a blink of an eye. Will start again tomorrow.

JULY 1, 2013
Justice went on his first trailer ride and did fantastic. He calmly walked in the trailer with Chelsie and started eating as we closed the doors. He stood quietly as we towed Justice across town. When Justice was walked out of the trailer into his temporary new environment he walked calmly and was looking around surveying his new surrounding. Justice was taken to another local ranch until his owner is ready to continue his training.
