John and Jamie Tilley of Tilley's Custom Colts and Horsemanship are a husband and wife team that specializes in starting and developing eager horses with a positive attitude. We offer a great program for the up and coming ranch horse, arena prospect or any discipline where a solid start is needed. We pride ourselves on the low stress manner in which the horses are handled, by working from where the horse is at and allowing them to build confidence. We believe in these principles and know they are real to the horse. We share these ideas with others in the Horsemanship Clinics and the Young Horse Handling Clinics that we offer.

In the horsemanship clinics we offer, we help people better understand what makes their horses operate. We work from the level of the riders and horses and advance as they are ready. We work from the ground up, from everyday important ground work and riding to problem solving.

Each clinic is individual depending on what the horses and the people need. A typical clinic may start with ground work, working on the hindquarters, moving the front end, getting the horse accepting to the flag, moving freely forward and back on the halter. We take these principles up to the saddle and advance them as the horses and people are ready. Any troubled or bothered horses will be addressed. This is also for the safety of the other horses and participants. Be prepared to be a spectator through sessions, as there is much to be learned through observing. At this time, your horse will be required to stand with you and in turn he learns patience and how to let down and relax. This is as beneficial to the observing horse as it is to the horse getting worked with.

In the Young Horse Handling Clinics we work on halter breaking these youngsters while maintaining the natural lightness and softness that the horse has to offer. Maintaining this lightness in the horse throughout their life is something we feel is really important to strive for. We take a group of colts that are unhandled and in a short time get them confident with the human. Our participants work on correct halter breaking, catching, going through obstacles, picking up feet, etc.

We are located in central Saskatchewan, approximately 150 Km east of Saskatoon near the town of Leroy. Our facility offers both indoor and outdoor arenas, round corral, large barn equipped with box and tie stalls, large turn out paddocks and cattle. Our facility is not only functional, but also safe. We also offer pasture and paddock board as well as farrier services.
