I have been toying with the idea of breaking and training a longhorn steer to ride. Just for kicks, to ride in parades and other demonstrations. Can anyone out there help me with suggestons or names of people who may be able to help me get started.
Thank you kindly

Try Riding Steers
I think you will find what you want. Please try it. I started with steers 6 years ago without experience and enjoy it very much.

Definitely try ridingsteers.com
. It's the best site devoted to cows that I've found. If you have questions e-mail Jauson, the site moderater. She's very knowledgeable. She helped me decide on the right saddle for Mack my holstein ox. Or you could post a message on the message board and everybody will help you.

Gary Henry sells a video and nose bits. He uses longhorns.
see article at: Longhorn Steer Riding Rediscovered.
Me? I don't like horns. Always seem to be skewered by normal sized ones, so I don't even wanna try longhorns. However, if a person trained them like a motorcycle handlebar it would make for a cool way to control them and mount horn and beer holder.

Hi Ken P. Could you please send me your address or phone number so I can ask you some questions?

The web page you gave for ordering the video was the same URL as the article. I couldn't find the order page. Please repost the web address. Thank you, Gail

I should proof read stuff before sending.
This is a scan of his flyer
video and has phone/addy on the bottom,
but I would call to make sure it's still
this price, as it HAS been a while since
I got mine.

I am training a yak to ride. He is a bit squirrely but a lot of fun. A longhorn should be just as fun.

Sounds interesting-could you post a picture of you and the yak?? Thanks!

Yaks are good hiking buddies. They carry your stuff, they keep you company, and they protect u from what's out there.

We have a longhorn steer, Charlie, my grandaughter rides around the ranch. She doesn't like parade riding, only on her horse, she will.
