Evaluation and Training

Ward of the Court has nice ground manners, and he’s spending four months with trainer Destiny Wilson to be started under saddle. She says, “In the future, I believe that he will be the ultimate western riding horse. He is currently not broke, however, after training, he will be one to watch. He is an incredible ranch riding, all around, and trail prospect.”
