The Benefits

It is fundamental to be well prepared, confident and safe for the filming and scripted action, for the success of your project. As your personal experienced animal handler, we highly encourage this interaction during the pre-production stage.

We welcome any of our clients, acting agents or talent, to come to the ranch and work through any training they may need. We can help our clients learn how to harness, hitch and drive mules or horses pulling a wagon or carriage, or simply become familiar, and natural around an animal. learning to saddle a horse, or training for extraordinary action scenes, our wranglers are here to help guide you safely, to create the result your production is looking for.
