    Would like to converse on yak training. I am presently lead training two yak steers and one bull (2003 calves). My future objectives involve training the calves to be ridden.

    Try www.longhornshowcase.com you might have to sift through a bit of information but they have instructions for training to harness and training to ride.

    Thanks for the quick reply. The longhorn site is good. Yet, these guys need to be bonded from day 2 with bottle feeding. Otherwise it is a shear up hill battle. Strong herding instinct. They have to think of you as another yak.
