Q. I have purchased other training videos. I’m disappointed because the training demonstrations only show horses that already know how to work. You never see the horses make any mistakes. I know “my” horse isn’t going to perform perfectly like that. Do your videos follow the same theme or do they show more?
A. They show a lot more. The whole idea behind my videos is to show you how to take a horse that doesn’t know how to stop, spin, change leads or work a cow and teach him to do it. And yes, you’ll see everything, even the mistakes.
Q. Most of my friends are experienced riders and can get their horses to work pretty good. I feel like an idiot sometimes because I just can’t seem to get my horse to work as well as theirs. They even make the occasional wise crack about my horse’s limitations. It’s frustrating. Could your videos help me?
A. If you want to learn and are willing to work at it, then yes, most definitely. Actually, unless your friends are professional trainers, you can learn enough from the videos to ride rings around them. However, you are going to have to apply yourself. All the information you need to become a top hand is in the videos, but you are going to have to practice.
A. I think so. As a professional trainer you ride many different horses that vary in mental and physical capability. My videos show several different techniques specifically for that reason. At the very least, you’ll learn effective ways of teaching your students the principals of reining.
Q. I’m a disciple of natural horsemanship and really don’t want to use any equipment or training methods that are abusive. Is it possible to teach a horse to slide and spin with just a snaffle bit? If so, do your videos show how?
A. Yes, it is possible to teach horses to slide and spin with just a snaffle. High performance training methods don’t have to be abusive to be effective. All successful training is based on timing with pressure and the release of pressure as a reward for responding. My videos show horses being schooled in snaffles, curb bits and a couple other pieces of training equipment. However, the principles are the same no matter what equipment you use. Remember, it is the rider’s hands that dictate the amount of pressure and the severity of any piece of equipment.
Q. Mostly I’ve done nothing but trail riding. Now I’d like to put some handle on my horses. The problem is I don’t have a clue how to do it. Will your videos give me enough information to actually get this done?
A. Absolutely. That’s why I confidently offer the six-month money-back guarantee.
Suggestions For Getting The Most Out Of These Videos
You are obviously serious about getting good at training your horse or you wouldn’t be reading this. So I want to clue you in on how to get the best results from these videos… Get all the videos at the same time!
Here’s why: Some of the techniques you’ll learn in the spinning and lead change videos will improve your horse’s stops. And, many of the techniques you’ll learn in the stopping videos will help your rollbacks and spins. The methods used to train horses are synergistic. Each individual technique has an affect on all the maneuvers. Here’s a good example of this: In the lead change video I demonstrate a method for lowering a horse’s head so he looks prettier while loping.
Well, when you Apply that method, it also has the beneficial side effect of improving head position for stops and spins. And there are many more examples of a particular maneuver being improved by a technique that was intended for an entirely different maneuver.
That’s why it’s so important to get all the videos and study them at the same time. And apply all the different techniques. If you’ll do that, there’s a good chance you’ll end up training a horse that you will be very proud to own.
In closing I’d just like to say, I hope you take advantage of my training videos. My goal here is to help you get more enjoyment and satisfaction from riding your horse. I wish you much success. Thank you.
