Have you ever asked these questions?
How do I ask for the collection?
What do I need to do with my hands and body (aids)?
What do I need to do to prepare/condition my horse to be able to perform it?
Do you wonder where to begin?
Do you dream of increasing your communication skills with your horse?
Have you heard that collection can make your horses gaits smoother to ride? (yep, it's true!)
Do leg yields, side passing, half pass and lead changes seem unattainable or just out of reach?
In this course, Stacy Westfall will show you that it IS possible.
Mastery of the basics creates success.
Using her step by step approach, Stacy will show you techniques, patterns and exercises she uses to improve communication, develop collection and prepare for lead changes.
"But I could never..."
Sometimes big goals like teaching collection or teaching a flying lead change seem unattainable....
I knew you'd be thinking that, so I have enlisted the help of several students who you will see demonstrating their own training, mistakes and all!
In this course you will watch a rider, Colleen, as she learns these techniques and patterns for the first time.
Colleen had never trained a horse to do lead changes.
Her horse Fiona had never done flying lead changes.
During this course you will watch Colleen teach Fiona to change leads!
Colleen is proof that if you want to learn something, you seek the knowledge, and you are willing to put in the time…you can do it.
What are you waiting for?
