About the Course
What is an 'Audio Ride Guide"?
Changing habits can be challenging. But gone are the days of trying to remember what the instructor said as you practice new techniques. With Stacy's Audio Ride Guides, you'll be coached through each technique while you practice riding the pattern she's taught you.
Great insight and an effective teaching style have made Stacy Westfall one of the most popular and sought-after clinicians in the horse industry.
