60 Amazingly Achievable Lessons to Improve
You and Your Horse When Time Is Short
By Vanessa Bee
A new book especially written for the time-starved 21st-century horse owner! Do you day after day make a promise to train yourself and your horse to be better at something, but when you get to the barn there just doesn’t seem to be enough time? Don’t worry, what really matters is the quality of the training you do manage to fit in. It really is possible to carry out good quality, progressive training with a horse in only three minutes a day.

Educator and horse trainer Vanessa Bee’s “light bulb moment” was when she realized that if a training session had a realistic goal, every horse achieved the goal in under three minutes. This led her to create techniques appropriate for use in brief digestible lessons that ultimately produce significant gains in short sessions. This refreshing new method offers 35 ground exercises, 24 ridden exercises, and 25 “real world” exercises that will get you out and about with a safe, sane, well-trained horse.

Four Steps to Riding Success

Cyber Monday Sale! 15% Off Today Only!
by Karin Blignault
Karin Blignault has combined theory and experimentation to develop a system of training (and teaching) that is straightforward, fast, and brings real results. The methods described in this book teach riders to achieve rhythm, balance, suppleness, and the round flexor frame in their horses—and quickly. She believes that riders should learn to control the whole horse as soon as possible and uses four exercises to teach riders control of the horse's head, shoulders, ribcage, and hindquarters. The results are immediate. These exercises are the building blocks of the shoulder-in and the half halt, which are themselves the cornerstones of balanced riding, used to improve every movement in dressage and jumping. Riders and teachers of every level will find something here.

by Susanne von Dietze
The art of successful riding is the development of harmony to such a degree that, to the onlooker, the horse and rider perform in total unity. The rider's key to this ideal is not a static seat, but one that is capable of adapting to all movements of the horse. The closer the seat follows the movement, the better it can influence that movement and remain in perfect balance with the horse.
