How does it work?

1. 8 weeks of video support through Coach Now 

2. Weekly live zoom training webinars with Q&A Friday

  • 8 weeks of all brand new lessons breaking down each of the 7 steps to help you truly understand your horse and how to use your body to clearly communicate with them.
  • Exercises that you can work on mastering without your horse in order to better your timing and feel, so when you get to your horse - your mind and body are clear on what you have to do, you only have to read your horse and let them tell you how long each command lasts.
  • Month one will be about learning how to master the understanding application of your prep, angle, pressure and taps and putting those together properly, practicing the tap technique and whip handling and all of the little but important how to's!
  • Following this will be a live training and Q&A to ensure everyone has grasped everything. We will also review the content of the month ahead.
  • Month two will be more about theory and helping you understand the timed release, restart and you patterns. These are the the exercises that help us understand how to keep our horses motivated to do the right thing and how to be a clear communicator. Being sure your commands are saying what you want them to say. Understanding these fully will give you the answers to how to teach your horse anything you want when applied with all of these 7 steps, your only job will be to continue to practice them, be slower and clearer with our pressure and better timing on our release, these things will never stop growing and advancing, it only takes understanding them and starting to apply them to get instant results, and your never ending journey starts there!
