Individual Lessons With Doug Mills
Many online training programs provide access to a database of video content and articles, but they do not offer individual coaching without signing up for private virtual lessons. We have built a program that takes you on a 50-week journey to teach you how to communicate with your horse, fix common problems, and learn advanced techniques. You will have weekly quizzes and submit a video of you performing the new skill to Doug Mills for coaching feedback. Once you receive feedback, you will continue to work to fix the problems and submit videos until you have mastered the new skill - making our program a personal trainer to help you be successful.
Whether you are starting colts, improving your performance horse, riding the trails, or starting with your first horse, we work to help you reach your individual riding goals.
50 weekly online progressive training exercises developed by Doug Mills in a step-by-step lesson plan. Customized paths for beginners to elite riders - including downloads, assessments, guides, and more.
One-on-one weekly feedback sessions with Doug Mills for specific problems. Submit a video of you performing the new skill for review and continue working with Doug until you master the skill.

"Doug's Way: As my horse and I rode the trails of life, some led to fun, and some led to strife 'til I met a man along the way, that said to me "there's a better way." I stopped to listen, and his words rang true, so I said, "could you teach me what to do?" He showed me the round pen and gave me the chance to practice the turns and steps of the dance. I learned about angle, pressure, and timed release, too, about how to slow down and give precise cues. He tempered my hand to keep my discipline just. He taught me the method of "Training Thru Trust." "
"Hi Lynette and Doug, I just wanted to say thank you again for the clinic at Still Meadows Ranch last weekend. This was such an amazing clinic and you two are the absolute best! I have no experience with training and I never felt judged or embarrassed with my lack of knowledge. Now I an confident in myself to train and correct behavior and feel like I have a good understanding of how to communicate with my horse. Thank you for teaching me how to do this!! I can't wait to grow with Duke and I look forward to our next clinic!"
"In the last two years, I have attended two clinics in Switzerland lead by Kyle, I own all of your DVD's and am really happy with all the great results I have achieved with your training. I am convinced this is the best training to work with horses. Probably the biggest value of your training material (compared to any other…) is that whatever you demonstrate in your DVD's is always with green, young, untrained horses and this is the best I've ever seen. How can I learn something while watching perfectly trained horses who have done every exercise about a thousand times? Even more helpful are the small booklets which I always have with me while working with horses. Extremely helpful, easy to follow. Absolutely perfect! Thanks for this great material!!!"

A step by step progressive training program that teaches you everything you need to know to clearly communicate to any horse and reach your and your horse's highest potential as well as any other horse you ever touch.

Each exercise is designed to gain soft and willing body control of your horse while teaching you timing and feel, which is ultimately communication to a horse. This is not simply an online library of all the lessons Doug has ever done. The video is showing you the exact steps in the exact order. There are short quizzes to be sure you understand the lesson; that's the first step. Then you complete the lesson.
