Sample Our Newsletter From "6 Easy Ways to Improve Your Training," Issue 32, part 1 of our FREE monthly newsletter
Re: information on horse training
This article: 6 horse training tips, each designed to simplify your training and make big changes fast.
Sometimes the best way to improve our riding isn't by learning some intricate exercise or by spending years or thousands of trainer-dollars to unravel the mysteries of some dark, mystical phenomena (such as "collection" or "throughness"), but rather by making a few small and simple corrections that can make "all the difference" in not months, weeks or years - but minutes. What follows then, are a handful of subtle changes you can make to improve your riding in short order. I'm a big believer in the concept that a "one percent improvement" each day means a one hundred percent improvement in just three months and ten days - so take heed, little changes add up to big improvements.
Your DIY guide to getting your horse trained: Groundwork, driving and riding
In this fully revised and updated edition of her best-selling book, Heather Smith Thomas sets you on the right path with training lessons that can be readily adjusted to suit your horse's unique personality. Thomas's techniques and methods can be applied to any horse, including children's ponies, Western trail-riding horses, English riding or jumping horses, working farm and ranch horses, and horses intended for showing or competition. This comprehensive guide covers everything you need to know to develop a well-trained horse, from ground work to galloping, and from choosing a bit to trailer training.

You do need an account to pay by check (or "echeck"). To pay by check either sign in to your PayPal account (on the page mentioned above) or go to PayPal.com and follow the simple process to create an account. (You'll find a button at the top of their page marked "Sign Up Now.") Note that signing up to pay by check will take a few days as PayPal verifies your account. Also note that PayPal will not allow me to send any products until your check clears (usually in about 5-6 days).
