I love social media. It’s actually my day job. I watch social media for trends, analyze those trends, try and duplicate those trends so that my company gains the right kind of traction. Naturally, I’m a millennial, so I love my social media platforms for personal usage...

This is a popular debate when it comes to jumping. In some worlds, we hear coaches preaching “seeing”your spot for takeoff. In others, it’s preached to let the jump come to you and let the horse figure it out. Both of these opinions are right and really, at the end of...

I was teaching a lesson recently that reminded me of something I do not often speak on nor teach. It’s the concept of disciplining your horse during a particularly difficult ride. As humans, we are driven to seek perfection. When we are taking a lesson, we are hoping t...

I absolutely love this exercise for every level of horse. It hits so many nails on the head for your training that you don’t need to drill it for too long.

Let’s start by taking a gander at our old friend, The German Training Scale.

What a beauty. Am I right? This scale...

I’m a fan of gridwork. Poles are your friend. I never really see a reason to practice “height” with horses until they have a solid foundation on their groundwork, flatwork, and polework. Even with my upper level mounts, I always make sure I do more of these types of ex...
