This is my gift for horse people all over the world.  I realize you are looking for proven techniques to train both your horse and your students.  Now you do!  The Horse and Rider Awareness videos are homemade and follow the training progress of several horses and riders over the years.  They are live films taken in the actual training session so you can see what happens to real horses and riders.  There is no editing and I am filming as I coaching.  These techniques have been tested on 1000's of horses and riders and have also been used in instructor training and certification programs.

Leg Yield. Keeping the connection. Susan and Beau.

This is Susan Faulkner Evans and Beau working on the leg yield. Now that Beau if more comfortable moving sideways, we ask him to connect to the outside rein (stretching as he connects to Susan's legs) for the leg yields. As you will see, Beaus leg yields become much more connected as a result.

As always, we do not edit what we show you. This way, you can see what happens to real horses and riders as they go through the training process

Randi Thompson's insight:

Are you able to get your horse to stretch as they do a leg yield?  How can you do that?

Excellent advice on how to deal with influential people to get them to help you, from long-time technology analyst, blogger and startupper Marshall Kirkpatrick.


(Marshall has recently launched a new web app, that focuses exclusively on helping you find who is really influential in your areas of interest. The app is called Little Bird and you can go and request a free trial on the site.)


What he suggests is to invest in building long-time, high-value relationships, by using the tech tools like the one he's created, to get to know more about the people you are interested in, before you reach out to them.


The more you know who they know, what they like as well as what they have written and what brands and people they are not aware of, the easier it will be for you to reach out and provide useful information, insight and advice to them.



Rightful. Correct. 8/10

Training Level Walks. Susan Faulkner Evans and Mission Point (Beau)

"*Training Level Walks.  Is Your Horse Tracking Up?"*

This is Susan Faulkner Evans and Beau.  We are working on the quality of the walk for training level.  In this video you will see how we are able to get Beau to "Track up" more at the walks. This is when he steps into, and in front of the hoofprint of his front foot with the hindfoot on the same side.

In this video you will see how a rein that is just a little bit to short (for just a second!) can change the way a horse walks.

As always, we do not edit what we show you.  This way, you can see what happens to real horses and riders as they go through the training proces

Sometimes, it is the little things that make such a difference in how our horses can move...
