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.

Equine Piroplasmosis - What Is It and Why Should I Care? -- Cooperative Extension System

Equine Piroplasmosis - What Is It and Why Should I Care? -- Cooperative Extension System | Horse and Rider Awareness | Scoop.it

@FranJurga writes: We had a little bit of a frost here in Massachusetts and people are cheering because the danger of the two primary mosquito-borne diseases--Eastern Equine Encephalitis and West Nile Virus--may have died along with our tomato plants.

 

But one thing that probably hasnt died is the ticks in the grass and woods.

 

Lyme disease is a big problem here for horses and humans, both, but that is merely the most well-publicized tick-borne disease.

 

In other parts of the United States, equine piroplasmosis is a problem, and it could spread to more parts of the United States. When an outbreak in Texas centered on a single large ranch, it became obvious that those horses could be traveling all over the USA.

 

Extension.org has an excellent basic article that will make you hate and fear ticks even more than you already do.

Walker, Dyson and Murray Research the Effect of the Pessoa Training Aid on the Working Trot | eurodressage | Horse and Rider Awareness | Scoop.it

Researchers Vicki Walker, Sue Dyson and Rachel Murray of the Animal Health Trust in Newmarket studied the effect of the Pessoa Training Aid on temporal, linear and angular variables of the working trot.

 

The Pessoa Training Aid (PTA) is commonly used for training and rehabilitation, yet there has been little research into its mechanism of action. The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of a PTA on stride characteristics of forelimbs and hindlimbs at working trot.

It shouldn't happen to a farrier - Horse & Hound | Roland's nags and nails blog

It shouldn't happen to a farrier - Horse & Hound | Roland's nags and nails blog | Horse and Rider Awareness | Scoop.it

The life of a farrier’s apprentice is one huge learning curve. I find that things need to happen two or three times before they start to sink in as there’s just so much to take on board.

 

@hoofcarejournal writes: Roland has done it again! Or why you need to keep an eye on the horseowner's dogs when your shoeing box is out of the truck!

 

I'm looking forward to Roland's book, should he write one, and have already suggested to him that his blog could be collected into an instant bestseller!
