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.

The official replay of the Dressage Instructors Webinar #2.  Now you can enjoy a lively discussion on some super topics by watching this free webinar designed especially for you!

 
Randi Thompson's insight:
The official replay of the Dressage Instructors Webinar #2.

 In "From the Judges Box" we discussed the importance of instructors knowing how to teach their riders how to ride a straight line and exercises they could use. In "Teaching Techniques" We quickly found ourselves chatting about the importance of asking the right questions to make our lessons more interesting for our riders and as a way for us to determine all the time if they have control of their riding position and of the horse. Finally, in Horse Business #101 we go where many professionals in the horse world are afraid to go. Record Keeping. We share simple ideas that will get you started. Our Hosts were Jodi Lees Dressage and Randi Thompson. Our Moderator was Laura Kelland-May. Welcome to Dressage Instructors!
