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.

"Are you bumping your horse in the mouth? How to keep a light rein in the trot canter transitions"

"Have you noticed that your hand "bumps" your horse in the mouth when you are working on the canter? What about the canter transitions?" In this session Trud...
Randi Thompson's insight:

In this session Trudy focuses on keeping an even feel and connection with the reins at the canter.. Many riders start tightening their reins at the canter, especially in the transition up and down from it. Now you can watch as Trudy discovers how to use her legs and seat to keep Melody on her aids and soft on the reins.  Have you ever thought about how you are using your reins for the canter? What did you learn from this video?

Randi Thompson's insight:

Sometimes we wonder if our horses will ever move up to the next level. It does take time that is for sure. The good news is that you have been able to watch the training progress of our featured riders and their horses and can see the possibilities of what can happen with horses with issues and non professional riders. In this session we continue our focus on the "bend from behind the saddle" and have added the feeling of what Darriens trot could feel like by asking him to trot over the ground poles. What is most exciting for us is that now Darrien is breathing most of the time (instead of holding his breath) and is using his back much better. In fact now he is starting to swing more from his shoulders and hips which has created a new movement in his tro

Equine Extravaganza Equestrian Festival Presents Randi Thompson of Horse and Rider Awareness. | Horse and Rider Awareness | Scoop.it
Equine Extravaganza Equestrian Festival and Expo, Meadow Event Park, Doswell, VA, November 1-3, 2013. Enjoy three full days of “everything equine,” all at the birthplace of Secretariat!
Randi Thompson's insight:

Are you coming?  I will be sharing many interesting topics. Some are geared for professionals in the horse world, others for anyone who owns a horse. All of the sessions are very interactive! I love it when people participate with me as we discuss what is happening and how they can use it with their horses or horse business! 


Everyone wants to know more about how to ride or teach riding more effectively. They love the techniques that are from Horse and Rider Awareness. For those attending, make sure to get there early as the seats will fill up fast. Some of the topics we will cover together are: "How to create the perfect riding position", and "The secrets of the trainers, How to make your horse more comfortable to ride and easier to influence." These techniques have been taught to 1000’s of people in the horse world and will make a difference for any horse rider.


For those who are professionals or business owners in the horse world, there will be topics designed especially for you! I have been teaching professionals in the horse world for over 20 years now and know what you are looking for. Join with me as I share proven marketing topics and tips for those who want to know more about doing business with social media, including how to target local customers and so much more.


Another popular topic that everyone enjoys is "How to protect your horse business and clients through risk management" This session is very popular as so many people are unclear about what the Equine Liability Statues really mean for them. Hang onto your seats as this is a very lively topic where we will explore exactly what you need to know. As part of risk management you will want to also attend a crowd favorite, “What you need to do before taking a new rider or student for a ride on your horse" This is where I show people how to start a new rider on a horse. I will be using a real horse and rider to show you the process. Both professionals and the average horse owner love to see how to safely teach a rider how to stop, start and steer a horse.

The secrets of the trainers. How to know if your horse is "bending" from behind the saddle.

"How do you know if your horse has the right bend from behind the saddle? What does that mean and why is it important for what you are doing with your horse?...
Randi Thompson's insight:


If you are like many riders you enjoy doing different things with your horse. In this session you will see a big change in Beau's movement. He went to a new level of balance and connection! All we did was take the time to focus on if he was really bending from behind the saddle in the curves and lateral work. It sounds easier than it might be. Now you can watch the process we are using and apply it to what you are doing with your horse.

Canter work. Bending. The Magic of Looking Through the Horses Ears

"You hear it all the time in dressage. Not enough bend. What does that mean? We know that a bend is really coming from the horse being active on the inside ...
Randi Thompson's insight:

Bending.  That word makes horse people all over the world wonder if they are doing it right.  This was filmed after I watched Carl Hester training Charlotte Dujardin.   He kept reminding her that the correct bend in front of the saddle... was when she could see through the horse's ears.  Of course, I had to try it.  What I like best with this concept is that for the rider to see through the horses ears they need to bring the shoulders over first.  Try this on your horse and see how it effects what you are doing when working on bending.
