Did you know that every horse is left-handed or right-handed by nature? Every horse has a natural asymmetry, and this can cause a lot of problems once a horse starts its training career.
Straightness Training consists of gaining awareness of your horses individual needs, and then using a logical system of systematic exercises to strengthen and develop the horse symmetrically.
As a Certified Instructor I can help you assess your horse and create a personalized training program. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
How would you like to have access anytime, anywhere to a coach? Virtual lessons are a facetime video lesson nearly as good as having a live clinic or lesson. This is a very cost-effective way to continue to your progress with weekly lessons. After each facetime lesson homework and review notes are provided.
