If you missed the teleseminar Jane Savoie just did on the 4 Biggest Mistakes Riders Make…And How To Avoid Them, you can listen to the replay at:
I’ve just listened to the whole recording. The teleseminar is approximately 1 hour long and packed full with training tips from Jane about how she approaches training horses. She covers a lot of things in the recording but the emphasis is on dealing with resistance, getting the horse in front of the leg, canter departures, the horse not going forward, the horse horse not stopping and how this is a knock-on effect to all other areas of training.
There is a Q & A at the end of the recording too. All of it relevant to any kind of horse training, whether inside a dressage arena or outside it.
What I like about Jane Savoie’s explanations is that she reinforces the “pressure and release” aspect of training and believes in taking “ridiculously small baby steps” and “setting your horse and yourself up for success” and “improving the quality of the work” you are doing with your horse. Like me, she believes that it is the horse’s responsibilty to maintain the forward movement until being asked to do something else. She also explains how to learn to ride from training, not from strength, thereby building up the horse’s and the rider’s mental muscle for the exercise being asked.
The replay will be available through Sunday, 11th December 2011. You can save the recording on to your computer by clicking on the link above then right clicking on the mp3 link and left clicking save to/save as.
PS. I’m not in any way associated with Jane Savoie’s Happy Horse product or any of her other products. I find her style and clarity of presentation and her explanations of building up to various movements very helpful to me as a trainer. I wanted to give horsetrainingsolutions followers the chance to listen to Jane speaking.
