Video Sessions. Filmed live while I was coaching

Through these videos we explore a variety of Randi's simple, yet amazing “Horse and Rider Awareness” exercises that will connect you, or your students, with a horse quickly and safely.  Learn proven techniques that have been tested on 1000's of horses and riders.

In  2010 we began filming (with me coaching as I am filming) the “Horse and Rider Awareness Video series.”  Where we follow the training progress of 5 riders and 8 horses over several years. We show everything the horses and riders go through so that people can see what really can, and does, happen in training situations.
