Vol. 1 – Preparing Your Horse For The Spur Control
In this DVD, I teach you how to prepare your horse for the spur control by building a solid foundation of acceptance to the leg so your horse will have a positive start to learning the “spur control.” You will learn to layer a solid foundation, which is so critical when teaching one the spur control, along with exercises to maintain your horse’s acceptance to your leg. I will teach you how to read your horse’s body language and keep them relaxed and happy!
Vol. 2 – Teaching The Spur Control
In this DVD, you will learn how to get your horse’s heart and gain willingness and acceptance. I will teach you how to get your horse to lift his back and slow down off your spur without destroying the horse’s movement!
Vol. 3 – Maintaining The Spur Control On Your Horse
In this DVD, you will learn how to maintain your horse’s acceptance off your leg, by keeping him moving lifted and fresh. Learn how to get that “clutchiness” out of your horse’s head, neck and legs and how to reestablish a fresh moving horse with acceptance to your leg!
For years, people have used spur and leg controls, commonly called “The Spur Stop” on their horses. Spur controls have been misused and abused to the point that many horse owners have a bad opinion of it…RIGHTFULY SO.
The spur control has been used to control the horses instead of good training principals and techniques that layer a solid foundation and build longevity in your horse.
I am AGAINST any training techniques that:
- Hurt a horse
- Make a horse move uncomfortably or unnaturally
- Make a horse hate rather than like their job
- Shorten the longevity of a horse’s career
The “spur stop” can do all of these, but it can also, when taught and used properly, increase the longevity of your horse’s show career and add life and flow to his movement!
I have produced a 3-Part DVD Series – teaching you how to prepare your horse for the spur control by building a solid foundation of acceptance to the leg, showing you how to teach your horse the leg control; and finally how to maintain your horse with the leg control.
