No matter what your starting point, there's always more to learn.
Multiple steps are used to explain and train each maneuver to make it suitable for beginners but just as valuable to more advanced riders who often are missing a basic building block that's holding their horse back from progressing.
Building a solid foundation will enable you and your horse to perform better and feel more successful.
How, is a great starting point, but understanding Why something works, and When it should be applied allows you to use the tools learned in new situations with confidence.
The lessons contain text, diagrams and videos for clarity. In addition more videos with comments are available in the community where you can ask questions and can use your video credits for assessment.
Additional lessons are also referenced from other courses in the WE From Intro to Show program, but there is a lot of information available in this course even if you don't have them.
Lessons include 'What you need', 'What you should do', 'How to lose the easy points', 'How to make it easier for your horse', ' What will probably happen' and 'How to fix it'.
Don't see your situation covered? That's why we have a private community so you can ask questions. If the answer has not been covered yet, I'll often add a lesson to address it.
A place to give you the tools you need through Videos, PDF's, Specific steps and Lessons.
The support of a Safe Community to ask questions and tell us of your progress and challenges.
Feedback on your questions and also on optional videos.
Trish, Thank you. You are so responsive!
I can’t believe how you are up all hours of the day and night!
I must take this opportunity to tell you how amazing your course is!
The amount of information and lesson content is extraordinary!
Kudos to you for all your work and efforts!
Now if only I can get myself video’d soon to take advantage of your expert eye and critique. That has also been a weak point for me: learning the technology to download, edit, upload, etc. So your course has even been a catalyst in that sort of education.
Thank you, thank you for putting this wonderful course together.
Whether your new to Working Equitation or a seasoned competitor, the course benefits are boundless.
The virtual course heightens rider awareness, improves equine balance capabilities, coaches riders/horses within a shared supportive and friendly environment & provides tips to boost your confidence as you progress thru the levels.
I took this WE obstacle online course and I learned new ways to train the obstacles, analyze my team's strengths and weaknesses. It pushed me to look at my obstacle work and find areas of improvement. It works for all levels and all horses.
It addressed the main weaknesses in execution of an obstacle and gave me tools to help myself as well as my horse. I was able to improve my obstacle work by following the clear directions, that included video lessons and analysis in the supportive online community.
I saw the sport in a new light!
