Ground lessons and explanations of horse behaviour that are invaluable for every horse and every rider.
Some horses buck when they are first saddled. That's just the way it is, right?
Just put the saddle on and he’ll get used to it, right?
Every horse can learn to be relaxed and confident, just as every horse
can learn to buck and fight.
No matter what happened, or how angry and frustrated I felt, I never ever blamed the horse I was working with.
After all, I’m the human and I’m supposed to have the brains. I’m supposed to be the teacher, right?
It wasn’t until I learned to control myself and to remain neutral, that I started to see every situation from the horse’s point of view.
When you see me work with a young horse, you'll see that the horse doesn't break a sweat—and neither do I.
My tools are common sense and kindness. I give every frightened horse a safe space where they can relax and know kindness for the first time.
But I didn't learn this overnight. I've dedicated my life to understanding and training horses. And believe me, I've seen and heard it all.
You'll feel like you're in the training yard with me, as I start a frightened three-year-old station-bred gelding who hadn't had much prior handling.
Step-by-step, lesson by lesson, day by day, you can watch while I catch the gelding, teach him to lead, handle his legs, and introduce the saddle, bridle and myself as rider. Through each of the sixteen lessons, I explain the WHY of everything I’m doing and answer questions from onlookers.
Each lesson is less than 30 minutes, to make sure the young horse stays confident and relaxed.
And much, much more...
Just an in-depth explanation of horse handling and horse psychology.
You'll have unlimited ACCESS to the videos – you'll be able to go back, revisit, and access all the lessons as many times as you want.

Q. I'm an experienced rider/complete beginner. Is the Starting a Horse Under Saddle Online Clinic for me?
A. There’s something for everyone in these videos. The basic ground lessons shown with the gelding, apply to horses of all ages. I explain every step in great detail. There’s never been such an in-depth explanation of horse behaviour and horse handling. Every horseperson, regardless of their experience, will benefit from better understanding their horse.
Q. How is the Starting a Horse Under Saddle Online Clinic different to the book?
A. I'm very proud of my book. The principles in it are timeless. But there are limitations to the written word. Nothing beats me showing you—in real-time—what can be achieved with any young horse. These videos are the closest thing you'll get to being able to work in the yard with me.
Video allows me to demonstrate my approach, in real-time. It allows you to see and understand how I react and change my approach in response to the horse’s behaviour.
It allows me to show you my approach in a far more nuanced way, than in my book.
If you want to be guided step-by-step, through key lessons to Start a Horse Under Saddle, this Online Clinic is for you.
Q. I’ve seen a lot of horse trainer's material, what makes this different?
A. My knowledge is original and unique. It's not something I read or saw or copied from someone else. I know what I know from working with so many horses, day after day, month after month, year after year.
I've seen many of the big name trainers working with horses and I don't agree with much of what they do or what they say. I don't agree with:
- Harassing horses with ropes and flags
- Tying horses up to fight
- Letting horses buck with the saddle
- Roping their legs or feet
- Chasing horses until they're distressed
Q. What will I get out of this Online Clinic if I’m already an intermediate or advanced horse trainer?
A. Many experienced horse people express how they wish they found my work years, or decades ago. And how it would have eliminated so many problems, for them and their horses, if they had access to my philosophy.
With this Online Clinic in hand, you’ll have step-by-step lessons to develop a relaxed and confident horse.
A horse who’s ready to work and try his hardest for you, to do what you ask, when you ask, even at the highest level.
In fact, the more experienced you are, the more you’ll understand and gain from this Online Clinic.
Q. Will this approach work for my horse?
A. My Online Clinic doesn't show a 'method' that may, or may not work. Instead, it demonstrates and explains in-depth how every lesson must be adjusted to suit every horse.
Each lesson shows how you can better understand your horse, and how horses really think and learn.
