The Modern Horseman's Countdown to Broke by Sean Patrick


Professional trainer Sean Patrick has created the ultimate training guide to the complete riding horse whether a performance, working, or just for fun prospect in The Modern Horseman's Countdown to Broke.

Modern horsemanship has been shaped by the age of information sharing. How we handle and ride our horses today is in a large part due to the books, videos, Web sites, podcasts, clinics, and personal instruction available to us 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in our cars, homes, and barns. In a sense, we can't see the forest for the trees. We are so overwhelmed with the jargon and the gear and the newest trends, we can no longer focus on the big picture: an honest-to-goodness training method that anyone can apply to any horse in preparation for any purpose.

So it's time to get realistic that is, real, do-it-yourself horse training. Quite simply, you begin at Lesson Number 33 and count your way down through the basic exercises the primary education every horse needs. And when you get to Lesson 1, you've done it; you've prepared your horse for advanced work in any number of equestrian disciplines. You can't get lost along the way. There's no room for confusion. Sean clarifies the point and explains the gist of every step. The happy result? He trains you to be a trainer.

Whether your horse is a foal or five, guilelessly green or imperfectly veteran, he will benefit from the Countdown, a true foundation program, serving to prepare him for the endless variety of activities and jobs horses perform today. From indispensable handling, sacking-out,and tying exercises, to how you, the rider, can control the different parts of the horse's body from the ground and the saddle; from mounting on both the left and the right to performing flawless flying lead changes, you'll be amazed at how effective and efficient this program is.

Plus, because you are the one teaching your horse, you have the opportunity to build your own skill set. Sean promises that by the end of the Countdown, you'll have a deeper understanding of how horses learn; an improved ability to gauge the pressure necessary to communicate with your horse and pace your teaching accordingly; a capacity for recognizing behaviors both good and bad; and an intuitive understanding of the root of a problem and the steps you should take to work on it. In essence, you will be self-sufficient and ready to take your horse that next step, whether along the rail, down the trail, or in the show pen.
