What People Are Saying About EquestrianCoach.com
What I love about Equestrian Coach is that your videos give me exercises I can use at home that are safe for both horse and rider and benefit me in the show ring... Thank you!
Every year I search for a new source to keep my teaching fresh and correct. I am using your site as my inspiration this summer, it gives me access to top horse people when I only have 15 minutes to spare. It is a huge help and asset! Thank you!
What I like best about EquestrianCoach.com: Short educational videos PACKED with useful information. Easy to navigate site. Variety of coach input. Keeps my lesson plans fresh while building on the basics.
I'm pleased to see that someone has finally done an instructional video on safely adjusting stirrups/girth when mounted. Seeing riders do it the wrong way has always been a pet peeve of mine.
