Simplification is the Key

BritishStirlingsw "Proper" horse training does not need to be technical! Western Dressage is not difficult to learn if it is simplified. Simplification does "NOT" minimize the value of Western Dressage training!

"Rearing and flipping over backwards is the single most dangerous thing a horse can do!"

Why does a horse rear?
Rearing is a refusal to go forward or an evasion to your "go forward" aids or cues!""

How do you fix a rearing problem?

Over the years, countless people and horses have been seriously injured or even killed by this type of unwanted behavior. This behavior is not to be taken lightly. A horse can go 6 different directions: forward, back, left, right, down, and UP! The truth is that it can happen at anytime without any warning from the horse or action on your part. If you have a horse that is starting to rear, seek help from a professional before you or your horse get seriously injured or even killed. "It is better to put a welt on the horse's butt than have the horse put you in the grave!"

Southwestern Ontario, Canada 
Was honoured to serve as a host to premier Western Dressage clinician "Randy Byers"


 in June 2011. This whirlwind tour allowed Randy to cross paths with many eagar horse people from all corners of the equine world. Dressage riders, trail riders, back yard weekend warriors, and pleasure riders, what everyone had in common was a desire to understand their horses better, communicate more clearly, and overcome and long held fears and roadblocks.

Randys keen ability to zero in on the root of any concerns, and get quickly down to work, transformed each and every horse/rider combination in a matter of minutes. Spectators cheered, as we all witnessed what seemed like instant success for every team.

Randys format combining private lessons as well as group time, give each rider so much personal attention, as well as time to really understand what they are learning. Randy assists every rider in banishing any excuses, giving them the tools to accomplish " The whole reason that Western Dressage is so exciting is that it brings the progressive training and testing of time tested traditional Dressage, to the Western rider. It give the western rider more tools for success with their horse.
