Toni’s Training Tip
Now that winter is over (we think), it’s time to re-connect with your horse and get him/her back on track for a great summer of riding. Click here to read some of Toni’s simple but effective tips that will help accomplish that. You’ll learn more about ground manners, turning on the forehand, setting boundaries, leading and more. Try these tips with your horse and let us know how it went.
