"This is the second time in less than two months that I have submitted a video for Emily to review. Both times have been extremely helpful and I will contintue to submit video's on a regular basis. Listening to Emily's clear and concise evalution and instruction while actually watching myself and my horse has brought me a much greater understanding of what I need to improve for both of us.


In a private lesson, when Emily makes suggestions for even the slightest change, I am always impressed by the effect it has on my horse. On video, Emily makes the same suggestions and it is so much easier to see exactly what she is saying and why. It is easier to make those little changes after watching your video several times and really paying attention to your position and your horse at the exact moment that Emily is telling you what to change.


Prior to submitting these videos I had never thought this tool could be useful. Frankly, I only submitted the first one because it was free through an offer by Horseshow.com. I was thrilled with the understanding I gained and submitted the second one last week,within a month of the first. None of us want to continue training our horse and ourselves only to find we have been doing it wrong or that there are improvements we can make. The use of video allows us to get great feedback that is, in some ways, better than even a private lesson. In a lesson, you can't see what you are doing - you can in a video.


I highly recommend this tool to further your horsemanship! It is well worth the cost and leaves you with a video with Emily's comments that you can view over and over again"

"After reviewing the voice-over, coaching session from Emily, I was excited to apply the advice! I decided to take two pieces of coaching rather than applying everything in one evening. Specifically, Emily mentioned how my weight was on the inside leg during trotting and cantering my horse. My mare had the tendency to drop her shoulder to the inside and counter-bend - hmmm, I wonder why? I conciously made the effort to put more weight in my outside leg or seat last night during a ride. I noticed the following improvements: we did not fall into the circle, we stayed on the circle and the horse responded to this aid. Wow, could this be working?


Additionally, I adheared to Emily's direction on rebalancing the horse after a speed up. I have a horse with emphatic impulsion and sensitivity. Great attributes, but harnassing the power is another story. After an increase in rhythm on the circle (with a high head and an all-over-the-place effort), I placed my inside leg on her, had some weight in my outside rein (rode the inside leg towards the outside rein) and she responded by balancing herself.


In summary, Emily's clear communication and suggestions on refining the riding has resulted in a positive change. I will need to work on this more to ensure understanding, but I was surprised how these changes impacted our areas of less strengths!


Emily is astute in her analysis and drills down to the root cause of the issue, therefore impacting the rider. Very cool!"
