BONUS #3: "THE 5 'NEVERS'" Reining and General Horsemanship Topic VIDEO  

In this video interview, Barb asks Sandy if there are things she thinks we should "never ever" do with a horse. Sandy explains "The 5 Nevers" in detail, why they are important and how to set yourself up for success instead. This is a great video for all disciplines.  

  • Never punish a willing horse. 
  • Never punish a horse in the maneuver. 
  • Never exhaust a horse. 
  • Never intimidate a horse.
  •  Never try to teach a horse when their adrenaline is up. 

BONUS #4: "THE IMPORTANCE OF CHUNKING'" Competition Mental Skills Topic VIDEO

BONUS #6: "DRIVING AND RATING A COW EXERCISE" Boxing / Down the Fence Topic VIDEO  

This is one of Sandy's favorite exercises for driving and rating a cow down the fence. It’s driving and rating through the corners, and around the arena, without turning the cow.  

It’s helpful in teaching you where you need to be to rate, drive and turn a cow. It’s also great for the horse to learn patience, position and listening to their rider.
