Spring round up! News from the round pen…

Howdy all,
Well it looks like spring is finally here and things are getting busy.. I just wanted to drop you a quick note on whats coming up in the next few months.. Next month on the 1st of May I will be at the Silver Spur tack shop in Plymouth WI doing a round pen and ground work demo so drop by and say howdy.. There’s lots of great stuff on sale too!

And my new book Equiknowlogy 101… is being edited and should be ready to go to the printer soon! Look for it on my site in the next few months.. Also I have been working on a colt starting video series staring “Yukon” the mustang.. This video will be a raw and uncut video of what it took to start this colt from day one up to his first ride outside.. It shows each days lesson and how he progressed through the starting process over a two week period.. This video will not be a Hollywood production complete with music and choreography! But it will show the true life realities of starting a horse, how it was done and what you could expect if you try it yourself.. Complete with chickens running through the round pen, dogs barking, birds flying around the arena, gates clanking and all the rest of the things you and your colt will deal with when your working with him..I will have a copy of the working vids at Plymouth if you care to come down and see what ya think..

And now that spring is almost here I know some of you will be looking for that new horse.. Before you do might I suggest taking a look at “You Can’t Ride Pretty” A complete horse buyers guide.. A 2 DVD set giving you all the info you will need to find that perfect equine partner! I have also lowered the price to just $25.00 for this very beneficial educational tool. So don’t wait get it before you spend a ton of bucks on the wrong horse..So that’s what coming up friends. I hope you are getting some saddle time on your horses and things on your spread are shaping up to be a good summer! Drop me a line and say hello and we will see ya down the trail!

Best regards and “Just Ride”!
