A "thinking rider" is someone who analyzes a situation in order to find out the reason why something isn't working or why the horse is making a certain mistake. Then he/she applies his/her theoretical knowledge, experience, and intuition together to come up with a solution that addresses the root cause of the problem.

Prepare to have your mind BLOWN

We don't just dangle a couple little tidbits and hope you sign up for our bigger paid course for the rest. Although we DO invite you to sign up for our bigger course, this Challenge is intended to give a real TRUE taste of what learning from us is like. Be prepared for lots of information. Be prepared to take notes. Be prepared to change the way you think about riding and training horses!

Make the commitment and set aside the time

This material all goes away on April 19, 2021. We do this because we know that when people procrastinate, they actually never get back to it. And when that happens, they never get the benefits of the experience. We don't want you to lose out! This is why we want to drive home the point right here and now to make a commitment to DO the challenge while you still have access, no matter what it takes. Write it into your schedule NOW.

Engage. Ask Questions.

As teachers of Thinking Riders, we not only allow your questions, we ENCOURAGE them. In fact, part of this whole process this week is teaching you how to ask BETTER questions (not that anything is wrong with any of your questions) because the quality of your results is reliant upon the quality of your questions - to us, to yourself, and to your horse.
