Don’t have regular access to cows? That’s ok, this challenge series is designed to help you be prepared for great cow work, and know what to look for when it’s time to put it to the test.
This challenge series focuses on developing a solid foundation for lead changes so you and your horse can stay relaxed when you do them in practice, and in the show pen.
This challenge series gives you exercises to build into your regular routine so the only thing that’s being drilled is the desired pivot foot!
Obstacles provide an excellent opportunity to solidify the partnership with your horse. This challenge series is about taking that communication to a higher level.
"Had lots of fun working on very import fundamentals. Was very glad to be able to participate on my 3 year old. Very relevant information without being too complicated. Really enjoyed Trevor’s explanations, straight forward and easy to understand. The videography was also top notch."
— Brooke M.

"I really enjoyed the challenge! The weekly drawings were super motivating and fun. The platform was very user friendly and the progress tracking was great. I liked the little surveys/self assessments. I also appreciated that I could submit the video no matter where I was at in the process...didn’t have to be perfect (we have a long way to go). The video coaching was helpful and inspiring. I hope this continues. "
— Katie C.
"So I must say I really thought I had figured out how to ride my new horse and had shown successfully down the fence, but this challenge showed me just how much my guide was broken, I still used my reins too much and did not trust my feet and my focus. These drills helped so much with relaxation and trust I feel like I have a different horse! Thank you!"
— Lynne F.
