Cross Training Your Horse by Jane Savoie
ET-120 Techniques of Training II-
Pre-requisite- Techniques of Training I 2- credits 8-weeks
1. The most important part of this is the horse. You have to use the same horse you used in the first class, or a horse that you have trained enough so he is at the same level as the first horse was at the end of the first class. The horse must be able to do all of the exercises we did in the first class. This class will build on those exercises, and it would really be confusing to you and the horse to try to do these exercises without the foundation from the first class.
2. A similar bit to the first class, it is possible you might need to change bits in this class after I watch the tapes. It is really hard to say until we see the horse perform. The horse will tell us what he needs.
3. Students may need to use spurs, some horses will totally ignore you without out them. It all depends on the horse.
4. Saddle and blanket.
5. A video camera and an operator. Be sure you line someone up ahead of time, so you can get the tapes in on time. A digital camera will really help, so you can upload them to me and do away with the mail time.
6. You need an arena or a large corral or something with good enough ground, so you can lope a horse and you and the horse both feel safe. A horse will not try to work if he knows the ground is bad.
7. You might need the martingale or draw reins from the first class. As in all training sometimes you might have to back up for a fresher on the basics.
8. A protective is a good idea and highly recommended.
The format of this class is a whole new theory for education. We will give you lecture notes and audio instructions and then a video to demonstrate the lesson. You will then practice the lesson on your horse and then send us a video of you performing the exercise described in the lesson. We will evaluate the video and give you suggestions for improvement and a grade on the lesson.
This class will be a continuation of Techniques of Training I. We will continue the methods of putting a foundation on a horse. We will do more advanced suppling and softening exercises to get the horse ready for a performance event.
The student will need the same horse used in the first class, a corral or arena to ride in and a video camera to take tests.
THE LESSONS IN THIS CLASS ARE FAIRLY ADVANCED AND WILL REQUIRE DAILY PRACTICE TO LEARN THEM. YOU CAN NOT JUST GO OUT AND TAKE THE TEST WITHOUT PRACTICE.
AFTER YOU DO YOUR VIDEOS, PRINT OFF THE GRADE SHEET AT THE END OF THE LESSON AND WATCH YOUR VIDEO AND FILL OUT THE GRADE SHEET AND SEND IT ALONG WITH YOUR VIDEO. SELF GRADING IS THE BEST WAY TO LEARN. AFTER EACH EXERCISE GIVE A SHORT ANALYSIS OF THE THINGS YOU DID GOOD OR BAD. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PUT IN THE POINTS FOR EACH EXERCISE JUST THE COMMENTS. After you evaluate your self, if you think you can do better feel free to re-due the tape, that is not cheating. Be sure and allow enough time so the tape can be to us by the end of the 3rd, 5th and 7th week. You might want to plan you videoing so you can re-due it video if it does not turn out the way you want it to.

Students are expected to complete three assignments or lessons each week for each class. Each lesson will have an online quiz at the end of the lesson and the grade will be sent to me automatically. These feature enables me to keep track of a students progress. Any assignments that are late will be dropped on letter grade. If a student needs to be gone, just e-mail us and let us know.
In case of injury to the horse the student needs to send us a veterinary statement saying the horse can not be used in class and how long he predicts it will be before the horse can be ridden.
In the case the student gets hurt we need a note from a doctor saying the student can not ride and how long it will be before they can.
