Although I am in no way a horse expert, I loved this DVD. It starts right at the beginning, with clear, step by step instructions. The approach is totally gentle, but firm, and shows how to build a relationship of trust with a horse. It's obviously based on a deep understanding of and sympathy with horses. The satisfaction of getting communication going on horse terms is encapsulated for me in the one-rein-stop: yes you can do it the old-fashioned way, but do it in Kate's way, and the horse is a willing partner. The training looks like a pleasant experience all round, with plenty of stroking involved. I am quite sure that any horse would vote for Kate Farmer's training programme!
