Product Description

“At your direction -- and without a lead rope -- a free horse jumps through a hoop in an open field. It sounds impossible, doesn’t it? Up until a couple of years ago I would have thought so too, but now I can direct my horse round an obstacle course with jumps, tunnels and weaving poles just like in dog agility. And the great thing is that it’s possible to teach other people and their horses to do it too!”
Vanessa Bee, Founder of The International Horse Agility Club

The Book:

All aspects of competing in equine agility are reviewed in this handler's guide, including explanations of the basics of the horse itself, the reasoning behind their behavior, and getting and maintaining their attention before training. Respecting the animal but keeping safety in mind at all times, the appropriate attitudes for both horse and teacher are discussed along with maintaining the appropriate level of patience. Covering the safe construction and negotiation of obstacles, this all-inclusive handbook also demonstrates how to use imagination to develop the scope of even the simplest structure. Methods for safely approaching the horse to catch and lead it are presented as well as how to look for signs of compliance and acceptance, encouraging the horse to see the handler as an efficient leader. With an outline of competitive levels, tips on organizing competitions and training days, and a troubleshooting section, this study also features helpful case studies of real life situations.

The DVD:

In this DVD, based on her bestselling book, Horse Agility Handbook, Vanessa Bee guides the viewer through her proven step-by-step method to excel at this exciting and growing sport. Starting with the horse on a lead rope, Vanessa shows the viewer how to safely work toward letting the horse go free over obstacles, in an open space and to compete internationally.
