Would you like a 1/2 second off your run times?

For the first time you will truly understand why one pattern works for one horse and not another and which components YOUR horse needs simple things like some horses need a round circle and some need an oval – but it only clocks well if you choose the right one for your horses build

We teach you how to manage different set ups & ground and what your horse is built to kick ass on and what will be challenging.

How to find YOUR line to the 1st barrel every time you line up in the alley, so no more fretting!

Our program comes with a 1/2 second guarantee.

Did you know your horse came with a set of blueprints?

We will analyze & will go through your horses from head to toe.

We highlight the strengths and challenges of their build and how that applies to the pattern.

You send us pictures and a run and we send you back a report & a video showing:

  • Top 3 Time Stealers

  • Posture Analysis

  • Saddle & Rein Analysis

  • Job Analysis

  • What Pattern Strengths your horse will have

  • What Pattern Challenges your horse will have

Your horses skeleton accounts for a minimum of 80% of their athletic capacity.  Therefor, you really need to know how your horse is built to work.

Let's see if your saddle actually fits

You will learn HOW to measure YOU and YOUR HORSE to see what will work – how to check if the pad is the saint or the sinner – how to measure your body for best fit.

  • Did you know that it is MORE important that the saddle fits the rider than the horse?
  • Did you know your pad might be creating a false topline and pulling your saddle forward – pinching your horses scapula?
