“Impressive? Yes, very. It takes a very skilled and talented horse person to be able to take a horse through basic ground work exercises and then get the horse use to the saddle and rider in under three hours. However, what made an even bigger impression on me was how stressed and uncomfortable the horses look throughout most of the DVD. The horses are pushed hard and have little chance to think about or process anything. There is a bit of snorting and bucking and quite a bit of high headed horses with eyewhites showing.”
