What Are Others Saying?

 

“This is outstanding! I tried these lessons while riding my Half-Arabian Pony cross mare, and it made a huge difference. She is a very smart, but hot horse. The calming effects happened right away. I will definitely be using this as often as I can. Thank you for making a difference in my attitude towards bonded horsemanship!”

Sheri

“I LOVE these lessons. It is awesome to be able to have a focus and a direction while I ride, just as if you were right there instructing me! I like the videos as well just to see it while someone else is doing the exercise. It really brings it all together! I can't believe no one has thought of this before. I am looking forward to more of these lessons!”

Rosanne

Tammy

“WOW, What a GREAT IDEA! Really like these Audio lessons!!! I think so many people struggle with what to work on outside their lessons. Well.. HERE YOU GO. Plug in your earbuds and go ride! Perfect solution. I thought they were super easy to listen to, to learn from and apply! They also held my attention, and were the perfect length of time. I know I can be bored easily and these really held my attention and kept me engaged. Again super idea and GREAT FOR EVERYONE!!!!”

As an instructor, there is a endless laundry list of things to work on with your students, and to cover them in a lesson or two a week is not possible.

Your instructor will appreciate it! Audio lessons fill in the blanks, they supplement a good lesson program allowing your instructor to focus on the key areas they see need addressing. Giving you a well rounded education.

You instructor will be grateful that you are coming to lessons with a greater knowledge, and preparation.

Audio lessons are unique in the respect that they. Teach the what, the why and the how.

  • Teach you to use feel and your own power of observation. You will be amazed at how much you will learn about yourself and your horse when applying these lessons!
  • Teaches you about the philosophies behind the training.
  • Empower you to become more aware and use a variety of techniques to find the best one for you and your horse.

For those that learn better by visual learning we give you printouts and videos to complement the audios.  PLUS you have full access to a library of videos.

 

We will also get to connect in the comments, and at the monthly live question and answer.  Where you can get answers and troubleshoot problems. We will all be going through the lessons together, so you will feel supported by a community as we work on the lessons as a group.

Audio lessons allow you to get more done in a shorter amount of time because you can listen to the lesson as you are working with your horse.
Many people get frustrated spending an hour watching a training video and then going out and applying the techniques. Audio lessons help resolve that, and the videos that go along with the lesson are short. So you can spend your time with your horse!

If you have a busy month and are not able to get to the focus lessons, no worries, just visit the library when you have a chance and the lessons will be there waiting for you!

Audio lessons can be listened to in the car, on a trail ride, in the arena, at the show.

You can cancel your membership at any time. 

English/Western...Beginner/Advanced....  These lessons work for all skill levels and disciplines. 

Horses are horses, so the concepts of good training and horsemanship apply regardless of the tack you wear. 

The principles of riding in balance, and effective use of the aids are not discipline specific.

The lessons are taught in a way where you can increase the level of difficulty as you progress.  Suggestions are made to take the lesson to the next level, as you are challenged to increase your level of skill and mastery.

You don't even need to spend extra time watching, and learning. You can just do the audio portion in the time you are with your horse.  Make this time a meaningful time! Use the audio lessons to help you develop your relationship and take it to the next level. The fact that you can implement the techniques in the moment is priceless.

How about two coaches for the price of one... Both looking to help horses and people in the same way, but offering it slightly differently. Jack and Paula have been working together for 23 years, and have the same philosophies, but explain it in different terminology. Two for the price of 1/2. (with founding members rate!) It does not get much better than this!!

More About Paula and JackĀ 

For the last 23 years Jack and Paula Curtis have been helping horses and their owners reach new heights.

Their ability to articulate their ideas has an enormous impact on their students success.

They help students understand the whole picture, what to look and feel for.

They know when and how to apply various training concepts in a way that helps the horse understand.

Paula Curtis wants her students to have fun and be creative in their riding. “I teach because I want riders to feel what is truly possible. If you can learn more about your horse, what motivates him and makes him interested in what you have to offer, then you can train effectively.” “Riding is about; feel, communication and partnership. Riders need to think from the horses perspective, and work with the horses mind.” says Paula.

If you work with the horses mind, the body follows. Paula’s concepts apply across disciplines 

Her goal in teaching an understanding of the horse, is to get her students thinking and problem solving on their own. Then they are able to troubleshoot problems as they arise.

She has coached students in multiple disciplines including western events, eventing, dressage, hunters, jumpers, gymkhana, etc… Her students have gone on to compete successfully, locally, regionally and nationally.

Jack Curtis combines the best of quality horsemanship, classical dressage, and centered riding principles, to advance horses and their partners to new heights. 

Growing up in southeast WI, he was starting horses under saddle for local breeders by the age of 14. He worked with a variety of breeds, hot bloods, cold bloods and everything in between. He has shown Jumpers, Dressage, and worked on a cattle ranch, starting colts for their cold starting company.  Through this work, he gained an appreciation for the different disciplines, and each horses individuality and uniqueness.

For the last 23 years Jack has given lessons, clinics and demonstrations throughout the US. Let Jack help you expand your horsemanship in a more meaningful way for both horse and human.


Jack and Paula Curtis have been teaching and training their entire professional lives. They own and operate a boarding and training farm just outside of Milwaukee, WI where they live with their two young children.
