This series is meant to pick up where the “Colt Starting Philosophy” left off, and take you through the foundation building stage and enter the performance horse world.
Part 1- Foundation
Martin takes a 3-year-old from ride 5 to ride 11, as you watch the progression of each ride you will see the quiet manner the cold maintains as he advances through the basic maneuvers to establish a well rounded foundation
Part 2 – Progression
Martin demonstrates on a 3-year-old with 60 rides how the earlier foundation work starts to take shape with more precision and speed, and at the same time maintains the colt’s confidence.
Part 3 – Refinement
Martin demonstrates with more experienced horses the progression of the maneuvers to a higher level, and gives some exercises and tips that were not covered in #1 and #2.
I find this DVD set an excellent reference point to the fundamentals of Horsemanship. Great purchase

Watching this helped me understand different concepts in a clearer way. To be able to watch a master ride, hear what he’s feeling, and see the horse’s progress was invaluable.
