    Excellent instruction in how to use the flag to promote understanding with different kinds of horses. To watch this experienced teacher is reward in itself. The video is divided into segments after which Joe comments on each one, so you hear his real time narration followed by his evaluation after watching it himself. Safety is stressed, various approaches are presented to prepare for different situations (being tied, saddled, roped off of, separated from other horses, and others), and when to take a recess covered. It’s all done with an open heart, empathy, and good humor. You could wear this DVD out and not absorb it all.

    Understanding the flag is a brilliant dvd, the depth, meaning and enthusiasm that are in all of Joe Wolter’s videos don’t just answer the questions you have, but also get you thinking and excited for what is next with your horses, this dvd has not only helped me improve my horsemanship, it has also helped me become a more forgiving and effective teacher. I would definitely recommend this dvd to anyone looking to improve any type of relationship.
