Trainer

 

How It Works:

1-You email us a link to a video clip showing the issue you want help with.  We study the video and make a plan of action.
2-Next we set up a mutually convenient time to view it together while on the phone with each other.  
We'll discuss how to fix or improve the issue.  
We'll give you a better understanding about why it's happening.  
We'll break it down into pieces so it's easy for you to understand then tell you how to overcome it.

Issues may range from advice on picking out an outfit to purchasing a horse to training issues.  If you don't see your subject below, just ask.
