Learn About Cattle and
How to Work Them


The 2-Part Training Series


Understand how cattle think, how to read them, how to position your horse to stop, turn, or slow them down.
Make accurate decisions to control them instead of accidentally causing unwanted behavior.

  • Discover how to speak 'cow lingo' to describe a cow.
  • Learn the first clue to look for to 'read' a cow.
  • Take a cow personality quiz and 'test' your skills!
  • Respond to a cow instead of reacting.
  • Why do some cows 'sour' quickly & others don't?
  • How to know if a cow worked previously will be 'good' to work again?

"For those of us that are not around cows all the time learning how to identify one from another is so helpful. It’s amazing the detail you pointed out that I would never have seen. I’ve always felt embarrassed when a trainer would be telling me which cow to go after and I had no idea what they were talking about." ~Judy

"The Cow webinar was awesome!  So much good information. I needed it and will be going back over everything until I understand." ~Cindy

"You took the Cow Characteristics to a new level for me! Watching them settle the heard will have a much more detailed purpose as well."


Learn tips to ride your horse with more ease and balance.
Use your eyes, seat, legs, and hands smoothly and accurately.
Stay connected to the cow and help your horse do the same!

"As always there is a wealth of information in your videos. I love the way you breakdown in detail each step of the process, focus on your self, your horse, the cow, seat... so much great information." ~Judy

  • Discover the step-by-step pieces of a 'cow turn.'
  • How and when do you use your eyes, seat, breath, legs, and hands to support your horse?
  • Get tips to stay connected to both your horse and the cow in different situations.
  • Test your knowledge for what to do when things get 'out of whack'!
  • Learn exercises you can do at home to develop your eyes, seat, and balance for cow work.
  • Understand how to get yourself ready and how to get your horse ready to work a cow.

"In Cow Connections, your tips and dissection of our body parts in relation to our horse was clearly explained.  I thought the video's were very helpful as well. I love your Best Practice:  "Read the Cow",  "Sit - Sit Down - Sit Again",  "Don't let your hands beat your seat", and your Quick Reminders List will be great to have as a pre-ride review." ~Kathleen

"I came to your courses with cowboy dressage in mind but have discovered how much fun working with cows is! It's great!! The Cow Connection webinar came just at the right moment and gave me a good basis to start learning this whole new way of riding." ~ Anne
