If you'd like more detail on how to go through this list (in addition to watching video of a young horse progressing through each of the lessons) then refer to the Case Studies module in the Kandoo Equine Online Training.

If you are not yet a member and would like to be you can join here (or if membership is closed at the time of reading this, simply email me, [email protected] and I'll do my best to get you in).
