)-- MyHorse Daily, a new online community featuring daily articles from industry experts, how-to videos and horse care tips, announces the release of a new free guide on horse training, Perfecting the Lope: Champion Western Horseman Bob Avila on How to Train a Horse to Counter-Canter and Change Leads While Loping. MyHorse Daily members may download the guide for free at http://myhorse.com/free-guides/perfecting-the-lope-champion-western-horseman-bob-avila-on-how-to-train-a-horse-to-counter-canter-and-change-leads-while-loping/.
Champion Western Horseman Bob Avila demystifies lead changes by breaking down the training process in an easy step-by-step guide. By starting with the counter-canter, riders may advance their skill in controlling their horse’s body; horses work harder to balance themselves with the counter-canter than they do on their regular leads, so mastering this skill is extremely useful for horse training.
In the free guide, Perfecting the Lope: Champion Western Horseman Bob Avila on How to Train a Horse to Counter-Canter and Change Leads While Loping, Avila also addresses the common misconception that lead changes involve changes of direction. Riders will learn what they are doing right, what they may be doing wrong and what steps to take to achieve success. With simple, easy-to-read instructions and clearly labeled how-to photographs, riders will achieve winning lead changes through Avila’s expert instruction.
This guide is free to MyHorse Daily members, and is an invaluable resource for riders seeking to achieve a winning lead change.
