"Your book gives the real information that we are all looking for. It is easy to understand and it is those little tips for barrel racing that the professionals do not tell. I never realized what "get more with less" really meant until you explained it clearly. You are really helping horses with people problems more than you can imagine." - Pat B.
"I've been having trouble with my mare at increased speed... When I got to the section talking about dropping your stirrups, I thought 'hmmm...maybe I should try that!' Your book has helped me and my mare so much! ...our turns are even more 'snappy.' Thank you for offering your time to all of us who dream of making that perfect run!!" - Lisa P.
"Finally, finally there is a top-notch guide for BOTH horse & rider! Any equestrian knows that we don't just "sit there," but the coordination to work with our 1,200 lb. teammate make us true athletes. This book is well laid out and easy to use. HIGHLY recommend to any barrel racer wanting to up their game and get the best from yourself and your horse." - Marsha H.
