Are you ready to build a stronger partnership with your horse? Hoping to achieve a remarkable softness from the ground before you swing into the saddle? Starting a youngster or working to overcome training and behavioral problems in an older mount? Becoming bored with endless round-penning?

 Australian equestrian stars Dan James and Dan Steers of Double Dan Horsemanship are here to show every horse owner the basic steps to an infinitely useable training skill: long-reining. If ever there was hidden treasure in the diverse and ever-evolving realm of horsemanship, it is this underused but incredibly valuable practice. Long-reining benefits every equestrian discipline, as James and Steers demonstrate, improving the horses self-carriage and responsiveness to the aids, and your feel and timing, like nothing else, and all from a safe and controlled position on the ground.

 Bring long-reining into your barn with these 20 easy-to-understand lessons, explained step-by-step with full-color photographs, including: how to use and hold long reins, how to introduce them to your horse, how to navigate with accuracy and change speed, and how perform lateral work that improves your horses flexibility and overall movement. You, and your horse, will enjoy the drive.

Author Notes: Growing up in Western Australia Dan Steers first discovered his love for horses in his early teens; at 15 he began working for master farrier and horseman Pete Webber developing his horsemanship and farrier skills. At 17, Steers began working for cutting trainer, Corey Holden, where he spent months training horses and was quickly recognized for his achievements in the show ring. Before long he was conducting regular horsemanship clinics and became highly respected for his skills, talent and ability to communicate.
Born in Queensland Australia on a small cattle farm, Dan James, first began his lifelong passion with horses at six weeks old. The family milking goat would suffice until he got his first pony. Starting his first colt in his early teens sparked his hunger to understand more about the horse’s thinking patterns. After studying at Longreach Pastoral College, James began traveling the world to gain a better understanding of horses.
