Jec A. Ballou brings riders and horses measurable progress -- while avoiding boredom, confusion, or injury -- though correct physical conditioning of the horse. Her training emphasizes science-based exercises to improve movement and performance. She advocates cross-training for every horse and rider with training plans free of short-cuts or methods that restrict the horse's movement.
Through this, I’ve identified five fundamentals of training horses and riders:
- Healthy Movement
- Simplicity in the training approach
- Mind-body connection for both horse and rider
