I have to admit I was reluctant to do this course. Whilst I know planning is essential for successful training, I have always found it tedious and a chore. However, I am so glad I signed up. Trudi explains everything in a way that makes it so simple and achievable. By breaking the planning process into bite size chunks it stops it being overwhelming and it has already improved the way I work with my horses. I also loved the second video on motivation. In the depths of winter it can be easy to forego working with your horse but since watching it I have done something with mine most days. I would highly recommend this course to anybody, whatever discipline you participate in and whichever method of training you use. It is most definitely a must watch
