Six Keys to Harmony
Essential Groundwork & Mounted Exercises

This information packed, professionally produced video features easy to understand techniques for establishing respect and trust with your horse and achieving light responses from your horse. By employing these exercises, your horse will be more responsive while riding and well mannered on the ground.

These essential exercises should be performed as your "pre-ride checklist" each and every time you work with or ride your horse. It won't take long for you to see results that help you to establish your leadership position, gain your horse's attention and determine each time how he (or she) is responding to you. The exercises will help your horse to be calm, focused and willing, and they will increase his coordination for precise and fluid movements as well as to increase his flexibility.

It is essential to do the six key exercises each and every time before you ride, with the goal of achieving lighter and lighter responses from your horse with lighter and lighter requests. You'll see that your horse will become a willing and enthusiastic participant if you are consistent in performing the exercises. Once you and your horse know these exercises, you should be able to run through them all in about ten minutes, then mount up with more confidence knowing that your horse is focused on you and on the job at hand. Your confidence will pass through to your horse and give you a greater chance for a safe and successful ride.

By practicing Ed's fundamental exercises on the ground and mounted, your speed and direction control will be greatly enhanced. These exercises will prepare both horse and rider mentally, physically and emotionally for a more successful, more safe, and more enjoyable ride.

This video also includes techniques for respectful catching, respectful head position, haltering, respectful leading and much more. This program is an extremely valuable tool for riders of any discipline and is appropriate for both experienced and beginning riders, adult and youth.

For less than the cost of one lesson, a wealth of information is at your fingertips. You'll be amazed at the results as many others have been. This isn't a "watch it once and call it a day" video. This is a program you will be able to watch many, many times and still gain something more with each additional viewing.

The DVD version of Six Keys to Harmony is chaptered in a way that makes it easy for you to view any section of the program you would like to see at any time.

"Your video is AWESOME. What I think I like about it most, among many other things is: you get it, Ed. Totally. All that Natural Horsemanship is and was meant to be. I see so few who really get it. I can count on two hands the rest who truly get it. And you do. Not just in talk, but in action. And you articulate it so well. In just the right detail. Be confident and know: you've got the gift & it's time to share it with vast multitudes."

"You're better than 95% of the top Natural Horsemanship trainers/clinicians out there, trust me. So is your video. BECAUSE you get it. I see the deeper things there and man it was exciting to see how well you get this stuff."

"I've learned from all the top masters in this field, but in retrospect...I can look back now and know...some of them don't get it, after all, and I've passed a lot of them up, even though I retain the parts that I know are right and good."

"But you, Ed...you get it. Bigtime. Was such a joy to see. You're a true master. Know that. Because it's true."

"I watched the DVD this morning and I LOVE HIM! Oh my gosh. I guess it's his simplicity and ease which has me hooked. Everything he does is done in such a way as to make me believe I can do it, too. I was really filled with the certainty that I can and will actually develop some really good horses by following his steps, and I'm elated that there is structure to the exercises."
