"At your direction—and without a lead rope—a free horse jumps through a hoop in an open field. It sounds impossible, doesn't it? Up until a couple of years ago I would have thought so too, but now I can direct my horse round an obstacle course with jumps, tunnels and weaving poles just like in dog agility. And the great thing is that it's possible to teach other people and their horses to do it too!"
Vanessa Bee, Founder of The International Horse Agility Club

In this DVD, based on her bestselling book, Horse Agility Handbook, Vanessa Bee guides the viewer through her proven step-by-step method to excel at this exciting and growing sport. Starting with the horse on a lead rope, Vanessa shows the viewer how to safely work toward letting the horse go free over obstacles, in an open space and to compete internationally.

About the Author

plus icon minus icon
Vanessa Bee has been around horses for most of her life working in racing stables throughout her teens then driving competitively into her early twenties when she was given an ‘unridable’ racehorse as a wedding present. Very soon Vanessa realized that there had to be a better way than the ‘bigger stick, bigger bit method’ of riding teaching being offered. It was in 1997 that the journey truly began to develop a style of teaching and riding that Vanessa has called Positive Horsemanship. Vanessa began to read, study and work with some of the greatest horseman of the age. Monty Roberts, Kelly Marks, Jayne Lavender, Ken Faulkner, Pat Parelli, and has used as her guides and mentors Henry Blake, Maurice Wright, Buck Brannaman, the Dorrances, Ray Hunt and Mark Rashid. She soon discovered that there as many ways of teaching horsemanship as there are horse/handlers in the world. A program simply couldn’t work all the time for everyone.
With a degree in Education, and a qualified teacher, Vanessa has used her skills to develop a series of courses that teach people of all abilities and experience to achieve a positive relationship with their horses. Vanessa also holds a Monty Roberts Preliminary Certificate and is a developing Progressive Counselor and constantly trains and studies to improve her method of guidance and teaching.
As well as running courses Vanessa will make home visits and works one on one with all abilities guiding both horse and handler on a positive and progressive journey taking them wherever they wish to go.
