Jane Savoie shows how “riding in your mind’s eye” will help you reach your personal best. She reveals the secret that elite athletes have known for years—the power of visualization to affect performance. Jane’s premise is that practice doesn’t make perfect; “perfect” practice makes perfect. By reprogramming your mind with correct mental pictures—that is, vivid images of movements ridden well—you can etch the right pictures in your mind’s eye. This first DVD explores the rider’s position and movements and exercises required of the Training Level horse, including: alternating from rising to sitting trot, upward and downward transitions, 20-meter circles, shallow loops in the trot, changes of direction, and transitions from medium walk to free walk and back again.

“Savoie eloquently describes the aids a rider must use to achieve the desired movement in easy-to-understand detail…”—USA Equestrian

“With Savoie as a guide, viewers can gain a firm image of the proper way to ride the various movements and can capture these images in their minds to take with them during schooling and even competitions.”—USDF Connection

About the Author

On January 4, 2021, the equestrian world lost a tenacious competitor, committed teacher, and extraordinarily vibrant presence. Dressage competitor, coach, instructor, speaker, and author Jane Savoie spent five years battling multiple myeloma, a rare type of blood cancer, and as was her nature, never once giving up.

Jane leaves behind a legacy of learning materials she passionately created and curated over the course of a riding and teaching career that spanned decades and continents. Teaching, in all its forms—from coaching Olympic teams to instructing amateur riders to presenting inspiring motivational talks at events—was her calling, and one to which she gave generously, infusing every lesson with boundless energy and exciting ideas. Jane was committed to giving every rider and every experience level equal opportunities to learn, grow, and achieve goals, big and small. She found the best way to reach more individuals with in-depth training that anyone could afford was through books and videos. A prolific writer, Jane’s first instructional book was published in 1992 (That Winning Feeling!) and her last in 2020 (Dressage Between the Jumps) with many others in between. 

Through her books and videos, Jane’s extraordinary knowledge and innovative training techniques remain available to those seeking breakthroughs in their riding and in their lives. In this way, her true passion for teaching and learning lives on.
