Excellent! Easy to follow and understand. Will definitely be getting more from them and will look at booking in for a course as well.

Fabulous DVD

I have the original Ground Control DVD but decided to purchase the new version last week. I find the new version really well done and appreciate the exercises being performed on a horse new to the methods. THIS is what we need! Its really nice seeing a finished result but it doesn't help the student know what to do when things go pear shaped. Thank you for releasing the new version I think its a great tool.

I am very pleased with the DVD . I brought the Buck Brenaman DVD's and it is very hard to follow and does not explain clearly what to do. The double Dan DVD's are so much easier to learn from. Jenny

All the lessons are presented in an easy to reproduce way for both trainer and horse. Great set of tools for any one wanting to gain easy control of their horse.
