We’ve been loving Retired Racehorse Project’s “Five-Minute Clinic” YouTube series, in which trainers representing several disciplines share insight in a bite-sized format.

Here are two video from eventers Dom Schramm and Tik Maynard — you can view the complete “Five-Minute Clinic” playlist, plus webinars and other helpful resources for OTTB owners, on the RRP YouTube channel here,

Dom Schramm of Schramm Equestrian has been using the COVID-19 downtime to hack his horses out of the ring more, and likely many riders all over the world are looking to do the same! But how do you introduce your horse safely to hacking out if you’ve been spending most of your time in the ring? Dom shares three tips for making your first out-of-arena adventure positive and safe.

Tik Maynard, past Thoroughbred Makeover discipline champion, eventer/horsemanship trainer and clinician, and author of In the Middle Are the Horsemen, shares three steps towards creating clearer, horse-centered communication with your horse.
