YOU HAVE ALREADY SEEN IT IN YOUR HEAD...
Just how special your OTTB / retired racehorse has the potential to be... BUT FIRST YOUR EX RACEHORSE MUST LEARN HOW TO BE A 'RIDING HORSE'
"Thoroughbreds can be Re-Trained..."
However, making the transition from the racetrack to a new career can be difficult...
"Consistent, correct, re-schooing of the basics is the most effective way to get you and your OTTB on the same page.
It is the key to the connection and partnership you're looking for with your horse"
"...I’m loving having my “old horse” back. He is super awesome and we match each other so well. I still occasionally have a “listening ears aren’t on” issue, but instead of it becoming a scary bolt, I know what to do to retrain before it becomes a bigger issue..."
HOW WILL THE NEW YEAR FEEL FOR YOU AND YOUR HORSE?
By putting the OTTB; From Racecourse to Ready Program into practice you are almost guaranteed that things will be different for you both just 12 short weeks from now.
Regardless of how long you have already been 'trying' to get things right...
And, by joining now you are giving your horse a head start in his training before the 10 weeks of live coaching begins in January 2022
Reserve your space in the live coaching program beginning 24th January 2022
Gaps or missing foundational pieces in his re-training can result in years of frustration for both horse and rider...

ALL THE DETAILS
The OTTB; From Racetrack to Ready is beginning on the 24th of January 2022.
However, you can begin working through the training immediately after purchasing the program. This gives you and your horse a head start.
Alternatively, you can wait and dive in with everyone in January 2022...
You have a horse who has had very little basic training since retirement from the track (how long the horse has been off the track is not that important)
You can ride competently enough to walk, trot and canter 'with your horse', unaided.
You are a novice rider; the program will show you how you can both improve your skills in the saddle AND use your skills on the ground to effectively re-school your horse.
You can ideally commit to working with your horse 3 or more times a week over the coming 10 weeks (however, this is not necessary - lifetime access means you can come back whenever suits you)
You are willing to accept responsibility for your own role as a rider in your horse's development
You are open to developing both yourself as a rider and your horse
You are looking for a longer-term solution, rather than a short term 'quick fix' where your horses training and development is concerned
LIFE TIME ACCESS
Because I know that with horses, things have to be revisited from time to time... The "Conversation" is continuously evolving.
One of the greatest things about the OTTB; From Racetrack to Ready Program is that will help you at so many differetn points along your journey with your horse.
Meaning as the months and years pass, you will have access to material to help you continue to improve the conversation with your off the track thoroughbred.

Complete Half Halt Trainings
The half halt. An essential aid for all riders – and yet one of the most misunderstood and under-utilized! I felt that this resource will be invaluable for you over the coming weeks and months and will really help you to truly benefit from the trainings inside of the Racecourse to Ready Program
Re-Schooling is a 'big deal'. You not only need to 'undo' past lessons, but also deal with some of the baggage that your horse might have picked up along the way. This will help you to feel confident that you're up to the challenge...

You stop riding or very rarely...
No longer enjoy riding or horses
Tension with family & friends
Risk injury or worse
Can you even put a price on any of these things?

Most riders are looking for a horse that they can enjoy. A horse they can grow with and deepen the bond and partnership.
Your thoroughbred has the potential to become your 'forever horse' with consistent and correct re-schooling - and a whole lot of understanding and love.
ALL THE NITTY GRITTY DETAILS
What is the Racetrack to Ready Program?
This is an online program which gives you the knowledge you need in order to successfully re-train your ex racehorse (or OTTB) as they are also known
Who is this program suitable for?
Novice riders who are committed to working with their thoroughbred, but are unsure of how to deal with a lot of the training issues that are potentially showing up
Who is this program not suitable for?
Riders who want a 'quick fix'. Riders who are unwilling to accept responsibility & be consistent in taking action, both of which are essential when re-training
Do I need my own horse to participate?
No. Some of our riders leased or just exercise horses for other people. However, as with all things horse related, consistency is a key factor to making progress, so access to a horse is advised.
What sort of a time commitment is needed?
This is entirely up to yourself. However, in order to get the best results I recommend trying to work with your horse at least 3 or 4 times a week for 30 - 45 minutes is recommended.
What format is the training delivered?
The trainings include videos, audio downloads, mp3, and PDFs where necessary. All are accessable from your smart phone, tablet/iPad on a free app. Or laptop/desktop computer. The coaching calls are via Zoom.
Is this just for thoroughbreds, or will it benefit other horses?
This will help with most green or young horses. Also horses that need to be re-schooled or re-trained. During the beta program we had an Arabian who competes in endurance join us. Happily, his tendency to bolt was addressed and remedied.
My horse is only coming off the track in a few weeks...
That is fine; you can choose to either go straight into working with your horse or allowing him time to adjust to the change himself; he will let you know what he needs. Either way the program is here and ready for you when you need it.
My horse has been off the track for years; we're already jumping...
I'm going to assume some issues are showing up that you are struggling to resolve. This program will definitely help you here. You can work through the program while continuing with your current training. This will compliment your schooling
What happens if I cannot ride for a week or two?
Life, and horses, happens - I get it. This is why, once you join, you will have lifetime access to everything. Also, due to the nature of the trainings, the true value will be in revisiting the different principles as you and your horse develop. This is truly a program which you will actually use long after you have completed the initial modules and trainings.
For how long can I access the material?
Forever. The program has lifetime access and is fully downloadable as well. Also, the weekly Q&As will go on indefinitely. Any updates or new materials will also be there for you to access, weeks, months or even years from now. Riding, by its very nature is a continous journey and I want this program to go with you on this journey for as long as you need it to.
Is there a refund policy or a guarantee in place?
Yes, if after the 10 weeks of following the program and doing the work, you feel that you and your horse have not benefited from it, we will give you a full refund. However we are committed to helping you get results in your riding. Horse riding is a personal journey - all riders will advance at different levels. We are committed to helping you move forward.
IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS, PLEASE EMAIL [email protected] AND WE WILL GET BACK AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
I'm Lorna Leeson and my goal is to help as many riders, just like you, as possible all over the world to have better conversations with their horses...
I am the host of the Daily Strides Podcast and have been successfully working with riders online for 7 years now.
After moving to South Africa, and working with mostly OTTBs, I developed a true love for thoroughbred horses. I have created this program to help address the issues that show up over and over for so many riders while retraining their ex-racehorses.
I am a trained riding instructor and have helped dozens of OTTB riders, both in-person and online, get on the same page with their horse.
My goal is that by week 10, both you and your horse have created a solid partnership, based on trust and communication, that you can build on for years to come.
I truly believe in this program and how valuable it will be for you. However, you alone are responsible for your actions and results which are dependent on personal factors including your commitment to improving your skills, your current knowledge, riding ability, dedication, consistency, how often you ride, your horse, your horse's current training level, to name just a few...
If, after completing this program in full, you believe that you and your horse have not made any progress, simply reach out and we will work with you privately to help you make progress with your horse.
This guarantee is dependent on your ability to show that you have applied the training, been consistent with your riding and training, and followed the program.
Horse riding is a personal journey - all riders will advance at different levels. We are committed to helping you move forward in a way that you can build on later should you wish to do so.
