Real-life experiences from satisfied customers

For months now, I have been watching your show seeing all the nationally renowned folks that are so called trainers.

In most cases all I see is these people scaring and, in my opinion, abusing their horses. I do not like their methods. All they to want to do is sell their programs for an insane amount of money.

I watched the free videos, and I am extremely impressed with your methods. I do not believe in hurting a horse, and I can see your method is totally humane.


I recently bought a six-year-old Arabian Stallion, and I want to break him in. I’ve been ground working him for two years, and he’s never been ridden.

I’ve been looking for a training method that fits my budget, and I found Al Ragusin’s show. I’m eager to teach my horse how to dance and wondering if Al has any training DVDs to help me direct him and teach him to accept a rider and commands while on the saddle.

I’m also curious about how to size my horse for a new Australian saddle. I’m excited to try Al’s Double Rein method and turn my horse into a confident and willing partner.


I’ve been thinking about this for a while because I’ve met a lot of horsemen, but I think you’re among the best I’ve ever known.

I took note of you because of all you’ve done in the horse world, and that’s what got me started on the Double Rein method.

I can’t tell you how much I’ve learned from you, even though we’ve never met. You have so much to offer and teach, and I love how simple and effective your methods are for making horses safer, more confident, and willing.
