Remember the Difference….between an outstanding rider and a mediocre one is not primarily skill, but knowledge.
Knowledge is how to cooperate with and take advantage of the natural reflexes of the horse to achieve either basic or very complex maneuvers. Trying to develop skills through hours of practice is absolutely futile if you do not have this knowledge. Now it can be yours! Whether you are a novice or professional, English or Western, the RESISTANCE FREE® methods will improve and advance your riding and training program.
Richard Shrake is an educator, not an entertainer!
He is the trainer and showed the All-Around horse at the Quarter Horse Congress, instructed and coached over 40 World Champion youth and amateur winners in many breeds and judged 16 World Championship shows for five major horse breeds. Richard has trained and ridden in hundreds of horse shows all over the nation. His career is so extensive in every walk of the horse industry that his knowledge is undeniable. His teaching methods and ability to pass this on to all horse people is a gift that he shares with all who want to realize the maximum ability of their horse and themselves. His pleasure is to instill confidence, patience, knowledge and a complete step-by-step program for horse owners to accomplish their goals.
The Resistance Free horse training and riding methods have been a life long process for me to be able to share with you the knowledge of patience, kindness and obedience when working with horses and riders. I have trained and instructed for over 45 years and my goal is to pass this on to all horse people who want a program that works for them and their horse.
