Manola Mendez --Working with the Horse's Mind

Manolo Mendez, formerly the head rider of the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art, in Spain, does clinics around the globe now.  Blessi and I participated in one of his clinics.  It was amazing to see Manolo work with all types of horses and riders.  His in-hand work is especially impressive.  In this video, he talks about working with horse only when the horse's mind is engaged.  You can read more about his training methods at his web site:

One of these days, I have to get permission to post the video of Manolo's in-hand session with Blessi, Manolo's first encounter with an Icelandic horse.
