Wanted - Horse Lovers Who Want To Do It Better!

This Is A Brand New Release On DVD - One Of Our Greatest Horse Trainers & Breakers Shows You His Training Secrets.

John Pinnel was an Australian master horseman with more than 40 years of experience and incredible success - sadly he is no longer with us but his reputation lives on. 'After a short week with John Pinnell, even the worst horse will have been transformed into a useful mount or harness horse. - Tina Wommelsdorf, Ex Australian Dressage Champion.

"It's said that, in the area in which he lives, if John Pinnell were to shout 'Whoa', 98% of the horses in the area would stop!", Patricia Scott-Young

What John could do with a horse in just 7 days is truly amazing. He starts with a horse which has never before been handled and at the end has a completely tractable horse. This even applies to horses labelled 'unbreakable' by other horse breakers. - P J Hood, Racehorse Trainer

John Pinnell was trained by the legendary J D Wilton, the first and probably the greatest Australian 'Horse Whisperer', although he would never subscribe to that title! It doesn't matter if you break or train horses or you just want to improve your horsemanship, this DVD could be the key to your greater success.

Our double DVD Breaking to Saddle Harness shows how John Pinnell, in just seven days, takes 3 unknown horses and turns them into horses that any owner or rider would find responsive and a pleasure to ride.

You'll find John's easy going, practical style the ideal way to learn. He's practical, simple to follow and you'll learn his secrets quickly and easily. You'll also see for yourself why this man deserved the huge reputation he gained.
