Horse&Rider OnDemand, the full-service Western horsemanship video site curated by the editorial staff of Horse&Rider, is proud to announce the release of a fresh series of videos from world champion trainers Bud Lyon and Brad Barkemeyer.
Captured this spring in beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona, the new footage will begin to roll out through ondemand.horseandrider.com April 29 featuring horsemanship skills applicable to any level of horse enthusiast.
“Our goal with Horse&Rider OnDemand is to help you solve your riding and training problems and achieve your riding goals with a full video library and weekly releases of new training videos, that you can access from your computer or your smartphone, with two of Horse&Rider’s trusted contributors,” Managing Editor Nichole Chirico said. “With the new videos we shot this spring, you’ll learn everything from basic horsemanship skills designed for riders of any Western disciplines to ranch riding and reining maneuvers to cow horse and rope horse exercises. Brad and Bud also run through some of their daily horse-care practices and show you proper use of tack and gear.”
The Horse&Rider OnDemand platform releases two new videos each week, year-round, from Lyon and Barkemeyer, taking a deep dive into Western horsemanship with videos that focus on everything from perfecting your lope departures to solving barn-sour problems. The new footage will build on the success of the first series, serving its growing audience of horse enthusiasts from across the globe.
“Throughout my lifetime I’ve been gifted with the knowledge and experience from some of the best horsemen in the Western performance horse industry,” Lyon, who was the 2018 AQHA senior ranch riding world champion, said. “It’s my privilege to be given the opportunity to pass that information on to those who are interested in furthering their understanding of the nuances required for the reining and ranch riding disciplines.”
The OnDemand service also features videos on gear selection and use, including adjusting training tools, selecting tack to fit each horse, and grooming horses for their health and appearance.
“I’m very excited to be involved with Horse&Rider OnDemand; we have a lot of great information that we can’t wait to share with you,” Barkemeyer, who has earned top honors as a trainer in AQHA, NRCHA, and World Series of Team Roping Championship events, said. “This OnDemand program is a great opportunity to expand your knowledge of Western horsemanship from the very beginner to the highly trained professional.”
