Dear Fellow Horse Lover,

If you have a young horse that’s ready to start under saddle (maybe even several young horses), you’ve probably been agonizing over whether to send it off to a trainer.

Not only is that option expensive, but it’s hard to know if you can really trust someone else with your prized animal. Or maybe you just want to be able to say, “I trained him myself!”

If you’ve been searching for sensible, easy-to-understand, NATURAL Horse Training advice, I’ve got some exciting news!

The horse industry sometimes has a lot of “smoke and mirrors.” You can watch a dozen different horse training seminars or videos and get a dozen different answers for the same problem.

Maybe all dozen answers are correct – but that doesn’t mean those methods are ones that normal folks like you and I can easily understand and repeat.

Or perhaps you’re frustrated because every time you reach for an answer to a question, you’re told to buy another video in a series or you’re told that you need to buy some outrageously expensive piece of “special” tack.

Now you CAN get a proven horse breaking system, explained in specific, easy-to-follow steps. A natural horse breaking system based on resistance-free concepts, with an emphasis on SAFETY for both you and your horse.

And on this page, I’ll show you how…

Because, let’s face it, horses aren’t just a money investment. For folks like us, they’re family. We agonize over them like we do our children. And we want the best for them.

I’ve been around horses just about all my life, since my father brought home a pony in the back seat of an old Buick car when I was 3 years old. I trained our family’s ponies when I got older, based on nothing more than advice from my older sisters (who also had no formal training) and what “felt right.”

I made a lot of mistakes. And I dealt with the results of other peoples’ mistakes in ponies and horses that were scared, aggressive, barn sour, bolters…the list of poor – even dangerous -- behaviors caused by mishandling and poor training is almost endless.

Even as a child, I realized there ought to be a better way to do it.

In recent years, because of physical problems, I can no longer start my own young horses under saddle. Since I breed horses, I suddenly found myself with several young horses that had no job in life.

In other words, a lot of expensive pasture ornaments. “Whoa!” I said to myself. “I’ve got to find a trainer for these guys.”

But when I started to research horse trainers, I got a whole new kind of education:

  • The horse industry, like everything else, has gotten very specialized. You can find advice on training your horse to rein, rope, halter, western pleasure, or barrel race. Good general, all-around, basic advice for just getting colts started riding is harder to find.
  • Trainers are expensive! Costs can range anywhere from $400 to more than $1,000 per month. And that’s usually just board and training fees. You also have transportation to and from the trainer and the other standard expenses such as farrier and vet work.

  • Then there’s the big issue of how to find the RIGHT trainer for your horse.

There are lots and lots of good, honest, dependable trainers who do an excellent job. But there are also a lot of so-called “horse trainers” who talk a good game and have no clue what they’re doing.

I know a number of people who have horrifying “bad trainer” experiences, ranging from horses being starved into submission to horses being beaten or spurred to the point of having permanent scars.

So, I was starting to feel a bit like one of those book characters lost in a deep Southern swamp, with no clue what direction I needed to go. Then I stumbled up on Trainer Tim Matthew.

Tim’s a soft-spoken guy who spent years working as a cowboy in Montana and other western states, breaking out ranch horses. He’s adjusted his training methods over the years into a resistance-free, logical, step-by-step system.

The more I talked with him and heard his theories, and watched him put those theories into action – the more I wished other horse people could benefit from his horse breaking wisdom.

Well, now you CAN benefit from that wisdom with Horse Training Advice: Trainer Tim Matthew’s Step-by-Step Guide.

In this 43-page book, Tim details each step of his horse breaking system for starting colts in every-day language. More than 20 close-up, high-quality photographs illustrate the various stages of his system.

There’s NO GUESSWORK with Tim’s method – you’ll know exactly what to do, when you should do it, and how you should do it -- every step of the way when you’re training your young horse.

You’ll learn the following from Tim’s horse breaking system:

  • The single most important command you’ll teach your young horse. (You may well be surprised at the answer to this one – I was!)

  • Why you must establish a “contract” with your horse every time you interact with it. This is a unique concept – and it’s the basis for everything you do with your horse.

  • What tools and tack you’ll need. (Hint: it’s nothing more than basic items you already should have in your tack room.)

  • Why you don’t need any tricks, toys, games, or expensive, “special” tack. Nada, zilch, zero. Just you, your horse, and the basic items mentioned in the bullet above.

  • Why you don’t ever set a time frame for training your horse. This goes against a lot of standard theories – but it allows you and your horse to progress at a pace that’s comfortable for your young horse.

  • Whose fault it is when your horse can’t seem to learn a certain lesson – and what you must do to correct the problem. It’s all just a matter of finding the proper way to communicate with your horse.

  • How to know if your young horse is ready to train under saddle. There’s no magic age when a horse is ready to ride. So, how do you know when to start?

  • Why consistency, patience, and consistency are so important in starting young horses. Losing your temper, lack of patience, and inconsistency are the “deal killers” in horse breaking.

  • How to get your young horse to respect your personal space. Do you have one of those horses that’s always stepping on you, bumping you, and otherwise showing no respect? Tim’s system is built around the concept of maintaining a safe personal space when working your colt!

  • What is the most dangerous thing we, as handlers, do with horses on a regular basis? Tim explains, and demonstrates ways to do it more safely.

  • What is the most dangerous step in saddling a horse? Again, Tim explains what this is and why, and describes the safest way to carry out this task.

  • Why you shouldn’t worry if your colt bucks on the lunge line the first few times he’s saddled. In fact, this behavior might be beneficial in the long run – Tim explains why.

  • How to teach your horse to ground tie, and why this lesson is vitally important to your entire training process. This isn’t just a “movie horse” trick – it’s something every well-started riding horse should do.

  • Okay, so your colt is lunging under saddle – now what? How can you tell when it’s time to get actually get on him for the first time?

  • Why working your young horse in repetitions of three during a training lesson is important. Tim explains how he developed this process, and explains exactly how to do it.

  • How do you teach your horse to flex its neck – and why is that important? (And no, you don’t leave your horse with its head tied around to the saddle for hours on end!)

  • Why should you limit the amount of time you lunge your horse before a lesson? Tim has a common sense explanation that ties in with his whole training process.

  • Why you want your horse to face you on the lunge line when you “whoa” him. Some trainers say you should never look a horse in the eye – Tim explains why that’s a fallacy.

  • What the “heart attack zone” is when you’ve got your young horse in the round pen. This is an important safety measure to help keep both you and your horse safe during training lessons.

  • How you develop enough control over your horse that grooming, handling hooves, bathing, clipping, etc., don’t become major wars. We’ve all seen those horses that have to be drugged to have their hooves trimmed, or to be clipped, right? Tim’s training process shows you how to get your horse to calmly accept these activities.

  • Learn an easy, simple method for sacking out your young horse. You don’t have to scare your youngster to death flapping tarps or garbage bags around him. Sacking out is a much less stressful event, using Tim’s process.

  • Learn why you should always “send” your horse to the left first when working in the round pen. Again, this becomes a safety issue when you’re ready to start riding your young horse.

  • Learn how to take your young horse from green to well-started in simple, logical stages. Tim’s training process explains how in easy language. You’ll feel like he’s sitting there talking to you.

…and more!

If you follow Tim’s horse breaking process step by step, you’ll have a well-mannered, well-started young horse when you finish – a colt that has confidence in you and that’s safe and a pleasure to ride.

Your young horse will then be ready to move on to whatever discipline you want – roping, reining, barrels, trail horse – wherever its athletic talent and your interests lie.

What does Tim mean by well-started? He says it’s a horse that “anyone who has a basic aptitude for horses will be able to ride.”


Hi, Good book. Thanks for all the excellent advice......I have done more flexing and backing and working on the "stand" command, as suggested, and also, crucially, have changed the time I work her to after all the stable chores have been completed and everywhere is more peaceful. The combination has produced a really relaxed mare who I have now mounted and walked quietly.

Two things from your book I have found particularly helpful are to do things in threes, and to lead her around after and between tasks to encourage her to relax - me too, I suspect!

I recently bought a young stallion from Tim Matthew. I believe Tim had put about 30 days of training on this horse. The ground work Tim did with him was just phenomenal -- even as a stallion, his ground manners are "second to none." As far as riding is concerned, this colt has good collection and good transitions, either speeding up or slowing down. You can easily slow him from a fast run into a nice collected lope. He side passes both left and right, and was well started on roll backs and stops. As far as what Tim put in front of this colt and the information the colt took in, you couldn't ask for better. I highly recommend Tim's training methods.

I’ve sent two of my young horses to Tim for training and was amazed with what he accomplished in 30 days. I’ve seen horses that went to other trainers that didn’t learn that much in 90 days! My horses bloomed under Tim’s training system. They came home not only well started under saddle but with excellent ground manners. And they both were very attached to Tim, so it’s obvious his system helps a person bond with his or her horse. I’m just now starting to use Tim’s training system on another young horse, and I’m looking forward to the same great results!

When I first received Horse Training Advice: Trainer Tim Matthew’s Step-by-Step Guide, I sat down with the intention of reading it carefully, one step at a time, and making notes about how to use it with my horse. Instead, I was totally immersed in the book and read straight through in one sitting!  Now I’m going back and making my notes. I believe Tim’s system will be very useful in working with one particular mare I have – she’s never been started under saddle because she was badly mishandled before I got her. Tim’s system, I believe, is just what I’ve been searching for to allow me to reach this mare’s mind and get her working under saddle.

A. Fulmer, Prattville, Alabama

Here’s what you’ll get in Tim Matthew’s Step-By-Step Guide to Horse Breaking!

  • A 43-page horse breaking book, written in an easy, conversational style. It seems like Tim is sitting right there talking you through his horse training process.

  • More than 20 close-up, high-quality photographs, to illustrate Tim’s concepts.

  • Each and every step you’ll need to follow for the whole training process, explained in detail.

  •  Safety tips built into Tim’s horse breaking system, designed to help you and your horse avoid potential “wrecks.”
  • A system you can use to start basically any breed or type of horse or pony under saddle. Recently, Tim started a warmblood cross under saddle, using the same exact training system described here. The gelding went straight into dressage training after that, and the new owners were extremely complimentary about how well the colt was started.

 …and you’ll be able to download everything online in the next two minutes. The files are in easy-to-manage Adobe Acrobat; all you’ll need to read or print them is Adobe Acrobat reader.

How much is a well-started, mannerly horse
worth to you?

How much more valuable will your horse be with training like this?

Think about the training fees a system like Tim’s can save you!

If you sent your horse to Tim or another trainer to be started under saddle, you’d pay several hundred dollars per month. The total could easily wind up in the thousands, depending on the trainer and how quickly your horse progressed.

Tim has agreed to share his system because he loves horses – and he believes the more knowledge people gain about training and handling their horses, the more the horses will benefit.

Not only that, you’ll be able to download Tim’s system to your computer and read it right now. Of course, you can also print it and take it to the barn with you. You can start training your colt immediately, using this tried and true system of resistance-free training for your young horse.

Tim’s horse breaking system is just now being released to the public for the first time. A value-laden training system like this typically sells for upwards of $100. However, Tim’s primary goal is ultimately to benefit horses. Helping to educate horse owners is one way to achieve that goal.

Tim wants Horse Training Advice: Trainer Tim Matthew’s Step-by-Step Guide to be affordable for all horse lovers who want to improve their horse-handling knowledge and skills.

Also, because Tim has recently relocated, he’d like to get some additional testimonials from new customers.

When you order Horse Training Advice: Trainer Tim Matthew’s Step-by-Step Guide today, you’ll get the following bonuses:

Bonus 1: The Story of Kate and Queen, by Professor Jesse Beery. (Cost: $15.00) This book, by Professor Beery, a world-renowned horse trainer of the early 1900s, is out of print and hard to find. It’s probably worth much more than the quoted cost of $15.00.

This fascinating book is written from the horses’ point of view, in the manner of Black Beauty. Kate and Queen represent two extremes of a spectrum: one a horse “trained” to be vicious and crazy through mishandling and abuse, and one widely known for its good temper because of proper, gentle training methods. Professor Beery makes the point that the good-tempered mare was trained using his own methods.

Bonus 2: From Prof. Beery’s famous 1908 eight-part mail order guide to training horses, you’ll get Lesson No. 2, Disposition and Subjection. (Cost: $25.00 – Prof. Beery’s complete 8-part training course typically sells for more than $100.)

In Lesson 2, Prof. Beery talks about four dominant disposition types in horses, and how horses can be a combination of more than one disposition. It’s also a fascinating study of how modern horse training methods have adapted the best portions of such early methods and refined them.

For example, Prof. Beery’s subjection methods, while safe and non-abusive to a horse if performed correctly, typically would not be needed when using a modern horse training system such as Tim’s.

Bonus 3: Also from Prof. Beery’s famous 1908 eight-part mail order guide to training horses, you’ll get Lesson No. 8, Trick Training. (Cost: $25.00 – Prof. Beery’s complete 8-part training course typically sells for more than $100.)

In Lesson 8, Prof. Beery builds on his theory of the four disposition types to explain what kind of temperament is needed for a good trick horse. He teaches you to train horses tricks such as:

  • Teach a horse to say “Yes” and “No”
  • Teach a horse to Walk, Trot, and Gallop on Command (free style)
  • Teach a horse to Appear Vicious
  • Teach a horse to Jump
  • Teach a horse to Stand Erect (Rear)
  • Teach a horse to Fire a Gun
  • Teach a horse to Pull a Handkerchief out of a Pocket

And many more!

And of course, these bonuses are yours to keep even in the unlikely event you take advantage of our money-back guarantee.

Remember, if you want to train your own young horses, without spending hundreds of dollars on trainers – if you want to be able to say “I trained him myself!” --you don’t want to miss out on this step-by-step horse breaking guide!
