Sean Patrick, author of the bestselling book and 4-disk DVD set entitled THE MODERN HORSEMAN’S COUNTDOWN TO BROKE, offers great clinics all year long in his sunny New Smyrna, Florida, facility. Who doesn’t think Florida sounds good at the end of January?

Sean spent over a decade as a high-country guide and packer, and now focuses on performance horse training, colt starting, working with challenging horses, horsemanship instruction, and writing. His book is praised as “superbly organized” and “one of the best books for starting horses that is currently on the market,” and the four DVDs featuring progressive lessons are the perfect complement, allowing you to follow along in “real time” as Sean works with one of his own horses through his 33-step Countdown.

Both Sean’s book and DVD set are available from the TSB online bookstore, where shipping in the US is always FREE.
