“This is an excellent resource for the horseman wishing to have the added protection of warm-up exercises before riding. David Nelson is very knowledgeable and definitely has the well-being of the rider at heart.” John Lyons, Equestrian Clinician

“I fully endorse David’s program on preventing back injuries. He taught me a great deal on preventing injuries and I am now implementing his approach. I have not had a single episode since following his principles.” Janet DelCostello, author Backyard Racehorse

“Several of my borders show their horses professionally while others ride simply for pleasure. I have shared David’s video with all of them and I am happy to report that we have not had a single person suffer from the debilitating malady of low back pain. His seminar literally put me back on my horse again after suffering years of back pain.” Marcia Lynn Hearndon, owner Two Feathers Stables, Vero Beach Florida

“We so enjoyed having you at our convention. We received several compliments and we all learned a lot. You were well received and I, for one, will immediately begin following what you taught us.” Erica Keeny, American Ranch Horse Association.
