with your horse.
“‘Wet saddle blankets
make good horses’ is a
saying handed down to
me from my father,” says
Jason, “and it has made a
lasting impression on me
and the way I approach
training horses. Giving
horses a variety of work,
that is always enough to get
a little sweat up under the
saddle blanket, develops
a sound, safe, reliable and
responsive horse. That is
why I love the sentiment
behind Huufe!
“Huufe encourages us
to go for longer, more
purposeful rides. And in
doing this, we are not only
having more fun, we are
also teaching our horses
to go the extra mile for
us, as well as reducing the
chances of behavioural

excited to be sharing some

I hope that they will help

Richard
Phillips, says:
“We are really excited to
be able to offer the Huufe

access

Jason’s training videos. We

Try them out, they are
