Train Your Mini to Be All He Can Be Longeing • Dressage • Tricks • Driving • Jumping Sabine Ellinger
Turn your pint-size package into a head-turning performer! The first book of its kind for Mini lovers, Mini School takes the training and conditioning of Minis as seriously as that of their full-size cousins. With real, honest-to-goodness in-hand work that promises a relaxed, supple body and collected frame as well as obedience, you're given the tools to transform your cuddly companion into a sleek, well-muscled athlete and a talented entertainer. You'll find valuable information on:

• How Minis learn, with discussion of both "learning through association" and "learning through success," and ways to manage factors that impact your Mini's ability to absorb new lessons

 • Work on the longe line, long lines, and long reins, with special instruction on the proper use of side-reins and whip cues

• Popular tricks loved by audiences and Minis alike — bowing, kneeling, sitting, lying down, and rearing, to name a few

• Lateral work, including leg-yield, shoulder-in, haunches-in, and half-pass

• Dressage movements in-hand, such as pirouettes, piaffe, passage, and levade

• Conditioning through interval training and cross-training, featuring canter work, driving, cavalletti, and jumping gymnastics

• Plus a dictionary of voice commands and tips on how to use them
