Ozark Mountain MiniTack.Com Releases First DVD in Pony Primer Educational Series
Excellent Training Tool for New & Returning Pony Exhibitors Now Available
Gassville, AR — Ozark Mountain MiniTack.com, long a respected source for educational DVDs and videos about Miniature Horses, is pleased to announce the creation and release of the first DVD in a new Pony Primer Series.
The new series of pony-related DVDs created by Smoke-In-Motion focuses on how to properly and professionally prepare and present your show pony. The DVD is especially suited for newcomers getting involved with American Shetlands, but much of the information presented will also be helpful to those interested in American Show Ponies or Hackneys.
In the pony world, many newcomers are coming to the industry with a big-horse background or skills much different that what is needed for successfully showing ponies. Where do you start if you are a new Shetland or American Show Pony owner? What if you are a long-time pony enthusiast returning to the show world after many years who is overwhelmed by the changes and expansion to the American Shetland divisions? What if you simply need to brush up on the latest techniques in show pony preparation?
Then, the new Pony Prime series developed by Smoke-In-Motion exclusively for Ozark Mountain MiniTack.com can help!
“As a new pony exhibitor headed to my first National Shetland Congress this August, I found this DVD very helpful,” said new Shetland owner Debbie Weaver. She added, “I was really glad to be able to learn and see examples of how to properly show at halter before competing at the national level.”
The first DVD in the Pony Primer series is “Pony Halter with Amber Montgomery.” Montgomery, from Alexandria, IN, is one of today’s most successful professional pony and small equine trainers. She is also a highly sought-after licensed judge in the pony industry. Known for her work in training new judges, conducting continuing education for judges and working with junior judging programs, Montgomery is a natural choice to present this first pony DVD.
Smoke-In-Motion’s “Pony Primer - Pony Halter w with Amber Montgomery” runs one hour and 58 minutes. In it, Montgomery utilizes her expertise and experience as a trainer, exhibitor and judge to teach viewers how to properly and professionally show a pony at halter. She explains the difference between the American Shetland divisions - Classics, Foundations, Modern Pleasures and Moderns – and demonstrates how to prepare ponies for their correct class. The Modern Shetland portions of the DVD dovetail well for exhibitors with American Show Ponies or Hackneys.
The video includes demonstrations of each type of pony including how to do the correct set-up and rail or movement work. Proper grooming and equipment for each class are covered in detail. Bonus footage of an actual show is provided at the end of the DVD. Additional titles in the Pony Primer series are presently in the planning stage.
