“Barb and Sandy are an incredible team, each bringing their own unique skills and perspectives to the arena. As coaches, they are gifted at breaking down big concepts for the cutting or cow horse competitor so we can apply them to our own horses in the best way possible. Their patience and persistence with me over the past few years have allowed me to grow exponentially as a rider, a competitor, and a horsewoman. Much of the success I have had with my cow horse is due to the riding mechanics and mental skills I have learned from their BeUnstoppable clinics. I can never thank them enough for all they’ve done to contribute to my growth and performance both in and out of the arena.” ~Paula Francis
