About the author:
Sharon Gates was born in Lucky Lake, Saskatchewan in 1944. Her mother was a school teacher/rancher; her father was a calf roper/rancher. Sharon has lived with horses all her life and turned to the horse business in the seventies to provide a living for herself and her three children. Wildwood Reining Horses is that business. Along the way, she wrote and published several horse training articles, poems, and anecdotal pieces. In 2010, she published her first book, A Life With Horses.
Sharon now resides in the Chilcotin region of British Columbia, where she breeds, trains and shows reining horses. She continues to write as time allows and recently has began a series of handbooks for reining horses. The first of this series is Spin Fixes.
Fifteen Ways to Improve Spins
Brenda Owen, Jordan Grier, Sharon Gates, John Woods, Ruby Haner
Spin Fixes is a reference manual for riders of reining horses. Fifteen common spin problems are listed with a clear explanation of each problem and detailed solutions. It is the goal of the author to give riders the tools to help their horses achieve a higher level of performance. If a rider does not have access to or cannot afford a coach, Spin Fixes can help. A Kindle edition of Spin Fixes is also available for immediate response in the arena or at a show.
Several photos are included and a quick reference included for ease of use.
Spin Fixes is the first of a series of Handbooks for Reiners. The second in the series is Stop Fixes, to be released spring 2013.
