    Question about training videos

    My friend is thinking of filming some training videos. She wanted to use three different horses (on that is extremely reactive, one that is extremely dull, and one middle of the road horse) showing all the same exercises with each horse. She says that, although the overall result, and method of obtaining it is similar, there would be small differences from horse to horse. She says that people would benefit from seeing this, but I say that it would take up too much time on the DVDs, and the DVDs would cost too much because of the added costs. To settle this, I have created a survey (see link below), or you can just leave your opinion on this forum. Thanks.

    I think it really depends on what the exercise is that's being demonstrated. I can see that being very helpful in some circumstances, but completely unnecessary in others. One of my biggest complaints with training videos is that they rarely show a horse that hasn't done the exercise AT ALL. So, when you go to work with your own horse you don't always know how to get started.

    I don't think you can charge more because there are more horses in the video- that's really just not how it works. The amount you can charge is based largely off the trainer's reputation and how much other, similar DVDs cost. The costs to produce the DVD might go up a little bit if it's longer (particularly if you're hiring a professional to edit it) but the costs of stamping each DVD shouldn't vary much. People might pay more if it's a multi-DVD set, but generally won't pay more for twice as much content on one DVD (weird how people work sometimes).

    I like the idea. I wish that training videos would always use at least one horse that is typical and one that's of the more challenging type.
