“I think if there’s anything people can learn from me as far as equipment goes is that you don’t have to be a guru, you don’t have to be a master at any of those things to be able to use them. You just need to seek somebody out that is [an expert] and as them questions, then try to apply it the best you can.”

In her series on BarrelRacing.com, Saebens combines her expertise and horsemanship skills to give members tips and insights they can use in their own training. She covers a wide range of topics from rodeo mentality to bits, saddle fit, drills and much more.

“The series of videos we shot with Ivy Saebens will give people a unique look behind the scenes at Ivy’s day to day commitment to horsemanship and what that looks like,” said Bonnie Wheatley, content director for Barrel Racing Magazine and BarrelRacing.com. “Ivy works hard to establish a winning bond with her barrel horses and I think her advice will help others gain the necessary skills they need to do the same. It was a real treat to spend the day watching her work and I think people will benefit greatly from Ivy’s willingness to share her knowledge.”
