AIM Unveils 'AIM Equine U' and Jim Wofford’s Jumping Academy

In keeping with its mission to offer top-notch equestrian content, Active Interest Media’s Equine Network is proud to present its official online learning platform: AIM Equine U. A web-based educational resource, it features exciting and relevant courses accessible 24/7 from any device with an internet connection.

In today’s fast-paced world, equestrians are busier than ever. What better way to learn than from the convenience of your own home computer, tablet or phone. “Online riding courses give riders another tool for becoming the best horsemen possible,” said Practical Horseman Editor Sandra Oliynyk. “You can watch and study a course, download diagram pdfs and take what you learn to the barn—and access the course anywhere on your mobile device. The best part is you can do it all in your own timeframe.”

The first courses are already in session: “Six Weeks to Better Jumping” and “Advanced Gymnastics,” presented by Practical Horseman Magazine. They are part of a series of courses collectively known as Jim Wofford’s Jumping Academy, developed using tried and true training techniques from this respected Olympic rider and coach—and longtime Practical Horseman columnist.

Following Wofford’s proven system of gymnastics―along with helpful video clips, special interactive features, check-ups and quizzes―you and your horse are sure to see improvement in your jumping style and ability. Better still, you can take your classes whenever it’s convenient for you! It’s the next best thing to private lessons with the master himself.

There’s even a bonus error-busting course for those who purchase the full course bundle. You can also purchase a video critique by Jim, in which you submit a short video of yourself riding for his analysis and suggestions.
