Clinic Descriptions

Horsemanship

We strive for our horses to become willing partners.  The horse is so willing and always trys to please us.  If he understands what we want, he will offer it.  We can not say it much better than improving our timing, feel and balance. Communication improves first with an increase in awareness.

Ranch Cattle Work

Learning to become an asset on a working cattle ranch while creating a better relationship with your horse. You will work as a team with your horse and others as you perform the various activities to care for the cattle.  This includes but is not limited to, gathering, sorting, tracking, and reading cattle.

Intro to Ranch Roping

This is for those that would like to learn the basics of traditional cattle roping.  The topics covered are getting your horse ready for ropes, handling your rope, the horsemanship necessary to rope cattle, knot roping in a round pen, break away roping, all while teaching you to be safe, and ultimately getting you prepared to participate in a ranch roping class.  This class has the potential to be build upon in an advancing series.

Riding Outside

This class is designed for those who want to use their horsemanship to build a more confident horse out on the trail, in the open, in the woods and over natural obstacles. 

Groundwork

This class is designed for anyone wanting to improve their communication skills while working with the horse in hand.  It is a fantastic class for those wanting to develop a better trust with their horse when dealing with things like obstacles and even trailer loading.

Open Ride

This is a time we are riding our horses and are inviting those folks to come and practice.  We will be available to answer any questions while you ride.  You are welcome to come and watch us ride.

Newsletters

We send out an e-newsletter several times a year that generally includes a video tip and a few other educational tips to help folks further their horsemanship.  If you are interested in receiving these newsletters, please sign up for them at the bottom of this page.  A few examples are below.
