Clinic Descriptions

Horsemanship

We strive for our horses to become willing partners.  The horse is so willing and always tries 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.

Do it on the trail with Confidence

This series is designed for a rider who is ready to overcome their apprehension and fears that have held them from fully enjoying their horse and become increasingly confident outside of the arena.  We have created a class that includes 6 days here, conference calls, weekly questions, and review of videos of the participant for feedback, and practice with a fellow participant.  We will be teaching riders the skills to continue to feel successful after the class is complete, how to support your fellow rider, how to support your horse before he gets troubled, how to overcome challenges faced when riding out, as well as a better understanding of yourself and your horse to help you move through your current barriers.  This class is limited to 6 riders.  Please call for more information.  

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 ranch 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 built 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.  Riding outside always brings challenges.  We will work with you to develop your leadership skills that will build your confidence as well.  There is so much your horse is offering you and this class will help you feel and respond in such a way as to develop lightness and trust.

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.

 

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.
