 We have worked very hard to develop a clinic program that is affordable and appeals to riders of all levels.  We want to increase your enthusiasm for the sport by helping you and your horse achieve a partnership that will make you look  forward to riding your horse, so that you will find time to do it and enjoy it.  There is such joy in asking your horse to do more than you ever thought he/she could and then he/she does more. Additionally our Clinics try to supplement group support with individual attention. 

     Clinics are one day (generally) and start with an 8AM warm-up time. You will be welcomed with a complimentary continental breakfast (coffee and goodies) as well as the required safety waiver. Water will be furnished throughout the day. We start the lecture component promptly at 9AM. 
During which each rider will state their individual goal for the day. 

     We break for lunch around noon and you can bring your own sack lunch or  reserve a lunch when registering for the clinic and pay for it separately during lunch on the clinic day.

     We put-up our horses at 4PM and end the day with a very popular discussion and snack-time to assess your progress. Every rider will be given "homework" specific to the needs of their horse.  We encourage those wishing to stay to bring a snack to share with the group and your 
own beverage.

     This clinic is designed to help the novice equine enthusiast learn about basic body control such as lateral flexion and the more advanced rider who wants a review or is schooling a green horse. We will also get out of the arena and work on common trail issues such as herd bound behavior and barn sour behavior. We will approach common trail obstacles and how to best master them by making the right thing easy for you and your equine partner. This is a fun way to make your horse all he or she can be and is a prerequisite for  more advanced clinics.

     This clinic really puts it all together, and whether you just want to experience the fun of working a cow or plan to compete in cutting or reined cow horse events, this clinic has something for everyone.  A prerequisite for this clinic would be a working knowledge of at least intermediate horsemanship. This clinic is not for a beginner or   green horse. This is a fun-filled action packed clinic that starts with a brief review of horsemanship especially as it applies to roll backs and stops! We move on quickly to working the flag and live cattle. You may be asked to turn back or run cattle up the lane, we will keep you busy and smiling all day.  Deposit is non refundable unless clinic is cancelled. We will gladly credit your account if you are unable to attend.
