Interested in building trust, confidence, and precise communication with your horse? Want to dazzle in Dressage, build boldness jumping, gymnasticize for rehab, train for trails, prepare for showing or other challenges? Or, just want to have fun?
Introduce your horse to novel objects and concepts when navigating obstacles, exposing them to sounds and unusual terrain. Relaxation and motivation techniques will be addressed as appropriate. Obstacles are a great way to give you and your horse measurable objectives to provide clarity in communication on the ground and under saddle. Clarity in use and understanding of the aids is a huge factor in any discipline.
We will explore using positive reinforcement in this process for those who are interested though it is not required. Traditional aids may be used. All disciplines are welcome to join in the fun and may go in hand on the ground, under saddle or both according to the comfort level of the horse and rider.
Boldness and a curiosity will be fostered and relationships will deepen during this clinic. The benefits of the clinic never cease to amaze the participants as unexpected results manifest in the hearts of horses and their humans. Join us and take another stride on the journey to understanding and enjoying your horse like never before!
