2013 Clinic Schedule

Monday Sept 23rd

If you missed the last clinic in Mont Vernon, NH we are going to do it again as we had more interest!

 A $50.00  non-refundable deposit made out to Cathie Hatrick-Anderson will hold your spot.

If we have to cancel due to rain, you will get your full deposit check back

First hour is $70.00 second hour is $60.00 you can choose a one or two hour spot.

The farm call of $100.00 (it's almost 4 hours of driving for me)

will be divided among the horses that truck in.

If we have 4 outside horses attend, the  farm call is $25.00 your total is $95.00 private hour, me and you, one on one!

If you require two hours (trailer loading) or anything else that you think we need more time with. The first hour is $70.00 the second hour is $60.00

So you split the partial farm call of $25.00

       $ 155.00 total for two hours one on one.
If I have five out side horses price goes down.

$10.00 to audit/spectate.

    Bay State Trail Riders Association

 The May 11th clinic was changed to  June 15th 2013

                                                  From The Bugle -Bay State Trail Rider Association's news letter

                                                              Versatility Clinic with Cathie Hatrick-Anderson

This was an interesting clinic and a bit of an eyeopener. Cathie Hatrick-Anderson taught the clinic and I was very impressed with the job that she did. Learning to send you horse over an obstacle as opposed to riding over the obstacle was interesting indeed.
In this clinic I played with one of my horses, Junior. Now, keep in mind that he has been out on the trails his whole life and bridges are not an issue with him.So when I came to send him over the “bridge”obstacle, I fully expected him to just walk over it.
Not quite what happened. And I can’t blame it on the artificial flowers on the sides either. After some work, he did finally decided to walk up on the bridge. But instead of continuing on, he just stopped.OK, what do I do now? This exercise on sending them over is releasing the pressure at the obstacle itself so they basically make the decision to do it themselves. So, was I supposed to apply pressure in the no pressure zone or just wait until he woke up from his nap on the bridge and may-be move on??? This is where I hollered CATHIE-what do I do?????
Cathie figured since he was over the half-way mark it was OK to ask him to move along.Junior also turned out to be the most stubborn one on the “tarp with water” in it. No way he was going to touch that. I was patient with him and kept working at it.And yes, you are right, this gave me some major homework.
It was pretty cool to see the improvement with the other horses in the clinic and how Cathie worked with the issues that each one presented. Cheryl’s horse did real well considering it was just the third time that she had taken him out.Jane got to bring her other horse to Cathie this time and was well settled in. Kathy’s horse did well on the obstacles but had some work on just relaxing.
                                                               Thank you Cathie for a great clinic.
                                                                                                     Becky Kalagher,
                                Allowing Junior to rest at obstacle, he has to work when he's not thinking about it.
