2018 Clinic Schedule
During Winter months how about learning a new way to lead your horse to stay safe going in and out of gates/stalls. Do you know there are many accidents that happen on the ground from pushy fearful horses? Use your down time to create a new relationship with your horse. Talk to your barn mates and lets get some dates in the book!

If My Horse Would Only...If only my horse would let me soak his feet. Allow me to deworm him, stand in cross ties, stand to be mounted, lower his head for the bridle, load on the trailer, lead better, stop crowding the gate, stop crowding me, back up, pick up his feet, stop pinning his ears. Fill in the blank_________ $20.00 per person.1/2 price if you pay in advance by Dec 13th This will be hands on or just watch, your choice! Take home techniques you practiced to your own horse.
