(prices apply unless otherwise indicated)
Max of 12 Riders
Learn the "Whys" and "Why Nots" of horse training. When coming to a clinic with Michael & Julia, they are going to provide you with your very own program that will allow you to reach the goals that you desire. Each clinic is tailored to the horse and riders needs. Come and expect to LEARN!
Michael firmly believes in giving each rider the tools they need to put the pieces together in their training. You should not expect your learning to end when the clinic is over! Each person will be prepared to take the exercises they have learned and be able to apply them to other horses, or to continue to perfect them on the horse they rode.
Come expecting to learn the lay down, the sit up, the sit down, the spanish walk, the smile, the come to cue, bow, come to the mounting block, and more. Each clinic is based on participants needs and wants. Each clinic may vary in what tricks are done because of this.
Each Day will start at 9:30am and run until sometime around 5:00pm. An hour lunch break will be provided at noon.
The first day will consist of a small group meeting to get to know everyone and to discuss what each individual is looking to get out of the clinic. Michael will then ask everyone to warm up as they generally do so that he can assess each persons riding levels and begin to create a program for you and your horse.
Be sure you are ready to ride! Do not come expecting to be able to skate under the radar and not interact. Please wear proper riding attire such as CLOSED TOE SHOES! We will not allow flip flops, or any open toed shoes in the arena.
Bring what it is that you prefer to ride in, though we strongly suggest having a snaffle bit and rope reins with you.
Also make sure to have a dressage whip.
Check our calendar to see if we have one on the books, or talk to us about setting up one near you!
