CLINICS

We're all in this together!

Clinic Atmosphere

Calm, patient, direct, honest, effective and supportive teaching creates a relaxed learning environment where students consistently demonstrate the ability to explore, learn and excel at a broad range of topics.

Clinic Expectations

Have you been looking for an informative, inspiring and challenging but supportive environment, where you can explore new concepts and develop your own horse, physically and mentally. As well as learn to develop meaningful, positive and productive relationships with any horse?


Are you looking for honest input and feedback? As well as advice on things you can be doing to improve?


Do you want to learn from someone with decades of experience who has shared many of the same struggles you are having and tried, failed and learned their way to success with horse's?


Your Personal Invitation 

If you've gotten this far I believe we already have some things in common and I would like to invite you to come join us at a clinic to work on you and your horse. I will meet you where you're at from young or green horse development to upper level riding of any discipline and any breed.
