"Developing the potential between a horse and human is my passion. I want to be part of the team you chose to get you to where you want to be with your horses." Barb Gerbitz

Clinic Atmosphere

Calm, patient, direct, honest, effective and supportive teaching creates a relaxed learning environment where students consistently demonstrate the freedom and 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?

 

Feedback

You will get honest input and feedback. As well as advice on things you can be doing to improve.

 

Experienced Instruction
Learn from someone with decades of experience who has learned through her own trials to find success with horse's.

"If you've gotten this far, I believe we already have some things in common and I would like to personally invite you to come join us at a clinic or schedule a Stay & Study or private lesson 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 with any breed of horse and welcome any caliber of rider." Barb
