Creating Foundations for Life

MONTHLY MINI HORSEMANSHIP CLINICS

Clinic is taught by Alicyn Arnold, and is geared towards individuals who are wanting to refine their horsemanship skills and have a better partnership with their horse.   Each class size is small. max of 6 students. Commitment is minimal. Small and unassuming groups allow for many questions and lots of practice. 

Classes are topical in nature, but in every class:

----Refine your eye to seeing the changes a horse can make and the effort can give to make your ride even better.  Help your horse from the ground up to begin to be a soft, confident, and willing partner, proper flexing and bending, feel and timing of the feet, transitions, circles & serpentine, confidence building, seat, hand, & leg position. Possible riding outside the arena.

Each clinic is very flexible. Even though we will have a basic topic for that clinic, we can work on whatever you need, and answer whatever questions you have.  

The only equipment you will need is a rope halter, flag, snaffle bit, and saddle of your choosing. Nothing fancy.  If you are lacking any of these, please contact Alicyn.  We may be able to hook you up.
