Riders will receive instruction while working with their horses on the ground and mounted. Topics covered will span from riders’ position, effectiveness of aids, creating consistency and a soft horse, to overcoming fears and spooks. Riders, who are able, will have the opportunity to dive deeper into their skill set and work on more advanced skills including collection, spins, lead changes, transitions, one-handed riding, etc. All riders will have the option to participate in every scheduled session of the clinic. It is the desire of both Belles in Boots Productions and Diamond K Horses that each rider leaves this clinic with a more developed understanding of horsemanship as well as a deeper connection with their horse. Every effort will be made to accommodate each rider’s needs.
This event is limited to 10 Riders and open to Auditors.
Riders have the option to pay in Full at time of registration OR pay a deposit of $500 at registration with the remaining $475 due two weeks prior to the clinic. Please choose which option best suits your needs.
Auditors are advised to pre-register to ensure a seat and lunch each day.
