This clinic will run a morning group and an afternoon group each day. Each group will have a maximum of 4 riders, for a maximum of 8 riders total for the weekend. All clinic participants are encouraged to stay for the full two days and audit the other group.
This clinic is best suited to horse owners looking to safely spring back into the saddle, review some fundamental horsemanship skills, and gain some inspiration for all the horsin' around they hope to do this year.
We will group riders according to their horsemanship experience and skill level. Green horses and novice riders are certainly welcome as long as they can safely navigate a shared arena while mounted at the walk and jog. Each group will begin with a few groundwork exercises before mounting up. It is the spring after all and there may be a bit of rust, or some sillies to shake off!
What is Horsemanship?
Horsemanship is a skillset and knowledge base that allows humans to safely and beneficially partner with horses in a way that enhances the lives of both species. At Riding 4 Life, we are passionate about ensuring that our clients understand the most fundamental parts of this skillset and how to apply it for the best possible experience for both horse and handler/rider.
"Horsemanship demands our complete participation – BODY, MIND, and SOUL - and as humans, we can’t just “whisper” our way through it. In fact, I still cringe whenever I hear the term ‘horse whisperer’. It conjures enchanted and unlikely notions of a mystical experience with horses made complete only by the latest magical stick that serves as a Rosetta stone like talisman. While great tools and equipment are definitely worthwhile, they are all worthless until you come back down to earth and get a handle on the most important resource you already have – YOU!" -Leann Manuel
