The Essentials of Horsemanship

  • Sandalwood Ranch 3725 Norris Rd Williamston MI 48895 USA (map)

Most people spend a horses life trying to achieve their horsemanship goals. Everybody knows horsemanship is a journey of never-ending self-improvement. This clinic will empower and educate you to fast track your path to your goals by teaching your horse "The Essentials." Do not confuse this clinic as a basics clinic, as it is beyond the basics. It is The Essentials that are being missed (or not done with quality) by most horses and humans that I come across. This course will challenge you physically, mentally and emotionally. It will take understanding, patience and trust, and it's also going to take some courage, grit and focus. 

In this course you'll learn necessary skills and habits to achieve a respectful partnership; positive body positioning and proper footfalls to develop the horses' top-line. This will lead to a happy, healthy, powerful yet calm partner. You will be provided all the information you'll need to set you and your horse up for a successful life together. However, it will take more than two days for you to acquire these skills and habits, and it will be up to you to have the discipline and focus to continue to develop these Essentials to the point where they become second nature. 

If you're up for the challenge, I'd like to invite you to join in on the fun. Let's up your game and get you leading by example! See you down the trail!

2-day clinic, 9-4 each day
