The Horsemanship Fundamentals clinics take a deep look into helping your horse understand what you’re asking from him so that he can cooperate willingly.
Carson will cover some vital groundwork, creating life in your horse, front end control, hind end control, speed control, rein management, foot placement, stops, balanced turns, shoulder control, and many other topics that focus on small adjustments that all come together to make big changes. You will learn to look for and feel these small changes that many horse owners miss or dismiss as unimportant, but in reality, they are what make all the difference.
A less experienced horse/rider will be given a good foundation to build upon while a more experienced horse/rider will work on refining the elements mentioned above.
To participate in these clinics, you need to be able to walk, trot, and lope your horse under saddle. Preferred headgear is an O-Ring Snaffle, Traditional Hackamore, or Halter.
Details: Limited stalls will be available for $30 (includes shavings) on a first-come, first-served basis. Contact Karen Holgate at 352-502-2124 or by email to reserve or with questions.
