Alternative Horsemanship with Samantha Harvey Full Immersion Clinic #2 @ The Equestrian Center, Sandpoint ID
Jul 23 @ 8:00 am – Jul 25 @ 5:00 pm

What is a Full Immersion Clinic?
There have been requests for “camp weeks” from individuals who would like to experience more than a one-hour lesson working with their horse. In response, I developed the “Full Immersion Clinic” as an opportunity to address a variety of topics with riders mounted and working from the ground, to offer a more in depth immersion experience. These Friday through Sunday clinics focus on Assessment, Ground Work & Riding.

Who may participate?
From novice to advanced riders, I encourage participants of all ages, disciplines and experience levels. Horses may range from un-started colts to experienced competitive horses, and everything in between. This is not a “discipline specific” clinic. Maximum of eight participants.

Can I bring more than one horse?
Yes. One horse is included in the participant fee, if you would like to bring an extra horse to “split” sessions with, there is a $10/day fee.

Can I participate if I don’t have my own horse?
At this time I have two lesson horses available that are offered on a first come basis (depending on the order registration is received.)

Why no clinic “format”?
This is an opportunity to learn more about you, your horse and perhaps find some seemingly insignificant or unintentional “holes” in the foundation of your relationship. These may be influencing the quality of the partnership with your horse and are affecting your end goals. This is a safe, supportive opportunity where you are encouraged to take the time to really slow down and think about how, what and why you’re communicating with your horse. By watching other participants, we often begin to see similarities in our own horsemanship.

It can be a great way to offer perspective and offer participants both short and long term realistic direction for them and their horse. Beyond this basic outline the structure and focus of the clinic will depend on the participants and their interests. Whether you are a trail rider, jumper, pleasure rider or endurance rider and everyone else, there is much to be discovered!

How long is a session?
A clinic day begins at 8 a.m., with about an hour lunch break midday, and ends around 5 p.m. I do not work by the clock but individual time is roughly 45 min to 1 1/2hrs several times in a day and group ride time longer. There is a lot of group discussion in between rides further discussing things that arose in each person’s session.

Is the instruction individual or group?
Both. Initially everyone gets one on one time, and then depending on the student and their horse’s needs, they will continue to have individual time and/or group instruction.

What tack do I need?
The only requirement is that all riders must wear an ASTM approved riding helmet. There are helmets available to borrow for the clinic for a $10 fee. Otherwise, tack is often assessed, adjusted for proper fit, etc. throughout the clinic.

How do I register?
If you would like to participate, as of January 1, I will be accepting a nonrefundable 40% deposit to guarantee participant slots. Visit the Registration page for participant paperwork and payment options.

What does the clinic cost?

The cost to participate in the three day clinic is $600.

May I audit?
Auditors may pay a daily or a discounted three-day fee. You are encouraged to participate in all relevant group discussions. The auditor fee is $35/day.

What is included in the price?
Daily un-mounted theory discussions, tack/equipment fitting & usage, individual and group instruction and pasture board (grass hay) for your horse. There are four 12×12 uncovered stalls available on a first come, first serve basis- and must reserved at the time of your registration submission. (You are responsible for cleaning your own stall.)

Julie Carpenter Horsemanship Clinic @ Bridle Trails State Park
Jul 24 – Jul 28 all-day

July 24-28: (5 Day)  Julie Carpenter Horsemanship From The Heart Clinic

Julie Carpenter’s experiences as a horse trainer, yoga instructor and life coach have served to make her uniquely qualified to offer riders from all walks of life a way to better their partnership with their horse. 

When a horse’s thought is more important than the rider’s thought, resistance builds. When there is clarity in what a horse is being asked, a horse can learn to let go of a thought – to relax and submit willingly to a julierider’s direction. When the horse is not resisting, muscles can relax and stretch, allowing the horse’s overall development and balance to occur naturally.

This clinic will work on ground to saddle and arena to trail, refining the art of horsemanship and  communication between horse and rider.  More softness, improving the clarity in how we ask the horse, really getting your horse to be with you, are all worked on.  There will be both individual sessions and group work. 

You will learn new skills that you can take home to help you refine your horsemanship.  You’ll learn about keeping your horse’s thought and attention with you whether you are riding at home, out on a trail or at a show. 

All disciplines welcome!  Julie has the ability to help you and your horse without overwhelming either of you.  Julie’s keen desire to help people and horses creates an atmosphere of positive energy, kindness and enthusiasm.

This California resident has been coming to Washington for over 10 years providing instruction and support to numerous students.  Lake Washington Saddle Club is sponsoring a five day clinics with Julie. 

   

 Clinics will be held at Bridle Trails State Park, rain or shine.  Clinic will have six participants.  Over the course of the clinic participants will work with their horses from the ground (at liberty and in-hand) and in the saddle. 

July 5 Day Clinic Fee: Cost $1,130.00 – Deposit of $600 is due at time of registration.  Entire fee is non-refundable unless the spot can be filled.   Auditors are welcome for a fee of $25.00 a day.  LWSC members may audit at no charge.  Self care stalls available for $25.00 a day, bring your own bedding. Stalls must be left stripped clean or additional charges apply.

The Mane Event @ Chilliwack Heritage Park
Oct 25 – Oct 27 all-day

Welcome to the Mane Event Expo Chilliwack

For over 15 years The Mane Event has hosted some of the best and most knowledgeable horse trainers and educators from North America and beyond! With the help of our trade show exhibitors and attendees we have become Canada’s largest horse expo. We pride ourselves on providing education on cutting edge training methods, equine health, equine entertainment and of course the largest and most diverse equine only trade show in Canada.

Come and experience what our attendees call “The Mane Event


Clinics

Informational clinics from some of the top trainers available to provide information on how to improve your riding skills, training or handling of your equine partner. No matter if it’s in Jumping, Dressage, Reining, Barrel Racing, Back Country Rides, Driving or General Horsemanship you will see it at The Mane Event.

Presentation & Seminars

Up to date presentations from a variety of vendors, veterinarians and experts on Saddle Fitting, Supplements, Nutrition, Health, Travel and new products.

Trainers Challenge

This is where you see a young colt begin its education from some of the best colt starters in the industry. We have 3 trainers compete on their ability to take an unbroke colt on Friday and provide a solid beginning over the 3 days of the event in a round pen and then take them to the arena to show what they have accomplished. BUT remember that both The Mane Event and the trainers involved in this event stress that the training of any horse is not done in 3 days and it takes far more time than is provided at the show. Training a colt is always better from a trained professional and would take months of good training to provide a good solid mount.

 

 

 

Equine Experience

Our schedule is packed with clinics/presentations designed to educate and entertain the horse enthusiast and when your brain is full you can kick back and relax and watch our Equine Experience show on Saturday night for the unique presentation of local drill teams, trainer performances, trick riding and much more!.

Equine Only Trade Show

Our always popular Equine Trade Fair has some of the largest and best vendors providing some of the best equine shopping under one roof. There is something for everyone, whether horses are your passion or you are just beginning your horse journey. Come out and experience The Mane Event!

Unfortunately due to negligent dog owners not picking up after their dogs we have no choice but to not allow dogs at the Mane Event in the Trade Show or Arena Buildings.
