Our process teaches horses to be bold, confident and great problem solvers. Cost for clinic is $100.00 per participant. Spectators welcome $40 Both must be paid for in advance on the website at www.tophorseman.com We will provide warm drinks please bring lunch and snacks. This is an in hand clinic.

Working Equitation @ Donida Farm Equestrian Center
Feb 16 @ 10:00 am

 

work

Horses like variety. They want to have a job. This broadens a horse’s scope and teaches him to be a good partner in any equine sport you care to pursue. It is especially good for improving dressage skills. The obstacle course is not only fun, it hones your aids. For instance, at the lower levels the work is on basics like bending, leg yields and transitions. At the higher levels, doing flying changes around a line of poles gives them a visual reference for the timing and purpose of the change. Developing the collection and balance required to canter around a very tight set of cloverleaf barrels is an excellent interim step toward achieving good canter pirouettes. Plus, accustoming a horse to many of the obstacles serves a practical purpose, especially if he regularly goes out for a hack. He learns what it’s like to open and close a gate, jump a log on the path and cross a bridge. Class taught by Becky Mathews.
