Join us for a 3-day horse clinic, June 14-16, 2023. 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.


Day 1 -  Participants will focus on fundamental horsemanship which is the basis of all disciplines of riding. It will help riders become in tune with using their seat and legs as aids to move their horse fluidly through the trail obstacles which will be done during the afternoon. Clinicians are Tim Hennen & Bailey Turner.

Day 2 - Will focus on showmanship skills, practicing a variety of patterns, and learning practicing techniques that can easily be done at home. Later in the day participants will learn the differences between Western Pleasure and Rach Pleasure. Clinician is Cheyenne Hulstein.

Day 3 - This day will focus on horse hoof health. Participants will learn about the importance of caring for your horses' hooves, and the signs and symptoms to watch out for. Important steps to prevent lameness and expectations your farrier has for you as a horse owner.  Participants will spend time going over groundwork exercises to keep you safe while working with our horses and important training methods that should be implemented before ever putting your foot in a stirrup. The games clinic will focus on the four 4-H game classes: barrels, poles, jumping figure 8, and keyhole.  Participants will spend time going through slow, pattern work and finish the day with a mini-show. Clinicians are Kelsey Klassen and Nick Pease.

Negative Coggins are required for each horse.
