Building a Foundation - Confidence and Speed Control

351 Hamptons Road, Broadfields, Christchurch 8042

Type: 2 Day Clinic
Level: Beginner - Intermediate
Savvy: Online and Freestyle riding

To create a great partnership with your horse, it is important to have a strong foundation - clear communication and a blue print to follow on how to develop our horses so they can become calm, confident and reliable partners, all the way up to happy athletes depending on what our goals are and what we intend on doing with our horses whether that be riding down the beach/trail riding, dressage, jumping, endurance or barrel racing or any other sport you are interested in. A BIG part of that foundation is having your horse confident and having Impulsion - or speed control. Impulsion is controlled forward energy where your 'Go' equals your 'Whoa'. I see so many people struggling with issues such as "My horse won't go" or "My horse keeps trying to run off" or "My horse jigs on the trail and won't relax". On this course we are going to delve into the reason for these issues such as saddle fit, rider balance, responsibilities and much more. You will learn about using psychology in your training and I will break it down into easy to follow steps on how to build a confident partner who has a great 'go button' and an equally great 'stop button' and all the transitions in between! If you got in your car and the brakes wouldn't work, you would immediately take it to the mechanic and get that fixed because you know the potential risk of injury or even death! You would do the same as if the accelerator was stuck and you couldn't stop your car from speeding up. Why do we put up with horses that don't listen to our request and take over? As the saying goes "If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always gotten" If you are not happy with your confident and speed control with your horses, then this is definitely a clinic you don't want to miss!!! Who can come to this clinic? Anyone who is able to ride at walk and trot (cantering is optional but will be covered in the clinic). This is the perfect clinic to continue on with after you have created a language on the ground and are now wanting to take that communication into your riding. We will cover both Ground skills and ridden on each day of the clinic. Clinic starts at 9am and finishes at 4.30 each day. Spectators are also welcome.

Course Cost: $385.00
Riders fee: $385
Early Bird discount ONLY $350 (if paid before 29th March)
