1 Day Finesse Training Sequence Workshop with Finesse Specialist Jackie Chant

The Chant Ranch, 351 Hamptons Road, Broadfields, Christchurch 7676


Type: 1 Day Workshop
Level: Level 3 and beyond
Savvy: Finesse

CREATE A HAPPIER HORSE * BECOME A BEAUTIFUL RIDER * EXPERIENCE FINESSE WITHOUT STRESS We dream of dancing with horses... not wrestling with them! So why is this so often the case when the pick up the reins? In Linda Parelli's Finesse training Sequence there are six steps that lead up to Contact. Using this step by step approach for teaching both horses and riders about precision I have watched the transformations in front of my eyes. Horses and riders are making such great progress using this approach and getting closer to their goal of dancing with their horse - Finesse without stress! This then allows them to take that Calm, Connected and Responsive horse into any discipline/sport they wish, whether that be Dressage, Western Dressage, Reining, Show Jumping, Eventing, Cowboy challenge..... anything they want to pursue, knowing that they have their horse properly prepared for the training needed to do that sport. As Olympian Eventer David O'Connor says "Most people learn how to compete before they learn how to ride and they learn how to ride before they learn how to understand how horses think" For this 1 day workshop you will need to be at a level where you do not have control issues and have developed a FreeStyle seat connection and Impulsion (Go = Whoa) and be riding confidently in a snaffle (not natural hackamore). Please contact Jackie if you are unsure if you are ready for this workshop to discuss the prerequisites further. All spectators of any level are very welcome.

Course Cost: $198.00
Full Rider fee $199
Early bird DISCOUNT $189
Spectator fee $60

Control, Direct & Indirect reins 9-step back up Ridden Sideways "Take the time it takes so it takes less time" is a quote Pat Parelli often reminds us of.
