Happy Horse Clinic - Becoming a better rider

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

Type: 2 Day Clinic
Level: Beginner - Intermediate
Savvy: Theory, Simulations and Riding

In this clinic you are going to learn so much about how to become a better rider and a better leader for your horse. What is a good rider? Many people would say a good rider has skills such as… *Sits up straight *Has a ‘good’ position *Can stay on almost no matter what *Has advanced riding skills such as flying changes, jumping, slide stops, collection… But what would your horse say is a good rider? Most likely it would be a rider that has qualities such as… *A kind heart *A considerate attitude *Gentle hands *Steady legs *Good balance *Self-carriage *A plan - good leadership qualities. It is important not to confuse skills with quality, nor should they be separated. No matter how skilled a rider is, the quality of their riding is what makes a horse happy. What score would your horse give you as a rider? In this clinic we are going to explore each of these qualities which will set you on a new pathway of discovery, awareness and give you the strategies for MASSIVE IMPROVEMENT and as a result your leadership will improve HUGELY! Horses attending must be at a stage in their development that they no longer have any major control issues as this will stop you from you being able to work on yourself. This is the perfect follow on clinic from the Happy Horse Confidence and Speed Control clinic held on Oct 1/2nd or the Happy Horse clinic 2 - Connection, relaxation and responsiveness held on December 10/11th 2022. Time: 9.00 - 4.30 each day.
