Day 1: Online and Manual Riding
In a fun learning environment, get handy with your equipment and improve your groundwork skills. Day 1 is all about getting your horse supple online and softer off your rein. Gain the tools to soften your horse mentally and physically on the ground and riding.
Day 2: Liberty and Bridleless Riding
Even if you have no desire to ride without a bridle, you’ll find benefit in getting your horse responsive off your leg and understanding of your cues. We will focus on developing a connection and building a better relationship with your horse.
Day 3: Bridling up and Lead Changes
Stepping back into manual riding, we will take a look at developing softness in the bridle in order to work towards collection. We discuss vertical flexion, leads and lead changes. Don’t let these topics scare you away. This is simply helping your horse understand his responsibilities with the bit and helping you get your horse supple enough to do a lead change. Any level rider is welcome.
Day 4: Cows and Riding with Purpose
Give your horse a job and put your skills into action on cows. We will work on developing your horse’s connection with cow, and later more skills such as riding out on the trail. Fun, fun, fun!!
