Partnership Clinic, Oct. 21-22, 2023

Join us for this one of a kind clinic where we will explore the human & horse partnership dynamic. In this 2 day clinic, Matea Babcock will help you enhance your partnership with your horse. Whether your horse struggles in new environments or feel like you’ve plateaued in progress, this can help you take your horsemanship to the next level. These skills open the door for your horse to succeed in the show ring, on the trail, and at home. Come explore this topic with us October 21-22, 2023.


Saturday – We will introduce tools to help you and your horse remain calm in stressful situations. We will discuss how to identify different emotional states within our horses. Bringing together both sides of the partnership, you will learn the keys to helping your horse thrive in new environments. Furthermore, we will work towards enhancing communication between both partners.


Sunday – Refine your horse’s transitions and brakes, in order to find more balance between “whoa” and go. You will learn the phases of a good stop. We will discuss ways to influence your horse’s reactions to stress by learning to adjust your own. Working with your horse to increase the emotional intelligence in your relationship will help you develop a partner that is in tune with your focus and suggestion.


You’ll learn:

– Elements to improve your partnership in both the rider and the horse

– How to identify and resolve problems in the partnership

– How to help your horse thrive in high pressure environments (show, trail ride, parade, cows, etc.)

– Ways to regulate your horse’s speed with brakes, transitions, and within gait


This course is for horses that…

– Fall apart away from home

– Get easily overwhelmed

– Have plateaued in progress
