Coming to you this fall in Blue Ridge, TX a special Trail and Water Crossing clinic! Learn the leadership skills needed to ride out and have fun doing it! We focus on improving our horsemanship skills to get our horse working for us. You will get practical experience riding through creeks, ponds, and up/down hills. This is a great way to improve your relationship with your horse all while having fun with a great group of riders.

In this 2 day clinic, you’ll find out how you as the rider can cultivate a strong focus and help your horse with his own emotional fitness on the trail. You will receive riding tips for riding different terrain, navigating water crossings, and much more. Have a specific issue you want help with (spooking, gigging on the trail, etc.)? We will help you problem solve to find a natural solution.

We have a beautiful indoor arena to ride in as well as additional riding through a near by creek. Blue Ridge also offers overnight guest rooms available with access to a kitchen. It’s the perfect way to turn your weekend into a relaxing horse getaway!
