Out of the Box Horsemanship Clinic
Time & Location
About the Event
In this clinic, we'll explore ways to integrate "alternative" training techniques into our horsemanship. Learn how things like positive reinforcement, liberty work, bridleless riding (which is just riding LESS with your bridle), trick training, etc. can complement traditional natural horsemanship techniques.
Investment for Participants: $400 for the whole weekend (details of what is included in the weekend below)
*limited to 10 participants, contact email at firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
