Session 1 - Groundwork Clinic: Are you looking for your horse to be a willing, respectful, and confident partner? Are you looking to gain confidence in your skills handling a difficult horse in hand? In this clinic you will learn the fundamentals of building a partnership with your horse that will turn them from spooky and unwilling, to confident and attentive!
Session 1 Clinic Times: 10:50 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. or 11:40 a.m. - 12:20 p.m.

Session 2 - Face that fear! Desensitizing session: No horse is truly bomb proof. But what they are, is prepared. They are trained how to handle themselves when they feel fearful. In this session we will cover steps to helping you teach your horses how to handle themselves when their fight or flight response is triggered. It is recommended to take the fundamentals session if you plan to participate in the desensitizing session as this will build off those skills.
Session 2 Clinic Time: 12:30 p.m. - 1:10 p.m.

Sign up by June 18th and please be prepared to pay by cash on the day of the clinic.

Friday Cavaletti Lessons
Are you looking to start over-fence work with your horse, mix up your normal routine, or add something extra for back & hind-end strengthening? Try our ADULT CAVALETTI LESSON! Next Lesson: Friday, June 15, 2018 at 6pm

This will be a 1-hour group lesson with up to 4 riders on an every-other week basis. (If there is interest enough for a second group, then we will have groups A & B riding on ‘off’ weeks from each other). The first half of the lesson will be concentrated on flat work and proper warm-up for our horses, and then the second half will be dedicated to various cavaletti exercises at the walk, trot, and eventually canter. I hope for this to be a fun but educational time for both horse and rider where skill level will of course be recognized so that challenges and growth can come in time.

Be sure to arrive with plenty of time to groom and tack your horse (approx. 30mins before lesson start). $35 per rider. Please contact Bobbie to schedule if interested so that horse assignments can be arranged properly. Call or Text Phone: (508) 450-8173 or Email: robertabigelow716@gmail.com
