This entertaining "all-levels" clinic in our popular small-group format is sure to keep you and your horse on your toes thinking ahead! 

Designed for confident and competent riders and their best horse, this clinic features fun challenges, creative tasks, and perhaps a little mayhem along the way. Put your partnership and skills to the test. There's no telling what Jonathan will pull out of his sleeve for this event! 

CLINIC OUTLINE

  • Test your teaching -¬†learn¬†creative ways to check if your horse truly understands your communication.

  • Learn how to "stretch the elastic band" with your horse mentally and physically to create a stronger connection
  • Improve your balance and coordination as a rider¬†and have a ton of fun along the way!
