In any discipline, to be great you must first master the fundamentals, and these two clinics are FULL of them! This unique event offers two separate clinics in our popular small group format. Course 1 will run in the morning, and Course 2 in the afternoon. 

In Course 1 you'll learn to establish an effective communication on the ground and under saddle to safely create a willing partner.

Course 2 explores a deeper understanding of prey animal psychology and physiology to uncover how influencing the horse’s bend and balance can create relaxation in movement, both on the ground and riding. 



  • An introduction to the first levels of the Jonathan Field Horsemanship Training Scale™ of Path & Speed
  • Focus on leadership and safety, both on the ground and while riding.
  • Learn to read behaviour through the 6 C's™ and understand the psychology of the horse.
  • Learn to establish personal space on the ground and do a pre-ride check before you ride in order to stay safe.
  • Building communication using the Primary Equine Language™ to get good body control.
  • Learn riding body positions rein aids, and equitation to be a more effective rider - and know when to get off!
  • Learn a canter program to build confidence in you and your horse.



  • Focus on the next steps in the Jonathan Field Horsemanship Training Scale™: Bend & Balance on line & riding
  • Learn to use pressure appropriately and read your horse correctly
  • Discover how to “Stretch the elastic band” both emotionally and physically
  • Teach your horse to find relaxation in movement by finding an active neutral 
  • Learn to develop an intent-based communication 
  • Learn to use leg yields and other lateral exercises to improve canter departures, and develop a more comfortable canter to ride.
✴ Each clinic has a different dynamic of people and horses. Some lessons may be focused on more than others, including some not mentioned here. If one of these goals is important to you, please mention so at the beginning of the clinic.
