View the 2021 Clinic Dates

Our clinics are about having FUN with your horse, increasing your skill and enhancing your relationship with your horse through the application of solid horsemanship principles.  Clinics are also limited to 6 people for maximum one-on-one instruction.

In this clinic we spend some time at the ranch, then head to the mountains where we'll overnight and work on a variety of natural obstacles and trail scenarios.

Clinic Focal Points

  • Learning how to camp out with your horse in the mountains
  • Exposing your horse to a various environmental scenarios 
  • Creek and rivers crossings
  • Riding mountain trails from wide to narrow, up and down hills

The fundamentals for this course are developed in the Trail Obstacle Horsemanship clinic, which is a prerequisite.  If you and your horse have taken a Trail 1 or Obstacle 1 clinic with us within the past 2 years, that qualifies as a prerequiste too.  We've updated some clinic names for 2020: The Trail Obstacle Horsemanship clinic replaces last year's Trail 1 Clinic.  This clinic replaces last year's Trail 2 Clinic.

To attend this clinic, please ensure you are comfortable walking and trotting on your horse.  If you or your horse have specific issues you'd like to focus on, or you are not comfortable riding your horse, plan to attend a Progressive Horsemanship Clinic first so we can work 1 on 1 to help you out.
