Clinic Schedule

I would like to sincerely thank my clinic hosts and participants for the opportunities they provide me as a teacher. I consider teaching horsemanship a privilege, and feel honored to share my knowledge and experience. My students and their horses soon become friends whom I care for very much. Again, thank you to both hosts and participants for all that you do to make our clinics such a positive learning environment. Barb
