Horsemanship On the Trail Clinic

Trail Horsemanship on the trail covers basic and intermediate groundwork concepts as well as intermediate and advancing ridden work. Riders work in an outdoor arena, large prairie area and out on the trail with and without the company of other horses. Riders work primarily at the trot and canter (allowing for adequate rest periods), getting their horses freed up forwards and relaxed in all three mentioned locations. This clinic is not for beginners or riders having serious confidence and balance issues. This clinic is good for young and older horses and owners that are looking for structured exposure to riding out on the trail. A prerequisite of Introduction to horsemanship and Intermediate horsemanship with Barb Gerbitz is necessary to attend this clinic.
