An introduction to horsemanship clinic is about feel, timing and balance; what it means to the horse and how to use it. It teaches the handler where, when and how to offer a feel to their horse to get a desired response.
Participants work on the basics of ground work and ridden work and use of the rope halter, lead rope, flag, mecate reins, and snaffle bit as tools to communicate with the horse. Much time is spent learning about and considering horse behavior and expression.
