About the Clinic:
Easy to understand techniques for establishing respect and trust with your horse and achieving light responses from your horse on the ground and mounted. These essential exercises help you to establish your leadership position, gain your horse's attention and determine each time how he (or she) is responding to you. The exercises will help your horse be calm, focused and willing, and they will increase his coordination for precise and fluid movements as well as increase his flexibility. By practicing these fundamental exercises with your horse, your speed and direction control will be greatly enhanced. These exercises will prepare both horse and rider mentally, physically and emotionally for a more successful, safe, and enjoyable ride.
You do not need to be an experienced rider or horse person to participate with your horse in this clinic. Beginners as well as advanced riders have found the skills taught in Ed's clinics to be very useful. His system of working with horses builds confidence in handling horses on the ground and mounted, equips owners with natural communication skills and establishes their authority as a confident, consistent leader for their horse. You will develop a better relationship with your horse- lighter responses, more respect, trust, and harmony. You will understand how your horse perceives the ideas you present to him and how to communicate with him in the way he communicates with other horses. This is all accomplished with respect for the horse by using gentle, natural horsemanship techniques.
