I’m so excited to announce that Finnigan Farms is sponsoring TR Horsemanship in the 2018 Players Choice Extreme Mustang Makeover! Finnigan Farms is generously allowing TR Horsemanship the use of their arena on Saturday, July 14th, to host a clinic.

-Clinic is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (one hour lunch; please bring sack lunch)
-Cost is $100
-Clinic is limited to just 6 participants to keep a personalized learning environment!

I hope to cover the fundamentals of communication and liberty work. The basic idea of liberty work is simply gaining a relationship with your horse, in which your horse chooses to stay with you (without ropes attached): Then building upon that basis to more skilled maneuvers at liberty. The small clinic environment will allow flexibility for personalized progress/individual goals.

My plan is to:
1) Start with a short round pen demo, and explain my goals in that environment, and the start of work at liberty.
2) Involve participants in what I would consider essential groundwork: Gaining respect and building confidence, while encouraging a healthy relationship.
3) Translating groundwork knowledge into ridden work.
4) Progression to beginning performance maneuvers.

That's a pretty generic outline, but I want to stay fairly flexible, depending on the goals of participants.
