Painting Day with Mark Grice

 

 

 

 

MARCH BREAK ~

Clinic One - EXTREEM COWBOY THREE

 

10:30 am to when ever he is done.
Bring a lunch...
If you had a great time in the first two sessions, you will be amazed with this one too!
EXTREEEM COWBOY is an event that challenges both horse and rider to maneuver through a series of trail and farm based obstacles demonstrating both horsemanship and trust between horse and the rider.
All of our riders and horses can and should partake in such clinics.
Horses of all breeds with little or no specialized training are encouraged to participate.
Two primary purposes of these clinics are to have fun with your horse while improving your horsemanship and build confidence.

The first part of the day is spent working on the obstacles, working one one with Vic with emphasis on how to improve your connection with your horse over the many challenges that are on the obstacle course.

At the end of the day we will go one by one thru the obstacle course and show off the results of your new found skill!
EVERYONE did amazing at the last clinic
It was terrific - 5 hours long!
So back by popular demand this is EXTREEEM THREE.
We need to be here by 10:30 and ready to ride by 11:00.
We go till when ever we are done ... Vic doesn't rush,
and we will finish when we finish .

 

Clinic Two - Jumping Practice Critique and Gymnastics. With Harley Ferreira

March 13th.
Ready to ride by 10:30 - We will go for two hours.

This is a clinic for 6:00 students and adults. The fences will be low x rails and poles - and is not for our 7:00 students.
.
It is all about jumping exercises that benefit those needing work on their jumping position, pace, balance, rhythm and straightness.
.
A grid of gymnastic exercise to improve your horse's jumping style and allow you to concentrate on your jumping position.
.
Help to
~ improve straightness, by requiring you to visually line up the centers of the jumps with objects in the distance.
~ teaches track-riding skills, by encouraging you to use your eyes throughout the exercise.
~ improves turning skills, by asking you to make smooth, efficient turns from one jump to the next.
~ lets you focus on your jumping instead of worrying about getting over the fences, because the jumps are low and easy.
~ through repetition, helps you maintain a steady rhythm on course, without feeling the pressure to "find a distance" (judge the take-off point) to the fences.
