What can you expect from Suzanne's Clinics...

You can surely expect to go home with a greater understanding of how best to progress to new levels with your horse. From basic to advanced ground maneuvers often forgotten in many programs to development of suppleness, lateral movements and advanced maneuvers under saddle our clinics help you advance to the next level with your horse. No matter where you're starting from, when you leave our clinics you will take with you the tools you need to progress you and your horse to the next level. Whether you bring your own horse or come as an auditor, you will gain take-home knowledge that will last a lifetime for an improved relationship with your horse and enable you to advance your skills for show or trail.

Types of clinics include:

Round Penning/Colt Starting:

Use of the round pen is an excellent means to establish first lines of communication with an un-tamed horse, extend communication with horses already in your program and/or build liberty techniques with your horse. Experience the breakthrough in communication with your horse through basic round penning techniques and how to use the round pen to problem solve various issues. Learn how the round pen can make effective use of your time when time is limited to keep your horse in tune for future training workouts.

Ground Work:

Our program places great emphasis on establishing a firm foundation on the ground. We believe ground work is fundemental to a successful and efficient transition to high school maneuvers. Learn what it feels like to achieve softness and responsiveness on the ground and learn how it affects your progress under saddle.

Riding:

Our riding clinics incorporate the theories of multiple disciplines to give participants insight on various levels for advancing their horsemanship skills under saddle. Experience what it takes to achieve collection and suppleness under saddle, rollbacks, stops and spins. Or, gain an understanding of the maneuves of classical dressage. From starting your horse on its first ride to preparing for your first show, our clinics will advance you to the level of training you're looking for.
