Join us for a 3-day clinic with Glenn Stewart in Armstrong, BC.  Clinics are a safe and fun learning environment where you can try a variety of techniques with hands on help, receiving feedback on what action to take specific to your situation. Spectators are welcome and it can be a valuable experience to watch a variety of horses and situations, but nothing beats the experience of actually participating as a clinic rider. You'll accelerate your horsemanship by building mental and muscle memory that comes from actually doing and gain confidence that comes with knowing you are asking your horse properly for the result you are looking for. Sometimes the best part of a clinic can be getting a better picture of what to ask for in the first place!

Clinic Description
Go Way Beyond Riding …being able to read horses is one of the greatest skills a horseman can have.  It tells you what approach you need to take and helps you resolve problems quickly.  Stage 1 is the start and where a positive balance of trust and respect is created, eliminating many common problems and safety issues.  The Clinic will help you develop an understanding of how to achieve respect and safety.  You’ll learn how to use ground and riding exercises that horses use to play with one another, break down the prey-predator relationship, and create a language with which to communicate and teach your horse things on the ground you want him to understand when you are on his back.

Learn the little things that mean so much to the horse, from how you approach him, how you handle your halter and put it on, the quality (or lack of!) your touch, where you hold the lead rope, easy ways to saddle that are effective and inoffensive.  Because we are working with horses, each and every course will be slightly different, and sometimes excellent learning opportunities present themselves, unique to the group of people and horses.  We will also be developing powerful strategies for building confidence and overcoming fear in both the horse and rider.
Glenn’s clinics are progressive, which means exercises in the clinic are built upon each other - each new task touches on what was learned previously.  All these theories and techniques build success for when you are in the saddle - learn a "pre-flight check" - how to warm your horse up on the ground before you ride, and what to look for to ensure that he will be a willing, thinking, and respectful partner once you get on.

Because this is a three-day clinic, we will follow a progression of what needs to happen prior to sitting in the saddle to promote success, we may or may not be riding.  This clinic is beneficial to all styles and disciplines, from the serious competitor to the recreational rider.
