The Stages & Assessment Program is a system for the student to receive feedback on their horsemanship. The clinics and camps give you the concepts, theories and exercises that will help you get the tasks done in the Stages Program. The tasks in this program are designed to be:
• A diagnostic tool in which you can see where you are at in your horsemanship, and receive help and feedback in key areas.
• A check and balance to make sure you have certain aspects of your horsemanship solid enough to build on as you progress.
• A guide to help you know what maximum stage of clinic or camp you should participate in. We believe there is no minimum stage of clinic. You can never be too good at the lower stages. As a student, your ability to hear and interpret with higher understanding of all that is said will be constantly changing. You will never stop learning.
