CLINIC IS FULL!! Please email us to be put on a wait list! kellie@mthoodcenter.com This will be a 5 session series starting on February 19th, February 26th, March 4th, March 11th and March 18th from 6:30-8:30 pm The first session on February 19th will be without your horse. We will go over the different equipment, body language of both the horse and handler, types of pressure, timing and feel, releases, rope and whip control. I have found this to be extremely helpful for people to develop the coordination and skill to effectively communicate with their horse on the ground. We will take the following week off in which my hope is you will continue to work on your coordination and rope handling skills. Please bring the equipment you plan on using for the series. The second session will be on February 26th and will be the first session with your horse. We will go over Hindquarter Yields, Forequarter Yields, Backing and Sending. Using both driving and steady pressure. Throughout this season horses could bring a certain behavior to the table that will need to be addressed. I will take this opportunity to go over the methods I would use to help the horse and handler work through the session. The third session will be on March 4th and will have a brief refresh of the weeks before exercises and then move onto sending, yielding the HQ's and bringing the FQ,s through, leading beside from a distance. The fourth session will be on March 11th and will continue to work on sending exercises, leading beside and from a distance. We will add in backing from a distance and side passing away.   The fifth session will be March 18th and with weather permitting we will work the horses on the ground through the Extreme Mountain Trail Course. I do believe that obstacles are the best way for you to develop your ability to read your horse and perfect your timing and feel. Obstacles also give your horse a sense of purpose for all the exercises you have been teaching them. Sessions:  February 19th 6:30-8:30pm February 26th 6:30-8:30pm March 4th 6:30-8:30pm March 11th 6:30-8:30pm March 18th 6:30-8:30pm   Cost $325.00 Limited To 10 Participants $10.00 to Audit Auditing for Members of Mt. Hood Center is Free.   It is important to make it to every session because each class builds off of the class before it.   To learn more about Stacey Riggs and Riggs Horsemanship go to www.Riggshorsemanship. com or look up Riggs Horsemanship on Facebook.
