Looking for ways to help build your horse’s confidence while strengthening your relationship together? Join CHR trainer Colter Heap as we journey through the equine mind to help them unlock their potential. The day will be split up into two sessions with an hour lunch in between. The AM portion of the clinic is all about breaking down complex tasks into easy-to-digest pieces for both you and your horse, giving you the tools to conquer tasks you never thought you could. Topics include approaching and retreating through different equine personalities, learning how to read equine body language, appropriately utilizing negative and positive reinforcement, and working through obstacles.
After lunch, Colter will go over how to incorporate groundwork techniques into the saddle. Join us as we learn to define the difference between sensitizing our horse vs. desensitizing and how every horse can benefit from gaining more confidence through clear communication with the horse and owner.
For this clinic, you will need a chair, appropriate clothing for the weather, closed-toe shoes, sun protection, and a lunch.
