This clinic is designed for beginner's wanting to learn the ins and outs of mountain trail and how to safely and confidently maneuver your horse over obstacles and through the course. We want to have fun while building a strong and confident partnership, keeping safety at the highest priority. In the morning, we will start on the ground and do all of the obstacles in-hand. You will need a rope halter, stick and string, and a 12-14' lead line. We will take a break for lunch, and then come back to the course tacked up and ready to ride! We will work all of the obstacles under saddle and even work a couple patterns! This is a fun and laid-back clinic for anyone, whether you are planning to show or working to advance your partnership, obstacles are a great and fun way to do just that. Spectators are welcome to join to watch the clinic! Spectators can not bring a horse. BBQ lunch is included with their ticket purchase. See you on the course!

BBQ lunch includes BBQ pulled pork sandwich, baked beans, macaroni and cheese, potato chips, side salad and tea or lemonade to drink.
