This 2-day riding clinic will focus on vertical flexion (the start of collection), side passing, rollbacks, shoulder in/out to gain shoulder control, the start of a turnaround/pivot/spin, working on leads at the lope, stop on whoa, & keeping your horse soft when transitioning down to a walk from a trot or lope. Depending on progress made, we may be able to touch on some of the more advanced exercises like two-tracking, counter bending, more advanced hindquarter control, etc.
To participate in this clinic, you must have participated in one of LNHT's previous Foundation Groundwork/Riding Clinics or have had a private clinic with LNHT. Because there are a few loping specific exercises that will be practiced, it is highly recommended you be comfortable loping your horse on a loose rein.
The tasks in this clinic will be practiced enough for one to understand the basics and see a slight change in one's horse. One then takes it home to practice. Problems will be addressed, but a clinic is not where they are fixed. One will be given the necessary tools to apply them at home.
It is **MANDATORY** to come prepared with an O or D-ring snaffle bit.
It would be ideal to come prepared with a rope halter, a 14-15 ft lead rope, an O or D-ring snaffle bit, & a training stick & string as groundwork is strongly suggested to prepare your horse at the start of the clinic.
