General Information for Clinics
As a clinician, I will come to you and work at your facility or home barn.  A large, fenced arena with suitable ground is essential, but no round pen is necessary.  Every clinic will be tailored individually for the participants who are registered, so the structure will change accordingly depending on the needs and skill level of the riders.  

My initial clinic series will be for two and three day clinics.  I have a maximum of 15 horse/rider combinations per clinic.  Every horse and rider will get an individualized program.  The same horse/rider combination must participate on the second day (and third, if it is to be a three day clinic.)

General Format:

Morning 9:30- 11:00 Classroom
                 11:00-12:30  Groundwork

12:30-2:00 Lunch

Afternoon  2:00-6:00 Riding- Semi-Private (2-3 horses per group) 45 to 60 min.

All registered students should plan on watching riding sessions other than your own, as you will gain valuable insights by watching.

No videotaping, handguns, or pets.  No stallions.  Auditors for an additional fee.  One participant in each location will need to manage and organize the clinic details.  Travel expenses, lodging, transfers  and meals are to be provided for the clinician, in addition to the clinic fee.  A minimum of 9 riders must sign up in order for the clinic to be scheduled.

Since EVERY clinic is individualized and tailored for the participants, the organizer of your group should call me and we will set dates, location, price,  and arrange all the details together.  I will send via email: release forms, applications and an info sheet which should be filled out by every participant.

Every participant will need appropriate tack for their discipline,  AND a snaffle bit bridle (egg butt or barrel head, standard to thick mouth, no twisted or wire bits), a long longe line (preferably with rubber washer at the end) , a long longe whip, working and riding gloves, a set of side-reins (with rubber donut preferred), boots or spats (that are TALL -i.e. come up to just below the knee), and a properly fitted and secured ASTM-standard (F 1163)/SEI Certified protective equestrian headgear/ hardhat which is to be worn when riding, handling or near equines.  More info at time of scheduling.
