WHAT TO EXPECT
Horse Speak “First Conversations” Introduction
Improving Confidence, Precision & Understanding with Working Equitation Obstacle Practice
Private or Semi-Private Session with Heidi (Optional)
Day 1: Horse Speak- Horses are always talking. This clinic day is focused on beginning to recognize their language system of gestures, postures, signals, and breath messages, so you can “hear” what they are saying. Learn how to enter into “First Conversations” and begin conversing with them in their own language. Guaranteed to take your horsemanship skills and all you do with horses to the next level. You will see horses differently from this day forward, that’s a promise! (This first day is required for anyone new to Horse Speak that wishes to participate in day 2 and 3.) Healing Rein facility horses will be used for day 1 of this clinic.
Day 2 & 3: Obstacle Play & Working Equitation- Deepen your understanding of how best to support your horse, meet his needs and answer his most pressing questions, all while having fun. Horse Speak continues throughout these fun-filled days. Day 2 will focus on skill building and obstacle play in-hand. Day 3 focuses on mounted application of all your new-found skills.
Day 4: Riders Choice Day– This optional day is for those who want a private or semi-private session with Heidi to expand on their clinic experience, or problem solve, either on the ground or in the saddle.
The goal of this clinic is to bring like-minded horse lovers together with the goal of creating deeper connection and improved communication, leading to safer, more enjoyable, trusting partnerships. This clinic is for you whether you are headed out to the trail, to Working Equitation competitions or simply just want to understand horses on a deeper level.
There are limited number of Clinic Lease Horses available for this clinic. Inquire with host Colleen Price if interested. 607-423-4253 or E-Mail
