DEFINITION & DURATION - This
is a 2-3 day Clinic which takes place out on the trail where those who
enjoy this activity are often faced with problems that can't be
duplicated in an arena. Due to the nature of Working Trail Ride
Clinics, this will not be an audited event.
CURRICULUM - Working Trail Ride
Clinics include the same basics, cues for going forward, backing up,
emergency stops, calm down, and giving to the bit, as does the regular
Rider's Clinic. It also addresses such things as "jigging"
on the trail, crossing streams and bridges, and problems that arise
while riding with other horses. Participants with other problems will
also have those problems addressed. The added pleasure of this Clinic
is to enjoy the beauty of the out-of-doors. The fee will also include
a Saturday evening bar-b-que. The first half day of this Clinic will
take place in an arena to allow horses and riders to get to know each
other and for Lynn to evaluate each horse and rider to make sure
everyone knows some basic cues in order to stay safe out on the trail.
PARTICIPATION - Pre-Registration
is required. Contact Lynn's office to
register. This Clinic is designed for those who wish to improve
their enjoyment and safety while trail riding. Horses must have had at
least some trail experience prior to the Clinic. Please do not bring a
horse that has never been outside an arena or show ring. If you or
your horse have had no trail riding experience, contact
