This is going to be a unique event, with a demo and workshop for people that have competitive horses and have some interest in using Natural Horsemanship to gain some different skills and approaches to improving themselves and their horses. Natural Horsemanship is way of training, that uses prey animal psychology and develops habits and skills in humans to be more of a partner for the horse. It’s not trick training or just rope wiggling and bridleless riding but away of adding more connection, feel and harmony between you and your horse to your training program.
There are 10 rider postions available and and you can be of any skill level and can bring any breed and of any discipline. This clinic is about the horse and what brings us together for the love of them.
Sam has demonstrated all over Australia, the US and Europe with both English and Western horses and understands what people are looking for in their chosen disciplines. 2016 Sam was Pat Parelli assist for demonstrations with problem horses at the Dublin Royal Show (One of the biggest show jumping events in the world).
