Testimonials:

“She speaks of and about the Horses from her heart and mind always keeping the relationship foremost. Katherine is a true advocate of the Horse.”
Tara Reynolds, Twin Birch Farm

“Her program isn’t about getting caught up in labels, like ‘natural’, it’s about getting caught up in Horsemanship. I now understand herd mentality, ground work, patience, safety and so much more.”
Mike Talbot, Lost Acres Ranch

“No bells, whistles, special equipment, favorite breed, level or discipline. Communication, method and instruction to keep the horses and rider become better partners.”
Jodi Summerit Durango, CO

CLINIC DETAILS
Week long workshops are designed for those wanting to improve their confidence, communication, partnership and safe riding skills with horses. Professionals as well as pleasure riders benefit greatly from this week of intense study and fun. As the week progresses each day builds on the previous. Each day takes on its own personality as side trips riding into the rolling mountains and numerous multi colored canyon, discovering and learning about the fern and fauna, dress and play in period clothing, swimming, shooting authentic 1800’s era guns and adult camaraderie develop. Campfires, dinners under the stars, music, storytelling, dancing by the piano, trying your hand in western poker like Wyatt Earp and recapping the day’s events with new friends at happy hour, is enjoyed by all. Viewed as an adult camp with a theme, this format has the highest retention by the students. Working with a large variety of horses with varying personalities and issues, is an invaluable opportunity and critical to the learning process. There is no substitute for handling dozens of horses this week.
