This clinic builds on the skills taught in the Foundation class. Riders learn how to go beyond the basics and go beyond the "kindergarten" habits and exercises that we get stuck it. They will develop a higher level of safety and skill which will lead to a greater level of fun and gratification with their horses. 

We will be working on:

Communicating with your seat
Leg positions
Guiding with your legs (round turns and square turns)
Transitioning into one handed riding
Energy management (go and whoa) 
Diagonals and picking up leads

Wel may also cover many trail riding related topics including: Trailering
Trail manners
Natural obstacles
Crossing water
Controlling spooky situations
