We’ve been hearing from many folks that it’s very helpful to be able to watch Amy dealing with horses with problems. Well, we decided to make this the focus of a whole 2 Day Clinic!

You’ll get to watch Amy dealing with 4 different horses with 4 different problems over a 2 day period. Amy will talk through the methods she uses to help the horse through the problems it arrived with.

Some possible problems that will be dealt with (we are on the lookout for our four “problem horses”- so we don’t have the specific issues that will be dealt with yet):

  • Horse won’t go!!
  • Horse won’t whoa!!
  • Cinchy, Pushy, and/or Bites
  • Trailer loading issues
  • Hard to Catch
  • Won’t stand for trimming/saddling/mounting
  • In my space and everyone elses!
  • Kicks, bucks
  • Scared of everything!
  • Etc.

Do you know a horse like this? Are you thinking that this would be a great experience for you and your horse? Or know someone else who would benefit? To have your horse participate in the clinic with Amy and learn how to successfully handle the issues that stand in your way from a great partnership, email Molly Sanders (molly@nwsavvy.com) with a description of your horse and the issues you’re having (we may ask for a video).

 

Cost:

One Day= $50

Both Days = $75

With Horse =  $125  This will involve at least one session each day (it might be 2 short sessions- but it will depend on each horse). You will get to observe the techniques Amy uses to successfully deal with the issue.  You will also get to watch the rest of the clinic and learn from the other 3 horses there.

Fundamentals of Training a Driving Horse in Fort Collins, CO @ Bowers Farm
Aug 10 – Aug 12 all-day

Join Nate Bowers for a dynamic 3 day clinic on teaching the fundamentals of training a horse to drive.

We will isolate the various skills and understanding

a horse needs in order to safely drive. The different stages we’ll explore are:

1. Accept and Understand the Harness

2. Accept and Understand the Vehicle.

3. Accept and Understand Leadership from Zone 5.

“Foundation before Specialization” definitely applies to the Driving Horse world. With this in mind, it’s not guaranteed that you’ll harness your horse up during this course, but it is guaranteed that you’ll learn the steps to building a confident, more skillful horse and you’ll have a clearer pathway to arrive at the stage of harnessing your horse in the future.

Harness, Hitch and Drive Clinic in Fort Collins, CO @ Bowers Farm
Sep 14 – Sep 15 all-day

 

Join Nate Bowers for an educational 2 days delving into the art of Harnessing, Hitching and Driving

Often, when it comes to driving, we end up trying to teach a horse how to drive while we’re learning as well. While this can be a very worthwhile endeavor, an even better situation is to learn the “ropes” with a horse that already knows how to drive. You’ll then be able to build your confidence and skills without having to worry about teaching a green horse. This is the foundation of this clinic. You’ll be spending 2 Hands-On days learning the ins and outs of harnessing, hitching and driving from horses that already know what they’re doing.

You’ll learn about harnessing, hitching and driving single horses as well as teams.
