TIME: 10:00 AM- be in the arena and ready to go

LIMITED TO 10 PARTICIPANTS – so sign up as soon as possible!

This is what Warrick would like you to know about himself:

“I grew up outside of Melbourne, Australia, riding horses with my father, an accomplished horseman and rodeo cowboy. I started rodeoing at fifteen years old in Australia and New Zealand, and came to the U.S. in 1982 to further this dream. While in Steamboat Springs, CO, I attended a Monty Foreman clinic, which opened my eyes to a more effective way to communicate with horses, and since then, I have never looked back.

Over the past 17 years, I have worked with great horsemen, such as Jack Brainard, Buck Brannaman, Ray Hunt, Mike Major, Bryan Neubert, Dennis Reis, and Joe Wolter. Each person helped me develop a deeper understanding of horsemanship. I have taken this knowledge, transformed it, and put it into practice in order to get the most out of horses. My true understanding of horses has helped me start numerous colts and hold horsemanship clinics throughout the United States and Australia.

I welcome any opportunity to help others establish an effective relationship with their horse. People frequently come to me frustrated because their horse will not cooperate nor responds to their cues. By showing others a better and safer way to communicate with their horse, people leave my clinics with the power and knowledge to accomplish what they want.”
