Reminder to all that our next meeting will be at our new starting time of 7:00 PM.
Kristy Taylor will present our speaker topic for November’s Membership meeting. Kristy has an extensive background in dressage and currently is showing at the national level with several of her miniature horses.
Topic: Collection. What is it exactly? How do I convince my horse to give it a try?
Join Kristy for a interactive classroom presentation on collection through harmony between a horse and rider. You will work on proper body alignment, balance, half halts, contact and more to invite your horse to willingly step into collection. This will be a fun interactive presentation – dress in loose clothing so we may prance and dance around the classroom experimenting with our soft and quiet aids. From beginners to more advanced riders there will be something for everyone!
Note this is classroom only – no horses.
Don’t forget meetings are open to anyone interested in the club, or those just wanting to hear a good speaker. If you have a friend or acquaintance that enjoys horses, invite them to attend.
Our regular monthly meeting coming up on Wednesday,
October 4th, 2017 will be starting at 7:00 p.m.
This time change is in response to many members’ requests to push the time back to allow more time before the meeting to accommodate after work dinner and stable chores.
Our Speaker for the evening is member Michele Mortensen and her topic will be Equine Therapy. She will be following up on our September clinic where members were able to participate in a sample equine therapy exercise. She will talk to us about the various kinds of Equine Therapy; how they are applied for different groups, and how they are experienced/performed by participants.
(Only a few participant spots left –
RSVP now and add jumping to your horse-partnership skill set.)
Learn how to properly jump your horse over small obstacles.
It is not a question of do you or don’t you want to jump your horse. . . but rather what will you do when your horse decides He’s going to jump, with or without you!
This clinic is for any and all riders to learn how to properly control their bodies and their horse to properly execute a jump over an encountered obstacle – it is not “boots and breeches” riding for a hunter class at the local horse show. Come and learn the basic skills of jumping. You will gain an understanding of the mechanics of how horses jump and acquire correct technique for safely negotiating that moment when your horse goes for those creek broad jumps, log high jumps, and of course the dreaded garden hose rocket launch.
This is an all day clinic that will begin promptly at 9:30 AM and finish about 3:30 PM. There will be an hour lunch break 12-1 PM, so plan on bringing lunch and a drink.
Participant space for this clinic will be limited, so be sure and reserve your space via an RSVP to: boxg.miller @ yahoo.com (without spaces)
