Topics can include: horse and rider confidence, moving the forehand and the hindquarters, basic circles and straight lines; how to do an emergency stop.

Long time students of natural horsemanship, or students who have completed at least one Introduction to Natural Horsemanship Clinic, will find these clinics indispensable.
