As our January session - we will have a brief orientation meeting to review the very basics of learning theory. Then we'll proceed to the indoor with the horses in hand and/or under saddle to enjoy lateral work on obstacles. You'll realize what fun and just how useful lateral work can be and give a new purpose to your work this show or trail season.

In this session we will cover -

~ Turn around box, planks, bridges

~ Logs and "rocks"

~ Gates - easy and fancy entry

If you attended the session in January this is a great progression. If you missed January, not a problem, you can jump in here!

(Bring your own horse - baby, adult, senior horses welcome. Use one of our horses $25. Auditors welcome and will be included in all aspects of discussion $25)
