Join us on Saturday June 27 and Sunday June 28, 2015 for a 2-Day "Ride with Respect" Horsemanship Clinic. This clinic is hosted by Micheline Beaulieu and will be held at her facility ecurie car-beau, in l'ange-gardien, Quebec.
One of the best aspects of working with horse people is getting the opportunity to meet their "humans". I love to meet new people.....new Horse people even more cause let;s face it...they are THE best!
It was fun meeting and working with Micheline Beaulieu because she is that kind of horsewoman who has a thirst for knowledge. She REALLY wants to learn and when you have a rider who really wants to learn who is also an avid horse lover, well you just know good stuff is going to happen. ...
So, of course, when Micheline approached me about conducting a clinic at her facility, I said "Let's do it!"
Over the course of 2 days I will demonstrate, teach to you to you and help you to grasp the concepts and importance of why it is vital that you earn the respect of your horse. This is not just about what we need.........it is what our horses need too!
Through the use of common sense exercises I will help you to learn to make the connection between earning the respect of your horse and how it affects every aspect of that relationship. I will also demonstrate how basic groundwork exercises can absolutely enhance your riding experiences. We will work from both the ground and the saddle.
Now all work and no play makes for cranky riders so, over the course of this weekend I will work with you to help you combine and reinforce these new skills and your existing fundamental horsemanship skills using various Obstacle work allowing you to apply what you are learning, ask loads of questions and simply have fun with other horse lovers who share your goal of a safe, productive, and stress-free relationship with their horses.
All disciplines welcome....horses are horses and their needs are universal. They all require a confident, respectful, knowledgeable leader.
This clinic will be conducted in English, however Je ai besoin de pratiquer mon français, so I guess I will be learning a thing or 2 as well. My husband, Patrick Robitaille will, of course, be with me and he will be able to assist those riders who need clarification.
The horses, well they only care about one language, a simple silent language and that is Equis.
