An integrated Hands-on Ground Work and Riding Clinic                     

Windsong Ranch / 11301 SW Campbell Loop / Fayetteville, AR 72701

Whether you want to compete at the upper levels of dressage or another discipline, ride for pleasure or anything in between, the essence of all equine sports is the harmonious partnership of horse and rider.  Hidden dysfunctions can interfere with your horse's mobility, health and sense of well-being.  This clinic will help you identify and remove the unseen obstacles that stand between you and your equestrian goals.

Debbie has combined her experience as a competitor and trainer of 28 years with her body work knowledge to show participants how immobility in any area of the horse will create a lack of relaxation and movement.  Deb has created a system to determine where the horse may have these restrictions.  We invite you to let go of tension and allow your horse to do the same.

Cost: $300 including materials  Audit: $100 per day

"Tom Dorrance, Ray Hunt, John Lyons and Pat Parelli are all men I've studied under during my more than thirty years as a trainer of horses and people.  Each one had their own way of doing things, but we all had the same master teacher, and that's the horse."  Eric Clarke

At his training facility in Georgetown, TX, Eric works with students of all ages, helping them become a partner with their horse.

This clinic is perfect for any level of rider, especially those looking to improve an aspect of your horsemanship.  If you find yourself struggling with your equine, come and let Eric put you back on the road to success!

Both days will start with groundwork.  Everything you learn on the ground will tie into the riding portion later in the day.
