Learn the "Whys" and "Why Nots" of horse training. When coming to a clinic with Michael, he is going to provide you with your very own program that will allow you to reach the goals that you desire. Each clinic is tailored to the horse and riders needs. Come and expect to RIDE!
Michael firmly believes in giving each rider the tools they need to put the pieces together in their training. You should not expect your learning to end when the clinic is over! Each person will be prepared to take the exercises they have learned and be able to apply them to other horses, or to continue to perfect them on the horse they rode.

3 days are great as each rider will really begin to become confident in their maneuvers and reach a more complete understanding in the 3rd day. Performance Clinics are our most popular and sought after clinics. The word "performance" does not mean you have to be a showman. Whether you are performing in the arena or out of the arena, this clinic applies to you! It is designed to take the next steps in your riding to get a great handle with your horse. You do not have to be an advanced rider to participate in this clinic either. No matter the discipline, we all strive for the same thing, better control.

Come expecting to learn:
How to fully engage the hind end and shoulders in your riding
Applying shoulder and hip control into spins and pirouettes
How to set your horse up for success
Teaching the horse responsiveness to your cues
How to ride through your stops, and get a nice "WOAH"
How to get a nice head set
Softness to the bridle
Side Passing, Half Passing, Haunches in/out & more
Correct fast and slow circles
How to correctly use your reins and legs while riding
How to get the perfect lead changes.
How to ride through your roll-back

This is the basic format of Performance Clinics, but they can be personalized to better meet your needs.
The Cost of this clinic is $550. A $150 deposit will save your spot. The remaining amount will be due the week prior to the clinic.
