The first Walkabout Tour of the year finds us in Buckeye, Arizona at the South Buckeye Equestrian Center, February 2nd and 3rd. Highlights of the weekend include:
- An unstarted horse is invited to the tour for Clinton to demonstrate his colt-starting process. Clinton will explain how to start the Method with a horse and why earning a horse’s respect is the crucial first step to an enjoyable, safe partnership.
- Riding one of his performance horses, Clinton explains how he advances a horse’s training and starts pointing a horse towards a specific discipline.
- Often the most entertaining training demo of the weekend, Clinton works with a horse that has a severe trailer-loading problem. He starts the demo by showing the audience what not to do, or in other words, what each of us has tried to do with a horse that refuses to step in a trailer in the past. Using Approach and Retreat, Clinton has the horse loading himself on the trailer by the end of the demo.
- You’ll learn how to introduce your horse to obstacles and what to do when you encounter scary situations on the trail in the Training on the Trail demonstration.
- Advanced training sessions showcase how far the Method can take the partnership you share with your horse on the ground and under saddle.
- Over $9,000 in prizes and giveaways are up for grabs from Downunder Horsemanship and our team of sponsors!
- Audience members have the opportunity to support a great cause and take part in the Ritchie Charity Ball Toss. Clinton and feature sponsor Ritchie Industries are teaming up to help TRAK, a local nonprofit raise funds for their cause. Be sure to visit TRAK’s booth and purchase a tennis ball or two for your chance to win incredible prizes, including a complete collection of Clinton’s videos, a mecate set and more!
