In December, Clinton will be joining Ian Francis at the Queensland State Equestrian Centre, where the two horsemen will share their knowledge and training methods. Throughout the December 14th and 15th event, Clinton and Ian will be alternating presenting training demonstrations, covering various topics. Clinton’s training demonstrations will include:
Get Your Colt Off to the Best Start
Working with a horse that has never been saddled or ridden, Clinton explains how to lay a foundation for a successful first ride with a horse. From introducing the saddle through to the first ride, you’ll learn his step-by-step process and the extra steps he takes to ensure that horse and rider stay safe.
Clinton shares key exercises for all levels of riders and horses to better their skillset at the lope. You’ll learn how to teach a horse to maintain gait and lope confidently on a loose rein as well as how to teach your horse to carry himself correctly bridled up.
The Importance of Groundwork and Gaining Your Horse’s Respect
If you’re looking to maximize the time you spend with your horse on the ground, this demo is for you. Clinton shares his go-to exercises when he’s looking to gain a horse’s respect and trust in a limited amount of time.
Suppling the Five Body Parts
No matter what discipline you do with your horse, to succeed you must be able to control his body from his nose to his tail. Clinton explains how to soften and supple a horse’s five body parts – head and neck, poll, shoulders, ribcage and hindquarters – for ultimate body control and increased performance.
