What the Academy Horse program is:
The six-week Academy Horse program is dedicated to teaching your horse the entire Fundamentals level of the Method. Groundwork and riding exercises designed to earn your horse’s trust and respect comprise the Fundamentals and are the foundation to establishing a safe and enjoyable partnership. Horses enrolled in the program are ridden extensively on the trail and worked over Clinton’s obstacle course to ensure they are just as safe, calm and trustworthy outside the arena as they are inside of it. Learn more about the exercises the horses are taught on our website.
The Academy Horse program is for those who are passionate about the Method and are serious about getting results. You’ve seen the softness and control Clinton has of his finished horses, this is the foundation to achieve that level of finesse.
Who it’s for:
You have a “problem” horse…
All problems are caused by a lack of respect or fear, or in some cases, both. No matter what the source of your horse’s problem, the Fundamentals is the answer to earning his respect and trust. If you don’t want to give up on your horse, the Academy’s boot camp-like training program is the solution. Our success in turning horses that have been deemed dangerous and hopeless cases into willing partners is unparalleled. We’ll give your horse the opportunity to prove he’s a reliable partner full of potential.
You are an inexperienced horseman…
You may have the best intentions in the world, love your horse unconditionally and have an unlimited amount of time to dedicate to working with him but lack the knowledge and experience to train him. That’s where we step in. We’ll develop a safe, respectful partner for you to not only have fun with, but with his training he will make you a better horseman. Your horse’s knowledge of the Fundamentals will help improve your confidence, fine-tune your horsemanship abilities and make the time you spend with your equine partner more enjoyable.
You have the knowledge to train a horse but not the time…
A truly broke horse needs equal doses of long rides, wet saddle pads and concentrated training. Unfortunately, there are times in life when your schedule doesn’t allow you to work consistently with your horse. We dedicate 2 1/2 hours a day, six days a week to each training horse in order for them to be safe and respectful partners. Your horse will learn essential groundwork exercises, be ridden in the arena, on the trail, with other horses and worked extensively over an obstacle course. By the end of his training, your horse will have a great foundation in place for you to build off and go on to excel in the discipline of your choice. Green-broke horses and colts to start under saddle are accepted into the program.
