A 10-day Colt Starting Clinic will be held at the Downunder Horsemanship Ranch this summer for Method Ambassadors to receive certification to start colts for the public. The clinic will be taught by Professional Clinician Jeff Davis and will take place June 21 through July 1. Participation spots in the clinic are full.
Clinton added the additional certification for Method Ambassadors in an attempt to help customers make better informed decisions about the clinician or ambassador they send their horses to. Ambassadors who complete a colt starting course and receive a passing mark from Downunder Horsemanship will be certified to accept colts for training. The certification does not permit them to teach clinics or private lessons focused on colt starting. Teaching other horsemen the colt starting techniques is reserved for Professional Clinicians.
Currently, 19 Method Ambassadors are certified to start colts for the public:
