"Developing your confidence with obstacles on the ground and into the saddle"

 

Varian Arabian Ranch

1275 Corbett Canyon Rd

Arroyo Grande, Ca 93420

I’ve found that we need as much exposure to balls, tarps and play toys as our horses. It’s in HOW we introduce these obstacles and objects to ourselves and our horses.

 

We’ll introduce our horses to everything we can think of in a controlled area on day one before saddling up on the second day.

 

These skills will enable us to respond effectively no matter where we are during our lives with our horses.

 

Confidence can come from you when your horse needs it most!

Course cost is $425

Auditors are welcome $45 per day

Varian Arabian Ranch

1275 Corbett Canyon Rd

In this advancing course, we’ll expand on the basic communication with our horses through varying lengths of lines and body language.

We’ll test these advancing skills by practicing the “Liberty” in a larger arena/round pen.
